Creators of Miracles in Construction

The service personnel of the Korean People’s Army have created miraculous construction speed in the years of building monumental structures for the people’s wellbeing under the slogan “Let us take upon ourselves both national defence and socialist construction!”

In 1960, the construction of the then February Vinalon Factory, the largest industrial project in the DPRK, went full steam ahead. The service personnel of the People’s Army seconded to the construction carried out in a short period of over one year the gigantic project of building over 30 production structures in the area of 500 000 square metres and assembling and installing a lot of machinery and equipment. In those days they created the “Vinalon speed”.

During the period of building the West Sea Barrage in the 1980s, they also created the “West Sea Barrage speed”, a new construction speed, by manufacturing by themselves many machines and equipment, including a 150-ton floating crane, and placing 21 000 cubic metres of concrete a day. The project to build a gigantic barrage with three lock chambers and 36 sluices on the 8-km-long rough sea was brought to completion in a matter of five years.

In 2009, the DPRK enlisted the whole Party, the entire army and all the people in the construction of Huichon Power Station. The service personnel of the People’s Army seconded to the construction carried out such difficult and labour-consuming projects as the building of the dam and the digging of waterway tunnels. They finished the construction of cofferdam in 50 days and formed a temporary drainage channel in three months. They pushed ahead with the removal of 3 600 cubic metres of earth daily on average for the ground-making and the concrete placing for the foundations at the same time. The construction speed created by the service personnel was named “Huichon speed”.

The Masikryong Ski Resort, which went into operation in December 2013, was also brought to completion by them. The soldier-builders removed over 1 000 cubic metres of earth and rubble stones and levelled rocks and rugged ridges every day since the beginning of the construction. As a result, beginners’, intermediate and advanced ski slopes were built on the ranges of Taehwa Peak (over 1 360 metres above the sea) in a short period of less than one year. Their brilliant feats of labour were designated as a new term “Masikryong speed”.

In recent years alone, they built the Jungphyong Vegetable Greenhouse Farm and Tree Nursery in Kyongsong County, North Hamgyong Province in a matter of over one year and the Yangdok Hot Spring Resort in South Phyongan Province in a short period of less than one year.
