The plant's upper 206 MW station was put into operation in 2013 and includes a 124-meter-tall concrete-faced rockfill dam.

Meanwhile, the lower station, which has a capacity of 132 MW, includes a 58.5-meter-tall roller-compacted concrete gravity dam.

Russei Chrum Krom's upper and lower plants are located approximately eight kilometers from each other.
