GE to refurbish hydropower Plant in Pakistan

GE announced today that it has been selected by Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) for the refurbishment of two hydropower units (9 & 10) at the Mangla hydropower plant in Pakistan. The scope of work includes the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the two hydro turbine and generator components.

Previously, GE has already been selected for the ongoing refurbishment of six other units (1 to 6) at the same site. The 100 MW units will be replaced by 135 MW units.

Mangla, which has 10 hydropower turbines and is one of the largest power plants in the country, is a 50 year-old hydropower plant producing 1 GW of renewable energy for Pakistan. As Pakistan’s electricity consumption is growing, the refurbishment work will extend the lifetime, the efficiency, and the capacity of the hydropower plant by 280 MW.
