Afghans name Russian firm to rehab 100-MW Naghlu

The government of Afghanistan has awarded a US$30.7 million contract to Technoprom Export Russia to refurbish the 100-MW Naghlu hydroelectric project.

The contract, to require between 800 and 1,200 days, includes supply and installation for extensive refurbishment of Naghlu’s four 25-MW turbines, generators, valves, and control, regulation, and protection equipment.

Technoprom was chosen in competition with Sino Hydro China and Farab Co. of Iran, whose bids were declared technically non-responsive.

Naghlu was built in 1967, with assistance from the Soviet Union, 50 miles east of Kabul on the Kabul River. The Afghan government received a credit for emergency power rehabilitation from the World Bank’s International Development Association.
