Small Hydro Project Rangjung, Bhutan

The Rangjung Small Hydro Plant located in the District of Trashigang (East Bhutan) is a project of the early rural electrification strategy of the RGOB. This strategy foresaw the electrification of the remote districts through decentralised small and mini hydropower plants and associated mini grids. The objective of the Rangjung SHP project was to stimulate economic and social development of remote Eastern Bhutan through electrification. This concept was in line with the general objectives of the Austrian Development Co-operation in Bhutan and the request for assistance in developing the Rangjung Small hydro Plant was therefore granted.
