We have expanded our activities beyond Sri Lankan territory to cover the African region in 2005 and accordingly United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) awarded ENCO (Pvt) Ltd., One of the Associate companies of Hydro Power International (Pvt) Ltd. to construct a village hydro project in Rwanda, namely Nyamyotsi 1.

Trailed by the success of the Nyamyotsi 1 project, UNIDO awarded the second contract to ENCO (Pvt) Ltd. to construct three off-grid village hydropower projects, i.e. Mutubo, Gatubwe, and Nyamotsi II.

UNIDO awarded the third contact to ENCO to Supply Electricity for additional load centers, improving the de-silting capacities of the plants and implementation of antisoil-erosion methods at Mutubo, Gatubwe, and Nyamyotsi Plants. The work of this contract will be parallel to the work of the previous contract for the same three micro-hydro projects.

On the Invitation of MININFRA

Feasibility Study of Thin gan tone small hydropower project – Myanmar

ClientAtlum Power International Co. Ltd. – Myanmar  
Capacity6 MW  
Commissioned InMay 2018  

The feasibility study of Guinea Project was completed successfully and handed over by ENCO (Pvt) Ltd. This is also a project funded by UNIDO.

The proposed dam of the Hydro Power plant across Makona River is situated close to the village called “Keno” in the city called Gueckedou. The Makona River finally falls into the North Atlantic Ocean in “Sierra Leone”. The proposed site having coordinate of 8031’42.3” N & 10006’43.2” W situated at “Keno” village in the  “Gueckedou” City and could be reached driving 6km from East of Keno town Centre along a gravel road at Makona river. Considering the demand, location of energy and available drop of the river, this site was the most suitable location to have a low head hydropower plant, even though there were few steep slopes stretches at the most upstream…
