Hydropower Projects in Pakistan

108 MW-Golen Gol Hydropower Project’s construction work has been speeded in Islamabad. This has been done to make sure that hydropower projects are been executed as soon as possible. The project dedicated to Central Chitral has been through the test run process, which is expected to run from October 2017. This has been confirmed by the Chairman Pakistan Water and power Development Authority (WAPDA).

This project is running in the District Chitral of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where different sites of the project consisting of the weir (dam), powerhouse, diversion tunnel, and switchyard and transmission line have been reviewed for the construction work these days. With the accelerated completion of the hydropower projects that include Golen Gol, it is anticipated that people will get rid of power shortages in the country. In addition, completion of these projects will also ensure that there are lower tariffs for the electric consumers.

WAPDA has already been instructed to provide 30 MW of electric power to district Chitral. Chitral has been made the first priority because the hydel facility in Chitral got damaged in 2015 floods, after which, the region is deprived of their basic electricity needs.

So far, satisfaction has been shown to the civil works of Golen Gol Hydropower Project and so authorities are ordering to speed up the electro-mechanical works of the project. Timely completion of the transmission line is equally significant for the Golen Gol Hydropower Project after its completion so it could be added to the National Gird.
