PowerChina Huadong has contracted Entura to deliver hydropower advisory services for the 600-MW Karuma Hydropower Project.  The project, located in northern Uganda, includes a 314-meter long diversion weir fitted with radial gates, six shafts and associated power tunnels leading to an underground power house containing six 100-MW Francis turbines and two 8.6-km long tailrace tunnels.

When completed, the Karuma Hydropower plant will be the largest power station in the country.

PowerChina Huadong is the lead designer for the project and sister-company, SinoHydro, the EPC contractor. Entura will assist PowerChina Huadong with managing a range of project stakeholders, undertaking design reviews, and advising on compliance with international standards.

The Karuma Hydropower Project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
