Develop Hydro Power with the most experienced operator and developer in Papua New Guinea
Operating both the oldest and the newest hydro power stations in the country, PNGFP Hydro is a major Independent Power Producer (IPP), operating three hydro power stations with a combined installed capacity of 14.9MW at Baiune near Bulolo. Our Lower Baiune power station has operated continuously since it was recommissioned in 1947 and still operates at nameplate capacity. PNGFP operates as the power supply authority in Bulolo, supplying power to local businesses and domestic consumers.
The Only IPP to Supply Hydro Power to PNG Power
Commissioned in January 2013, the 9.4MW Upper Baiune power station was built for the sole purpose of supplying power to the Ramu Grid, making it the only hydro power station built by an IPP for the sole purpose of supplying power to PNG Power. A fourth 11.4MW hydro power station is currently under development at Baime with a fifth station also in planning, to significantly increase our supply to PNG Power.
