The total investment of the project is over VND 1,952 billion, invested by Da Nhim - Ham Thuan - Da Mi Hydropower Joint Stock Company (under the Power Generation Corporation 1). In which, the loan accounts for 85% (from the Official Development Assistance Fund of the Japanese Government through the Japan International Cooperation Agency - JICA) and 15% comes from the reciprocal capital of the investor.

 According to the design, H5 Generator unit will additionally supply about 99 million kWh/year to the national power system and increase the total capacity of Da Nhim Hydropower Plant to 240MW at the same time.
