Chinese engineers installed a shaft pan in the Sukki Kinari hydropower project with a capacity of 884 megawatts. The installation is expected to support water preservation and power generation.
According to the details, the pan shaft has an important role in generating electricity by converting energy from an outflow between the upstream water and downstream water. The system comprises a vertical shaft, the shaft crown of which forms an inlet level that is essentially parallel to the bottom and which below the water level of the upper water runs.
Under Construction Suki Kinari Hydropower Project-884MW Shaft 234m deep double chamber surge shaft which is being constructed to neutralise the hammering effect of water due to the sudden shutdown of generating units last year.
90 percent work of the Sukki Kinari hydropower project has been completed while the installation of the heavy transmission line is in progress at a rapid pace.
