Karot hydropower plant installs rotor for its power unit NO.2

By Fatima Javed | Gwadar Pro
Aug 17, 2021


ISLAMABAD, Aug. 17 (Gwadar Pro) - Pakistani Karot hydropower plant, funded by China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG), completed the rotor installation for power unit No.2. The project has installed 4 hydraulic generators with a rated power of 180 MW.

Rotors have a diameter of 13.04 meters and a height of 1.84 meters, and the hoisting weight of a single rotor and lifting appliance reaches almost 700 tons.

The 700-ton rotor is the heaviest mechanical and electrical component for hoisting within the entire power unit. The power unit No.2 now enters the final assembly stage after the rotor was hoisted, laying a solid foundation for commissioning the hydropower plant on schedule.

Karot hydropower plant has an installed capacity of 720 MW and a total investment of more than $ 1.7 billion. Once completed, the dam will supply more than 3.2 billion kilowatt-hours of clean energy to the South Asian nation every year, which is expected to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 3.5 million tons per year.

The hydropower plant will boost Pakistan's energy industry, social and economic development and optimize its energy mix, contributing to the global goal of carbon neutrality.
