Mar 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka's private mini power generator Viddullanka PLC will commission the completed 6.5MW mini hydro power plant in Uganda next week.

The company said in a Colombo Stock Exchange filing that it has successfully completed the construction of the 6.5 megawatt Muvumbe small hydro power plant located in Kabale District of Uganda.

The plant is expected to be commissioned to the East African state's national grid next week after a joint testing by the relevant authorities. The Project is expected to annually supply 31.42 Gwh electrical energy to the national grid of Uganda.

Vidullank PLC's subsidiary, Muvumbe Hydro (U) Limited entered into Power Purchase Agreement with Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Ltd (UETCL) on 28 July 2015 to sell the generated power to the national grid for a period of 20 years commencing from the date of commissioning of the power plant to the national grid.

Muvumbe SHPP is the initial foreign project of Vidullank PLC's journey towards diversification. The company is also exploring further opportunities in Africa.
