Nam Leuk dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant was completed and started operation in 2000. The power plant has an installed capacity of 60 MW. In 2016, the Dam Owner EDLGen has selected the use of Fusegates® in order to increase the storage capacity of the dam by 14.3 Mm³ (+ 8%), thus increase the rate of power generation. Two different types of Fusegates®, straight & labyrinth, have been retrofitted on both the main and the auxiliary spillways.
