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 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.
