A mini-hydropower plant will appear in Madagascar
Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation intends to build a mini-hydropower plant (HPP) produced by the Hungarian company «Ganz EEM» in Madagascar. In the near future, Rosatom plans to sign a contract for the supply of a plant with a capacity of 2 MW in South Africa.
Low cost of power generation and site preparation, compactness of equipment and its quick installation are the main advantages of the mini-HPP. The production of electricity may be started within one month from the date of components delivery. It is important that the mini-HPP installation does not require the dams construction.
The «Ganz EEM» owner is the Hungarian company Hansz Holding (49%), the majority shareholder is the Russian company Atomenergomash (51%).
The Hungarian-Russian joint venture, established in 2008, produces pumps, hydraulic turbines, equipment for nuclear power plants and the oil industry. «Ganz EEM» has developed a prototype of a mini-hydropower plant as part of a hydro turbine generator and control unit in 2013. Mini-HPP has remote control via satellite communication.
