    KP hydel projects to generate 55MW by December: Khattak


    Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has said that the provincial government is focusing on hydel power generation, developing viable alternative energy resources, establishment of oil refinery through public-private partnership (PPP) and developing community driven micro hydel projects and energy conservation programmes to overcome power loadshedding and usher economic development in the province.

    Several hydel power projects are in progress and will generate 55-megawatt electricity till December, 2015, 61 megawatt till December, 2018 and 153 megawatt will be generated till December, 2019.

    Under the initiative, Machai Hydel Power Project with production capacity of 17MW megawatt Mardan will completed by the end of the next month, 36 megawatt Daral Khwar by end of December 2015 while technical and financial bids for 69 megawatt Lawi (Chitral) and 84 megawatt Matiltan (Swat) are in progress. The technical bids for both projects were opened in February 2015 while financial bids by end of April 2015.

    Similarly, three hydel projects including 31 megawatt Koto (Dir Lower), Jabori 7 megawatt Mansehra and Karora 10 megawatt Shangla have been approved by the Executive Committee of National Economic Council (ECNEC) and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract awarded and is now ready for inauguration and will complete by June, 2018.

    KP government sets target of producing 4000 megawatts hydel power


    Reiterating the PTI-led provincial government resolve for achieving self-sufficiency in electricity production and overcoming the prevailing power crisis in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Chief Minister Pervez Khattak revealed that the provincial government has fixed a target of 4000 Megawatt hydro power production in the province by exploiting the rich water resources of Northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

    He urged the federal government to support Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government for generating cheap electricity from hydel resources of the province instead of using oil and coal for this purpose which costs much heavier then natural water inputs, he added. He said that unprecedented corrupt practices involved in the power generation through IPPs may be undermined if the federal government opts for producing electricity by exploiting the rich hydel resources of the province. He, however, regretted that the federal government was paying no heed to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government's hue and cry in this connection.

    Speaking at ground breaking ceremony of 40.8 MW Koto Hydro power project near Timergara, district Lower Dir on Saturday, Pervez Khattak told that KP government would complete 356 micro hydro power projects of 35 MW electricity generation within one year in northern areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He said that the electricity to be generated through these projects would be made available for the local communities on much cheaper price.

    The Chairman Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf, Imran Khan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Finance Minister, Muzzaffar Said, and Education and Power Minister, Muhammad Atif also addressed the ceremony.

    Koto Hydropower project will be completed in four years at a cost of Rs 14.76 billion and all financial resources for the project would be provided by the provincial government. On completion the project will generate annual revenue of 1.97 billion rupees.
    Chief Minister Pervez Khattak said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government was seriously considering the power generation projects from its own resources under the power emergency action plan as it was fully convinced that overcoming the power outages was impossible without producing more electricity on priority basis. He said that people of the country were unable to afford heavy priced electricity and that's why was following the strategy of producing cheap electricity by exploiting the available water resources.

    Explaining difference between the present PTI and previous governments, Chief Minister said that the present PTI government was striving for changing the system for ensuring provision of rights and justice to the poor and common people of the province adding that any corrupt system cannot provide self-respect of the poor and down trodden people.

    He said that the powers at every level were being devolved at the lower level and the government's services institutions like health, education and industries were being made autonomous to enable them to solve their problems by themselves.

    So while government with heavy mandate to end loadshedding in Pakistan is closing existing power projects, PTI is implementing even more? What a farce Nooney Tunes have become! :hitwall:

    Maybe we should change its name to Sabz Bagh under Noora domain. :omghaha:

    @Armstrong Sadly Kalabaagh has become a tragedy.

    Its seems there isn't much political will now to go ahead with this project, no one talks about it now so we can consider that the project is effectively dead.. :cry:

    Current KP govt showed interest to allow Kalabaagh dam if their provincial concerns are addressed. But like I've said above, lake of interest was shown by all parties involved.

    No objection if KBD doesn’t submerge KP cities: Khattak

    This dam gets more objections from Sindhis as they claim they will receive little to no water if the dam was built. :rofl:

    Jazzy Bhai you know as well as I that the interest shown by the current KP Government was 'kaaam na karneiii waliii baaat' just like their plans for a Hazara Sooba fizzled out into nothing.

    PTI's government in KPK is far from the model government I came to expect of them and even the party itself is in a mess (the recent apologies and No apologies over the 35 puncture saga is indicative of that).

    And yet PTI is the only party any self-respecting Pakistani can vote for because its the BEST of the WORST !

    Apparently metros solve all problems.
    Overall a great news, this is the way to go. Small dams have many advantages, water storage will help. I hope these projects do get finished in time.

    What these sindhi illiterates do not understand is that all river water must eventually "flow" through the dam to generate electricity. It would in turn prevent floods during raining seasons. Its basic science which they have no collective IQ to understand. :crazy:

    Its their first EVER government. What you should expect greatness is from Tajar Bakar teams of PPP and PMLN, and give PTI a chance to fulfil its term before criticizing. :azn:

    As always, I have several reservations on your post. But lets leave it here and avoid derailing the thread just for the sake of it.

    Our entire nation of Norway runs on 100's of small hydel projects. We do not have one or two mega dams, rather for a population of just 5 million, we have hundreds of dams spread across the country:
