    WAPDA inks contract for Keyal Khwar Hydropower Project

    The Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) and a joint venture comprising Sinohydro and Hajvairy Group signed a contract of civil works for Keyal Khwar Hydropower Project worth Rs 14.544 billion in WAPDA House on Friday.

    WAPDA Member (Water) Muhammad Shoaib Iqbal and General Manager Sinohydro Duan Jianxia signed the contract on behalf of WAPDA and the joint venture respectively.

    The signing ceremony was witnessed by WAPDA Member (Finance) Anwar-ul-Haq, senior officers of WAPDA and representatives of joint venture.

    WAPDA is constructing the 128 MW-Keyal Khwar Hydropower Project on a tributary of Indus River in Kohistan district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 310 kilometers from Islamabad. The project is scheduled to be completed in four years. On completion, Keyal Khwar will generate 418 million units of low-cost hydel electricity per annum.

    The project is being jointly funded by the European Investment Bank (EIP), the German Development Bank (KfW) and the government of Pakistan. The European Investment Bank and KfW are providing 100 million Euros and 97 million Euros respectively for the purpose.

    It is pertinent to mention that the ECNEC, in its meeting held on September 13, 2014, approved the revised PC-1 of the project with a rationalised cost of Rs 27.8 billion. The German Development Bank had also issued a no objection letter (NOL) to WAPDA for award of its civil works contract to the joint venture.

    The Project will take 4 years to complete, what about the power shortage the people of Pakistan are facing right now?
