   Pyongyang, November 20 (KCNA) -- The construction of hydro-power stations is progressing apace in different parts of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. A huge blasting was conducted at the construction site of the Wonsan Youth Hydro-power Station recently to secure enough gravels and sand. The constructors are now pushing ahead with various projects including building dams in the upper and lower parts of the river and cladding dams with stones.
    They are carrying out their daily assignment at 120 percent in the project of covering the water tunnel with concrete.
    Those in charge of assembling generators have finished in the main the assembling of facilities and the electric power system projects so as to produce electricity at hydro-power stations Nos. 2, 3 and 4.
    A collective innovation has been reported from the construction site of the Orangchon Hydro-power Station.
    The builders there have introduced efficient construction methods in the assembling of generators, closing up of the temporary drainage and the foundation work, thus making it possible to carry out the projects ahead of the schedule.
    The workers of the construction site of the Ryesonggang Hydro-power Station have done the earthen dam project 95 percent and are putting the finishing touch to the construction of the generating room and the assembling of turbines Nos. 1 and 2.
    They have finished the assembling of cylinder for turbines and guide wing and the installment of the waterproof door.
    Innovations are taking place at the construction site of the Kumyagang Hydro-power Station, too. The workers there doubled the speed of concrete tamping that in the corresponding period of last year. In recent they have built the dam ten meters higher, carrying on the projects of building the generating room and retaining wall on the left bank in the downstream and the sluiceway project.
    Besides, many minor hydro-power stations are being dynamically built in different parts of the country to make an effective use of stream water.
