Sinomach CMEC powers Pakistan's growth through hydropower project



In the picturesque landscapes of Pakistan, the Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project stands tall as a testament to engineering prowess and community development. Executed by Sinomach subsidiary China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC), this endeavor has not only added 5.15 billion kilowatt-hours annually to the local power grid but has also been a catalyst for addressing power shortages, contributing a noteworthy 12 percent to the region's hydroelectric power.

Overcoming Geological Challenges

Constructed in challenging geological conditions, the project encountered numerous obstacles that demanded ingenuity and perseverance from the dedicated project team. Notably, they achieved a remarkable feat with "NJ Speed," setting a record by delivering one unit per month—a testament to their efficiency and determination.

Local Workforce Empowerment

A driving force behind the project's success was the employment of nearly 10,000 local workers, who not only played a pivotal role in the construction but also benefited from skills training programs. This initiative not only boosted the region's economy but significantly enhanced the local talent pool, leaving a lasting impact on the community.

Community Investment

Understanding the importance of giving back, the project team went beyond the construction site and built a school for the local community. This not only contributed to the educational infrastructure but also highlighted a commitment to holistic development and sustainable growth.

The Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project, an exemplary collaboration between Sinomach CMEC and the local community, serves as a beacon of success in the realm of hydropower. Overcoming geological challenges, empowering the local workforce, and investing in community infrastructure, the project stands as a shining example of how sustainable development can be achieved through strategic initiatives and a commitment to progress.
