Pyongyang, September 18 (KCNA) -- Kangwon Province of the DPRK pushes ahead with the construction of several army-people power stations.

Officials and working people in the province have stepped up the project without interruption by concentrating manpower and means.

Builders of the Kosong Army-People Power Station are accelerating the concrete tamping and the construction of spillway and waterway tunnels in a three-dimensional way.

Those of the Hoeyang Army-People Power Station are carrying out such various projects as the construction of intake tower and the piling of earth as required by the design.
