Alstom to supply hydropower turbine generators to Uganda’s largest electricity plant

Karuma electricity plant is the largest hydropower project in Uganda with a capacity of 600MW.

China-based Sinohydro has awarded Alstom a contract worth about €58 million to provide electro-mechanical equipment and technical services for Karuma Hydropower Project, Uganda’s largest electricity plant. This is Alstom’s third contract awarded by Sinohydro after successful cooperation of Bui hydropower project in Ghana and Soubre project in Côte d'lvoire. 

Alstom will provide six 100MW Francis turbine-generator sets and related equipment for this project. Alstom Hydro China (AHC) is responsible for the equipment design, manufacturing, supervision to the installation, commissioning, testing as well as site services.

Located along River Nile in the districts of Kiryadongo and Oyam, 15 km downstream Karuma falls, the Karuma electricity plant is the largest hydropower project in Uganda with a capacity of 600MW. Once this project is put into operation, it will provide 40% of power supply for Uganda, greatly contributing to the social and economic growth locally.
