In September construction of HPP Chaparral (El Salvador) was continued after delay caused by spring flood.

Now specialists of JSC TYAZHMASH jointly with specialists of EuroSibEnergo Engineering Company are finishing installation works in the turbine pit. Embedded parts of the first and second units — suction pipe elbow and cone — will be concreted soon. The spiral chamber and stator will be installed soon as well.

Mounting of the third (auxiliary) turbine is being prepared. Last spring the turbine successfully passed tests and was accepted by representatives of the Customer.

In addition to commissioning of power units of the main hydroelectric power plant, JSC TYAZHMASH will execute supply of equipment for the Chaparral substation, extension of the existing substation 15 Sentyabrya, and commissioning of the new power transmission line.
