Pyongyang, May 5 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, gave field guidance to Kumyagang Power Station No. 2 on Saturday.

After being briefed on the circumstances of the construction of the power station and its situation, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un looked round several parts of the power station including the dam and a generating room, learning in detail about the construction, technical equipment and power generation.

It is admirable that Kumya County is set to build power stations by its own efforts and put the power production on a normal footing in hearty response to the Party's policy on building minor hydraulic power stations suited to the specific local conditions and settling the power problem, he said, speaking highly of the praiseworthy feats performed by the people in the county who created the treasure of national value in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and fortitude.

He said that there are not a few examples in which cities and counties fall short of getting benefits from minor power stations due to water shortage that led to failure to ensure capacity generation of electricity even though they were built at the cost of massive building materials because the construction was not based on accurate survey of hydraulic resources in the specific areas and on scientific calculation of the amount of electricity generation.

If Kumyagang Power Station No. 2 installs thousands of kW power generator as planned and produces electricity at full capacity, it will please the people as it can fully supply power to residential areas, to say nothing of the industrial factories and co-op farms in the county, he said, repeatedly praising the indomitable fighting spirit displayed by the officials and working people of Kumya County in which they provided an important boon for the wealthy economic life of the county with strenuous efforts.

Noting that he would feel relieved only when he does something to help the people in Kumya County who did a big thing without being known to others, he promised to send generator and transformers without fail, which have not yet been installed at Kumyagang Power Station No. 2, on his own responsibility.

He gave warm encouragement, hoping that Kumya County would ensure the good operation of the power station, a great treasure, to make the people substantially benefit from it and to contribute to the development of county industry and improvement of the people's living and thus prosper as a beautiful county good to live in and develop with vitality.

He was accompanied by officials of the Party Central Committee including Kim Phyong Hae, O Su Yong, Jo Yong Won, Kim Yong Su and Ri Yong Sik. -0-
