Pyongyang, November 23 (KCNA) -- The construction of large and minor hydraulic power stations has made headway in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The Huichon Power Station is taking shape thanks to the painstaking effort of the constructors who have been encouraged by repeated field guidance of Kim Jong Il.

They have introduced daring construction methods in the dam project to bring about good results in concrete tamping.

They are also making a progress in waterway tunneling, tunnel-widening and concrete covering projects, the construction of generator room and the transmission line laying project.

The builders of Paektusan Songun Youth Power Station No. 1 have completed the construction of the generator room and floodgates, and iron pipe assembling and successfully finished the final damming up of a temporary waterway.

The builders of Orangchon Power Station No. 2 are concentrating on the tunnel-widening and concrete tamping projects.

After mainly finishing the foundation work of the dam's core wall in a year or little more, the builders of the Wonsan Army-Civilian Power Station are pushing ahead with all the projects in a three-dimensional way.

Meanwhile, the Yonha Power Station and some other minor power stations are nearing completion and scores of power stations are under construction in Jagang, South Hamgyong, Kangwon, Ryanggang and other provinces.
