China Gezhouba Group Corporation (CGGC) and Voith Hydro Shanghai Ltd
(VHS) have entered into an equipment supply contract (signed in Beijing) under which VHS will supply four 200MW Francis turbine generator units and online monitoring systems for the Mohmand Dam hydropower plant in Pakistan.
A consortium of China Gezhouba Group Co Ltd (a subsidiary of Energy China), and Descon Power Solutions (of Pakistan) won the construction contract for the Mohmand Dam hydropower project in Pakistan. According to the schedule, the first unit will be commissioned in 2025 and all units will be in commercial operation in 2026.
At the project’s ground-breaking ceremony, Pakistan’s premier Imran Khan said: “The Mohmand hydropower plant has been a dream project for years of both the Pakistan government and the people. The construction is of great significance. Once completed, the project will help mitigate flood disasters, enhance food safety, alleviate power shortage and further drive Pakistan’s social and economic development.”
The Mohmand Dam hydropower plant is situated in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan and is designed for a total capacity of 800MW. The project will create about 6,000 jobs for Pakistan at the peak period of construction and generate an annual average of 2,862GWh of clean power at full operation.
In addition, the project will provide 140 million m3
of drinking water a year and an annual revenue of about 320 million euros.
