Lankan engineers build power plant in Uganda


The installation of the largest hydro-power plant built by engineers of Sri Lanka in a foreign country was completed in Uganda recently.

This is situated 305 km away from Kampala, capital city of Uganda and has a 103 meter long tunnel and 3 turbines. The cost of this hydro-power plant is about US$ 30 million.

The operations of this plant started earlier in February. It was unveiled by Simon D'ujanga, Energy Minister of Uganda, and will add 18 MW to the Uganda’s national power grid.

About 200 Sri Lankans including engineers and skilled workers from Sri Lanka's VS Hydro (Pvt) Ltd. carried out the installation work.
