China’s Sinohydro will build a run-of-the-river hydropower plant in Chitral, KP to produce 82MWs, or 380 GWh of clean energy per annum at the cost of $200 million.
The Turtonas-Uzghor hydropower project will be executed by Uzghor Hydropower Pvt. Ltd., a consortium of China’s hydropower giant Sinohydro and Pakistan’s Sachal Group.
The project site is located five kilometres away from the existing 108MWs Golen Gol HPP on Golen Gol River, a tributary of Mastuj river in Pakistan’s north-most district of Chitral. Chitral is adjacent to Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region, which borders China, CEN reported.
