Nam Theun 2 Shareholders Consolidate Holding

EDF and EGCO buy up Nam Theun 2 shares from Ital-Thai

PRLog - Oct. 4, 2010 - Two shareholders of the Nam Theun 2 Power Company (NTPC) have increased their stake in the company, which operates the largest hydroelectric plant in Laos. On September 29, Electricité de France International (EDFi) acquired an extra 5% of NTPC, while the Electricity Generating Public Company of Thailand Limited (EGCO) increased its holding by 10%.

The shares were sold by the Italian-Thai Development Public Company, which has divested its entire holding in NTPC. NTPC shares are now divided between EDFi (40%), EGCO (35%) and the Lao Holding State Enterprise, with 25%.

NTPC was founded to develop, own and operate the Nam Theun 2 Multi-Purpose Project. The Project features a 1,070 MW Hydropower Station and a broad range of social and environmental programmes designed to boost development through public-private partnership, mainly in Khammouane province of Laos.
