The 10 megawatt Bhandardara Power House hydro plant in India’s Maharashtra State, was rehabilitated and reopened in 2001 by DLZ Corp., of Columbus, Ohio with the support of a $5 million loan. The plant, which was originally built by the local Maharashtra government, had been rendered inoperative after a fire in 1996.

DLZ, a civil engineering company, is one of the many American small businesses that have successfully expanded into developing markets around the world, with the support of OPIC. On March 14, OPIC traveled to DLZ’s home state to host the latest in its series of Expanding Horizons events in Cleveland. These seminars and workshops are designed to educate small businesses about the opportunities of investing in the developing world, and the ways that OPIC can support their efforts.
