On September 18, the No. 5 handover certificate (for the last unit) of Neelum Jhelum (NJ) Hydropower Station in Pakistan undertaken by CGGC was successfully signed, indicating the successful and complete handover of the main project of NJ Hydropower Station.

Located in Kashmir of Pakistan, NJ Hydropower Station is a long tunnel and run-of-river power station, with the diversion tunnel measuring 28.6km, working head of 420m and total installed capacity of 969MW comprising 4 water-turbine units.

Commenced in January 2008, the Project has had its main civil works and 3 generation units handed over to the owner and 720h operation stability test of the last unit (Unit #1) completed as of December 28, 2018. On March 29, 2019, 4 generation units have been put into operation at full load as the river discharge increases, increasing its generated output to the rate power of 969MW. As designed, the Project will generate a total of 4.6 billion kWh of power annually.

After 10 years of hard work, CGGC has successfully overcome successive world-class challenges as extra-long tunneling, extra-deep shaft excavation and extra-large powerhouse construction under high depth, great convergence, great seepage and other geological conditions, as well as other difficulties like super-large flood, mass uprising, tunnel water gushing and TBM rock bursting, making it a model project of the industry.

The commissioning and operation of NJ Hydropower Station bring great political, social and economic benefits to the Pakistani Government and further strengthen the Pakistani Government’s confidence in developing the Indus River Valley. Backed by NJ Hydropower Station, CGGC has realized rolling development in Pakistan and further enhanced its brand image there.
