The Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda) has awarded the contract of the construction of the Diamer-Bhasha dam to a joint venture between Power China and Frontier Works Organisation (FWO), WAPDA Chairman Lt Gen (retired) Muzammil Hussain said on Wednesday.

The move comes in the wake of a meeting presided over by Prime Minister Imran Khan two days prior about water security and construction of the mega dams.

Hussain said that the contract for the construction of the main dam was worth Rs442bn and includes the construction of the main dam, a diversion system, access bridge, and a 21MW hydropower plant in Tangir.

Diamer-Basha dam Chief Executive Officer Amir Bashir Chaudhry and authorised representative Yang Jiandu signed the agreement on behalf of WAPDA and the joint venture, respectively.

Speaking on the occasion, WAPDA Chairman Lt Gen Muzammil Hussain (Retd) said that the dam will go a long way for the economic development and social uplift of the country.

He said that WAPDA is committed to completing the mega project in accordance with the stipulated time frame to cope with the increasing water and electricity requirements of the country.

The WAPDA CEO said that the Diamer-Bhasha project's value was estimated at around Rs1,406.5bn and will complete in 2028.

Hussain said that the dam will be able to store 8.1 million acre-feet (MAF) of water and will be able to produce 4,500MW of electricity.

The dam will be able to provide the national grid 18 billion units of electricity annually.

Hussain said that earlier a consultancy service contract had also been awarded to the Diamer Basha Consultants Group (DBCG) worth Rs27.18 bn.

The consultancy agreement includes construction design, construction supervision and contract administration of the Diamer-Basha dam project.

The Joint Venture DBCG comprises of 12 top-ranked national and foreign consulting firms namely NESPAK (Pakistan), Associate Consulting Engineers(Pakistan), Mott MacDonald Pakistan (Pakistan), Poyry (Switzerland), Montgomery Watson and Harza(MWH) International - Stantec (USA), Dolsar Engineering (Turkey), Mott McDonald International (England), China Water Resources Beifang Investigation, Design and Research Company (China), Mirza Associates Engineering Services (Pakistan), Al-Kasib Group of Engineering Services (Pakistan), Development Management Consultant (Pakistan) and MWH Pakistan (Pakistan) with NESPAK as the lead firm.

These firms have a vast experience of providing consultancy services for mega water projects the world over.

"The Diamer-Bhasha dam is a vital project for the water, food and energy supply in the country," said Faisal Vawda, the minister for water resources.

"Our government launched the construction of major dams like Mohmand and Diamer-Bhasha within one year," he said.

They need to open up these projects for private investors who can chip in with $1000 to $100,000 Investments. Build an online investment portal (linked to bank) where individuals can invest. See their investments and projected return on investments once project is complete. There are lot of people with extra change or saving sitting inside bank doing nothing.

Instead the of asking for charity, make them part of the project. Dams are pretty secure investments.

12,464MW electricity to be added to national grid through IPPs’ projects.

As many as 12,464 megawatts of electricity would be added to the national grid through 25 projects of Independent Power Producers (IPPs), which are in various stages of development.

Sources told APP that these projects were being facilitated by the Private Power Infrastructure Board (PPIB) and would be operationalised gradually between 2020 to 2028.

Giving the breakup, they said a 1,263MW RLNG project, being set up near Trimmu Barrage in Jhang, would be ready by 2020.

Similarly, five projects having an accumulative capacity of 2,047MW would be made operational in 2021. These include two 330MW Thar coal power plants, 660MW Thar coal power plant, 7.08MW Riali-II hydropower project and 720 Karot hydropower project.

Moreover, four projects with a total capacity of 2,160MW would be ready by 2022 and these would include 330MW Thar coal power plant, 1,320MW Thar coal power plant, 870MW Suki Kinari hydropower project and 300MW imported coal power plant.

Likewise, sources said 1,980MW would be added to the system through IPPs in 2023, 2,124MW in 2024, 1,172MW in 2026 and 1,710MW in 2028. The projects include 700MW Azad Pattan hydropower project, 1,124MW Kohala hydropower project, 300MW Ashkot hydropower project, 640MW Mahl hydropower project, 450MW Athmuqam hydropower project, 82MW Turtonas-Uzghor hydropower project, 163MW Grange Power Limited etc.

It is pertinent to mention that PPIB was created in 1994 as a “one-window facilitator” on behalf of the government to promote private investments in power sector. In 2012, PPIB was made a statutory organization through the Private Power and Infrastructure Board Act 2012 (Act VI of 2012).

That's a lot of excess power.... Already during summer months we have about 8-10GW more than what our system can supply. Just adding power plants without upgrading the transmission capacity is like using a 50hp pump to push water through a half inch line. Sure some will go through but you are wasting all that excess power you have available.

Totally agree. We lose so much of our energy because of these old transmission lines

Also we need to urgently modify the contracts which I believe is within our right to modify old and current IPP. Many have terms agreed upon by bribing during Bhutto khao and tubbar wadao time..
