Tha-Htay and Upper Keng Tawng HPP

Technical assistance for the Ministry of Electricity and Energy in Myanmar

Tha-Htay and Upper Keng Tawng HPP are two separate hydropower projects that are currently being designed and constructed by The Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) in Myanmar. Both projects have embankment dams (90 m and 60 m high, respectively), rock tunnels and shafts, and other associated hydraulic structures. MOEE required expert help related to all civil engineering aspects.

Multiconsult, in association with Norconsult, has provided services through the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) technical assistance program. A large part of the program was not only to provide technical assistance and expertise, but to also provide training to the Ministry staff in order to leave a positive legacy after completion of the project.

Scope of work

Multiconsult has provided technical assistance to the Ministry on the two on-going hydropower projects. Main areas where this assistance has been provided are on dam design, grouting design, tunnel design, shafts design, slope and excavation stability, spillway design and project planning.
