The K500 million Edevu hydro power project at Brown River in the Kairuku-Hiri district of Central Province is expected to be completed at the end of 2020. Two Chinese hydro power construction companies (the China Gezhouba Group Corporation and East Vision Group of China) are backing up the project after being stalled for almost a year since its launching in 2017.

According to the initiator and project developer, PNG Hydro Power Limited managing director Allan Gua, the project had been stalled while waiting for the State to guarantee trust and confidence to financiers of the project.

The initial part of the project, which is the diversion tunnel, has been completed and was commissioned on Monday to pave way for the developers to build the 70m hydro dam. According to technical persons on the ground, the tunnel is 500 meters long where the river (the Brown River) will be channeled through when the power turbines are set.

The hydro will be producing 50 megawatts coming from two power hydro machines that will be set up to produce 25 megawatts each.
