Project Detail

 

Xacbal is a 100 MW power plant, commissioned in 2010, with an annual production of 480 GWh.

The SediCon Dredge called “Rana” (Frog) of 355 mm was supplied to remove the deposited sediments in the 750,000 m3 and 25 m depth reservoir.

Implementation: The SediCon Dredge was installed, tested and commissioned in November, 2018.

Results: The gravity powered hydrosuction dredge was tested after installation. Sediment deposits were removed at an average rate of more than 95 m3 per hour, which is more than what was agreed in the contract.
