The Ministry of Water & Power reassigned the project to Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) to carry out detailed engineering design and construction work.
In March 2000, the initial feasibility study on the project was completed.
On November 23, 2010, the GoP received expressions of interest (EoI) for detailed engineering design and preparation of tender documents from nine firms, of which five were shortlisted and RFPs were issued.
On June 15, 2011, technical and financial proposals from shortlisted firms for detailed engineering design and preparation of tender documents were invited.
In August 2011, a consortium of consulting firms comprising SMEC Australia (Australia), Nippon Koei (NK) (Japan) and National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK)-Associated Consulting Engineers (ACE) (Pakistan) were finalized as the detailed engineering design consultants for the project. The consultancy contract agreement for consultancy services was signed on February 16, 2012.
On April 2, 2014, French Development Agency (AFD) granted funding for the project under Credit Facility Agreements (CFAs) signed with government, out of which the project received US$14.7 million funding for preparation of detailed engineering design for the project.
On July 15, 2015, the project secured approval from Central Development Working Party (CDWP) for the construction.
In August 2015, The Planning Commission of Pakistan has decided to issue authorization letter to SMEC for carrying out detailed engineering design study (DEDS) of the project.
