Continuing our partnership with Enga Hydro Power Limited, SMEC has been appointed to deliver a feasibility study for the next phase of the approximately 18 MW Pilikambi Hydropower Project in Papua New Guinea. SMEC successfully delivered the pre-feasibility study for the project which identified its technical and financial viability, submitting the pre-feasibility study report in July 2019.
The Pilikambi Hydropower Project is located on the Lagaip River, near the Pilikambi Village. Once operational, the project will extend rural electrification in the Enga Province by replacing diesel generation with sustainable, renewable energy.
“The development of the project will ensure the availability of reliable renewable energy throughout the grid connected areas, particularly as the Enga Provincial government is constructing a new hospital and other government facilities in Wabag town,” said Tilak Battharai, SMEC Manager, Hydropower & Dams Southeast Asia. “Furthermore, the injection of 15–18 MW of power will strengthen the grid reliability between Wabag and Mt. Hagen.”
