KONČAR – Generators and Motors Inc. (GIM) have signed a contract with North South Power Company Limited for the delivery of a large amount of spare parts for the generators installed in the Shiroro hydro power plant in Nigeria.
The Shiroro hydro power plant is located on the Kaduna river in Nigeria and has been in operation since 1990. The power plant consists of four 176,5 MVA, 16 kV, 150 rpm hydro generators and has the electricity generation capacity of 600 MW, which is sufficient to supply energy to 404,000 households. All four generators, along with the associated excitation systems and other electrical equipment, were manufactured and delivered by KONČAR.
Since 2000, GIM have continuously participated in the maintenance of the power plant by delivering spare parts, conducting inspections and controls. In the period from 2009 to 2014, three out of the four delivered hydro generators underwent refurbishment.
