Indian manufacturer Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has completed the rehabilitation and modernization of Tajikistan's 9.5-MW Varjob micro hydro plant.

The Varjob mini hydro project -- owned by Tajikistan's national power company, Barqi Tojik, previously included a pair of 3.67 MW turbine units. BHEL replaced those with two 4.75 MW units as part of the renovation, modernization and upgrade contract that was funded by the Indian government.

Varjob's first new unit was commissioned in November 2012, with the second being officially inaugurated during a ceremony earlier this week.

"The successful completion of this project by BHEL will help in strengthening business relations between India and Tajikistan and open a new market for India in Tajikistan," the New Delhi-based company said in a statement.

BHEL said it currently holds contracts to supply equipment for about 26,000 MW of hydroelectric power -- 5,000 MW of which are for sources outside India.
