Global technology manufacturer Andritz Hydro has received a contract to supply equipment for Pakistan’s 102-MW Gulpur hydroelectric plant.
The US$72 million deal, offered by contractor Daelim Lotte Joint Venture, calls for Andritz to supply electromechanical equipment, hydraulic steel structures, penstocks and control systems.
The company said each of the two turbine generator sets it will supply for Gulpur will be protected by its “SXH” coating due to the high sand content in the project’s waterway.
Gulpur is being developed by Mira Power Ltd. on the Poonch River.
HydroWorld.com reported last June that the International Finance Corporation had invested $50 million into the project, with the mobilization of an additional $72 million to “address the country’s power shortage, support lower cost energy generation, and help develop renewable energy sources.”
Mira Power and the Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK) government signed agreements for its construction last March.
MWH Global was selected to serve as owner’s engineer in September 2014.
