Daimer Bash Hydropower Dam
The project is located on Indus River, about 315 km upstream of Tarbela Dam, 165 km downstream of the Northern Area capital Gilgit and 40 km downstream of Chilas. The proposed dam would have a maximum height of 270 m, and imvpound a reservoir of about 7,500,000 acre feet (9.25×109 m3), with live storage of more than 6,400,000 acre feet (7.89×109 m3). Mean annual discharge of Indus River at the site is 50,000,000 acre feet (6.2×1010 m3). Thus the dam will impound 15% of the annual river flow. The dam project would cover an area of 110 km2 and extend 100 km upstream of the damsite up to Raikot Bridge on Karakoram Highway (KKH).
Mohamand Hydropower Dam
The Mohmand reservoir will generate 740 MW of hydroelectricity, store 1.290 Million acre-feet (MAF) of water for irrigating 15,100 acres of land and control floods downstream, and would mitigate floods risks in Peshawar, Charsadda and Nowshera.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan’s (SCP) judgment for early commencement of the project, a number of options were considered to initiate its construction during the fiscal year 2018-19, and WAPDA, in this regard, has already completed its feasibility study, developed engineering designs and tendered documents.
