New supply contract for 24 MW hydropower plant in Lao PDR

We have been awarded a new supply contract for three 8 MW Gamesa Electric synchronous hydro generators for Houay Kaouane HPP located in Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR).

Due to a high average annual precipitation and hilly terrain, Lao PDR has a theoretical hydropower potential of 26.5 GW, which makes the country one the richest in south-east Asia in terms of hydropower resources.

Gamesa Electric will help on the development of  this new 24 MW project with the supply of three 8 MW Gamesa Electric synchronous hydro generators.

This is not our first collaboration with this client. We have worked together previously in 16 previous hydropower projects in 10 countries, for a total supplied of 480 MW together.
