The Multiconsult UK team commenced services in June 2007, which included preparation of tender documents, evaluation of bids, civil design and construction supervision.
During the course of the project the station output has been increased from 40 MW to 72 MW, by the addition of a new 24 MW Unit and the uprating and rehabilitation of the existing two units from 20 MW to 24 MW each. The project was achieved both on time and within budget thanks to the dedication of all involved in the Project. The value of the Contract for Consultant’s Services was £2.6 million.
