President Emomali Rahmon of Tajikistan attended the historic closure of the Vakhsh River as part of the Rogun HPP Project. The President worked for over 90 minutes on a bulldozer to close the last section of the pre-cofferdam. Once he had closed it, he walked symbolically across to the other side. This heralds a new stage in the project.
The project in detail
The Rogun HPP Project includes the construction of a 335m embankment dam, a hydraulic tunnel for river diversion and water discharge, an underground power house with 6 units (6 x 600 MW), as well as the installation of the rest of the plant and auxiliary equipment.
Tractebel is the leader of a joint venture with ELC-Electroconsult (Italy), which is in charge of the technical assistance to the EPC contract plus the design review and ongoing works.
