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.”
