Birth of HPI in 1999


Achieving Maximum Factor Productivity


To Create Maximum Stakeholder Wealth through Ethical Investing and Entrepreneurial Intellectual Capacity Building.

Birth of Hydro Power International (Pvt) Ltd [HPI] in 1999

HPI was incorporated to handle grid-connected projects as project developers and EPC contractors. HPI was the business arm and ENCO (Pvt) Ltd. was the social entrepreneurship arm for us. This combination worked very well as our engineers and technicians employed under HPI worked in ENCO projects as their service to society without taking any allowance for their inputs.

HPI can be claimed as the founders of local mini-hydro in Sri Lanka with our own technology and innovations of turbines, Penstock pipe fabrication, Electronic Load Controllers for synchronizing, locally made panel boards and controllers, high level of welding standards, and good project management. With all these combinations of project management, we could complete the projects to the best satisfaction of our investing partners and banks to get a return on investment.

HPI expands itself day by day, year by year as a truly international company, extending its arms to the African continent.
