Pyongyang, January 26 (KCNA) -- All the officials and workers in the electric-power industrial sector, one of the key industrial sectors in the DPRK, have turned out in the struggle to carry out the important tasks set forth at the 8th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea.

The task facing the electric power industry is to readjust and reinforce its production foundations as a whole and expand them on a long-term basis while waging an increased production drive for meeting the immediate demand for electricity so as to reliably ensure the stable development of the national economy and the material and cultured living of the people.

The workers at the thermal power plants and hydro-power stations across the country are now striving to increase the production of electricity, the main power for the independent economy.

The thermal power plants have carried out their daily plan at 103 percent by raising the efficiency of generators and increasing the steam production while considerably reducing the heat loss.

The hydro-power stations have over-fulfilled their plan at 109 percent by maintaining high water level and efficiency operation. Minor hydraulic power stations in different parts of the country, too, raised the electric-power production 1.7 times by effectively using water.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Electric Power Industry is pushing ahead with the works to manufacture efficient water wheels, secure enough water in reservoirs and modernize the generating control devices at hydro-power stations and readjust the bad system of boilers and the turbo generators and raise the output of each generator at thermal power plants on an annual basis. -0-
