  • IBM provides software for Pakistan's New Bong hydropower project

    New Bong

    Tenage Nasional Bhd (TNB), builder of Pakistan's 84-MW New Bong hydroelectric plant, has selected IBM to provide automation software for the US$235 million project.

    TNB said IBM's (NYSE: IBM) asset management will be used to automate the New Bong's (2) manual systems to provide predictive maintenance, while also helping to meet increase resource demands.

    "IBM's solution will play a vital role in running the systems efficiently and helping to pave the way for rapid and full scale development of Pakistan's hydropower potential," TNB President Che Khalib said.

    The New Bong hydropower complex is located on the Jhelum River and will help satisfy Pakistan's growing need for energy which, according the country's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA), will increase to around 40,000 MW by the end of the decade.

    HydroWorld.com has previously reported that the power produced from the plant will be fed into the Pakistani grid under a 25-year power-purchase agreement with the country's National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC).
