Hydro Energy Projects

Fiji’s vast rivers and mountainous regions with  makes Hydro Energy the ideal renewable energy scheme. Below are the Hydro Electricity Schemes that FEA has successfully undertaken.

The Monasavu Hydro Scheme that was successfully commissioned in 1983 was the  first of it’s kind for Fiji. With a generating capacity of 80MW and an annual energy yield of 400GWh.

Wainisavulevu Weir is a component of the overall Monasavu Hydro-Electric Scheme. The Weir was constructed in 1984 and intercepts flow in Wainisavulevu Creek for diversion through a tunnel to the Wainikasou Power Station and on to the Monasavu Reservoir. The successful raising of the weir will add an additional 10GWh to the existing energy yield of 21GWh. Click for a brief of the Project and its current status

The Nadarivatu Hydro Scheme was commissioned in September 2012 with a power output of 40 MW and an annual energy yield of 101 GWh.
