Compact Workshop in Pakistan, Hydro Vision International and Africa 2017
Compact Workshop Pakistan
Lahore - Pakistan has a huge hydropower potential that has barely been developed until today. However, the increasing demand for electrical energy, high dependence on imported oil, and the promotion of renewable sources of energy make the use of hydroelectric power very much the focus of an expanding energy mix. Expansion of small-scale hydropower is also an important factor here.
For the first time, at the end of 2016 ANDRITZ HYDRO organized a “Compact Workshop” in Pakistan to strengthen its position in this competitive market. At this workshop about 70 representatives from planning offices, investors, general contractors, and construction companies met in Lahore to exchange experiences and to keep themselves informed about the latest developments in the small hydropower market. One particular highlight was a lecture on special Compact Hydro low-head turbines, which can be used in existing irrigation channels.
The workshop was a complete success and supported the sales activities of ANDRITZ HYDRO in the promising market for small hydropower in Pakistan.
