The Wonsan Army-People Power Station in Kangwon Province of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a large-scale hydropower station generating electricity by changing the river course.
In December Juche 105 (2016) the respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un called at the completed station and said with pleasure that a firm prospect opened to realize the desire of the great Kim Jong Il who had been so concerned to improve the living of the people in Kangwon Province.
He continued: Coming to the dam of the Wonsan Army-People Power Station, I found the steep mountains. My heart ached at the thought that Kim Jong Il would have come to such a place as he was so much concerned to provide a happy life to the people of Kangwon Province.
That day, Kim Jong Un warmly called it a posthumous power station associated with the leadership of Kim Jong Il.
Ground was broken for the Wonsan Army-People Power Station in March Juche 98 (2009).
The great leader Kim Jong Il named it “Wonsan Army-People Power Station” and fixed the positions of the dam, waterway tunnel and generator room.
And in July Juche 99 (2010) he gave field guidance to the construction site of the power station and made great painstaking efforts for the project and the improvement of living of the people in Kangwon Province till the last period of his life.
Kim Jong Un paid deep attention to the construction of the power station associated with the devoted efforts of Kim Jong Il and solved all problems arising in the project.
This is how the Wonsan Army-People Power Station was inaugurated in April Juche 105 (2016).
The completion of the power station has made it possible to more fully solve the issues of electricity, drinking water, and industrial and irrigation water badly needed for the economic development and the improvement of the people’s living in Kangwon Province and make the natural scenery of the region more beautiful.
The water rippling in the large artificial lake of the Wonsan Army-People Power Station warmly flows into the hearts of the people in Kangwon Province as the spring of love of Kim Jong Il for the people.
