As an important site of the project, the 500kV Parat Substation is an important part of the 500kV high-voltage transmission and transformation line network project in 10 provinces in north-central Laos. There are 3 main transformers with a total capacity of 750 MVA. After being completed and put into production, it will help Laos establish a large-capacity, high-efficiency cross-border power transmission channel, realize the strategic goal of building a "Southeast Asian battery", and serve to open up an efficient power transmission channel that runs through China, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Hand in hand on the road to economic recovery
In order to start production on schedule, the overseas construction team of China Southern Power Grid Guangxi Power Grid Company used various forms of inspection meetings at the end of the month and DingTalk to overcome the impact of the epidemic on a regular basis; adjusted and formulated construction plans reasonably to fight against Laos’s year-round hot and humid climate and prolonged rainy season , And applied mature Chinese construction technology and construction experience such as domestic tower pull line setting, laying of ground anchors and infrastructure safety "four steps", construction equipment "eight steps" to the construction site to ensure the steady and orderly progress of the project schedule.
"In Laos, you not only bring Chinese technical standards, Chinese equipment, and Chinese construction techniques, but you can also guarantee the quality and progress of construction during the epidemic. It is worthy of China's speed."

"Guangxi Power Transmission and Transformation Construction Company (GTSCC) has made great contributions to developing the local economy and improving the quality of life of the people. It will be remembered forever by the history of Xayaburi." The speed and quality of the power grid construction of the Power Transmission and Transformation Construction Company were fully affirmed, and it was also the first time that the company won a foreign government award.
