Can see the images.
We need to see renewable power projects like Terawatt Solar farms, Terawatt wind farms and small water powered generators put in fast flowing streams and rivers. But cola power stations are better than the daily load shedding Pakistanis were suffering.
There was a problem at that time, Pictures disappeared after sometime,

On the morning of May 2, 2021, the rotor of Unit no.1 was successfully hoisted, achieving another major milestone for the Karot hydropower project.

With the joint efforts of all parties especially the electro-mechanical team who have worked day and night to make this happen.

The total weight of the rotor is about 700 tons, which was the heaviest hoisting component in the electro-mechanical equipment of the entire unit. The successful hoisting of the rotor marks that Unit no.1 has fully entered the final assembly stage, laying a solid foundation for the timely comprehension of commissioning goal and power generation from Karot Hydropower Station.

The construction activities were badly affected during COVID-19 pandemic. The project management team overcame the difficulties and continued the construction works of the project to put it into production and power generation according to the schedule.

The Karot hydropower project has a total installed capacity of 720 megawatts (MW), and a total investment of more than 1.7 billion US dollars. It is being developed by Karot Power Company Limited (KPCL), a special purpose-vehicle in which China Three Gorges South Asia Investment (CSAIL) holds a majority share. It is one of the priority projects of “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor” (CPEC). It is also the first project that was included in CPEC.

Once functional, it will provide Pakistan with more than 3.2 billion kilowatt-hours of clean energy every year, and it is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 3.5 million tons per year. While optimizing the energy structure and contributing to the global goal of “Carbon neutrality, it will promote Pakistan’s energy construction, social development and Economy.

The 720-megawatt Karot Hydropower Project was initially due to be completed in 2020.
It has the capability to generate 3.249 billion units of clean electricity per year for the national grid.

The project is being developed on a Build-Own-Operate and Transfer (BOOT) basis at an estimated cost of $1.98bn including a development cost of $1.698bn and interest during construction of $243m by Karot Power Company Private Ltd, comprising of M/s Three Gorges South Asia Investment Ltd (TGSAIL) and Associated Technologies (Pvt) Ltd of Pakistan.

The project is being constructed on a concrete gravity of 91 metres high dam with a crest length of 320 meters near the village of Gohra. The dam's reservoir will be approximately 152m cubic metres in volume, with a length of 27 kilometres. Around 72 homes and 58 businesses were expected to be relocated due to project construction while 2.8-km of the Karot-Kotli road and 8.9-km of the Azad Pattan-Kahuta road were expected to need relocation.

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) had approved in February 2016 the project's levelised tariff at 7.57 cents per unit for 30 years at an exchange rate of Rs101.6 per dollar. Its groundbreaking ceremony was held in January of that year.
