The Refurbishment Project in Micronesia was completed

On June 16th 2014, the refurbishment of Micronesia's Nanpil Station was completed and connected to the grid. As the general contractor, ICSHP attended the whole construction. This project is one of the renewable energy development projects in Pohnpei state undertaken by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC).

The Nanpil Hydro Power Station locates at approximately 3 miles south of Pohnpei's capital, Kolonia. It was installed in 1986 and started operation in 1987. The system consists of two horizontal Francis turbine configurations with rating of 1.335 MW and 0.725 MW. The hydro operation was disrupted in 2003 due to heavy flooding that damaged the switchgear compartment and other control equipment Some damaged electrical equipment were refurbished in 2008 but the system was soon faced with other techni-cal problems such as excessive vibration and system controls when it resumed operation. Since then, the hydro plants have not been in operation.

In 2013, SPC has secured funds under the North REP for the Nanpil Hydro Power Station refurbishment as part of the Northern Pacific countries RE development projects. The aim was to change present energy consumption pattern of Micronesia that just depended on the diesel. ICSHP won the bidding in August, 2013 and started the construction in this March. The refurbishment included the renewal of equipments and renovation of the forebay and powerhouse. In June, the project was finished and the station connected to the grid.
