Milestone on the Nurek Hydropower rehabilitation project

On October the 24th 2022, the Nurek Hydropower Rehabilitation Project reached an important milestone during Phase I of the project. The first of three units to be rehabilitated during this phase was put into operation on by the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, H.E. Emomali Rahmon during an official ceremony.

The Nurek hydropower plant contains nine generating units commissioned between 1972 and 1979. After more than 50 years in service, the facility was operating below its design capacity due to ageing equipment. Owned and operated by OSHC Barqi Tojik, Nurek is a strategically important power station that accounts for more than 50% of Tajikistan’s total power generation. Gruner Stucky Ltd is the Owner’s Engineer for the rehabilitation project.

Gruner Stucky Ltd would like to take the opportunity to congratulate and to thank all those involved that has led to the achievement of this milestone on such an important project.

The World Bank published a Press release on the passing of this project milestone as well.
