ISLAMABAD – The Karot Hydropower Project will start its commercial operation by first half of the year 2022 as around 95 percent work of the project had been completed, according to official sources in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority.

Recently, the Karot Hydropower Project, which is a major project under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), successfully closed the gates of the diversion tunnels, starting reservoir impoundment. The project has been invested by the China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG) with a total value of about $1.74 billion.

The Karot hydropower project in Punjab province is the fourth level of the five cascade hydropower stations planned for the Jhelum River. The beginning of the reservoir impoundment of the first CPEC hydropower project is a milestone and will pave the way for the wet testing of the generator units.

Since the groundbreaking of the project in April, 2015, the Chinese and Pakistani engineers and workers at the project have jointly overcome different challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic, thus a series of achievements have been made such as the river closure and lifting of the first rotor.

The sources said that the start of reservoir impoundment is hard-earned fruit by the mutual support between the Pakistani and Chinese workers. The forthcoming commercial operation of the hydropower station project, which has provided over 4,000 jobs for the locals during the peak time of its constriction, will further address the electricity shortage issues in Pakistan with cheap and clean energy and improve the energy structure of the country.

NA Standing Committee on PD, SI visits Mohmand Dam to review progress on project
Project’s 1st unit to be commissioned in December 2025,


The delegation was briefed that Mohmand Dam is the 5th highest concrete-face-rock-fill Dam (CFRD) in the world. Construction work on as many as 13 sites is simultaneously underway on the project. These sites include diversion tunnels, power intake and power waterway, spillway, re-regulation pond, left bank irrigation tunnel, switchyard, power house, main dam abutment, access roads and project colony etc. This is a good omen for the project at a time when the whole world is adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, it was further briefed.

The delegation was informed that the first unit of the project will be commissioned in December 2025. On completion, the dam will store about 1.2-million-acre feet (MAF) of water and help mitigate floods in Peshawar, Charsadda and Naushera. Besides supplementing 160,000 acres of existing land, about 18,237 acres of new land will also be irrigated. Mohmand Dam Power House will generate 800 megawatt (MW) hydel electricity, contributing 2.86 billion units of low-cost and environment friendly hydel electricity annually to the National Grid.

In addition, 300 million gallons water per day will also be provided to Peshawar for drinking purpose. Annual benefits of the project have been estimated at Rs. 51.6 billion. It was further briefed that a hefty amount of Rs. 4.5 billion will be spent on Confidence Building Measures (CBM) in the project area for socio-economic development of the locals.

800MW Mohmand Dam – Construction of Diversion Tunnels


An important structure for construction of main dam, the total length of the Diversion Tunnel 1&2 is more than 3000m. Due to large diameter (15m), the excavation was divided into three layers (heading, benching & invert).

Both tunnels are being excavated from multiple work fronts and some sections breakthrough with each other.
