Afghanistan to sigh deal with China for Hydro plant

Afghanistan will soon sign a preliminary deal with China Gezhouba Group Co Ltd (CGGC) to build a 240 megawatt hydropower plant in the country, Ali Ahmad Osmani, energy minister said on Thursday.


CGGC could develop the Baghdra project, and is also interested in the second phase of the Sarobi hydropower plant, Ali Ahmad Osmani said during a visit to New Delhi where he is looking for partners for a 10 MW solar power project in Kandahar.

China earlier this year promised to help develop a 1,500 MW hydroelectric power plant dam on the Kunar River in Afghanistan, as it looks to take a more active role in the country.
