Upper Kotamale 80 % complete


Nearly 80 percent of the construction work of the Upper Kotamale Hydro Power Project has been completed.

Once completed, the plant will add 150 MW into the national grid, which will contribute 3.5% of the country’s total electricity requirement for the year 2012.

The installation of power generating machines is in progress. Machine parts have been imported from a Japanese company.

The machines are being installed under the supervision of the Japanese company which handles the contract.
