Issue 296 - 12 Mar 2015 | 1 minute read
Sinohydro has given Alstom a contract worth about €58m ($77m) to provide electro-mechanical equipment and technical services for the 600MW Karuma hydropower project on the Victoria Nile. The French engineering giant said on 27 February that Alstom Hydro China would supply, install, test and commission six 100MW Francis turbine-generator sets and related equipment, and provide site services. The run-of-river project, which is to be located in the districts of Kiryadongo and Oyam, 15km downstream of the Karuma Falls in northern Uganda, is being developed by Sinohydro under an engineering, procurement and construction contract signed in June 2013.
