The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) is planning to construct a hydroelectric power plant on Indus River in Besham Qila, Pakistan.
The project involves the construction of a 2,400MW hydroelectric power plant on 786ha of land. It will include the construction of a 104m high dam, 150m gross head, a reservoir, a powerhouse, substations, vertical shafts, access shafts, a 18km tunnel, access road and related infrastructural facilities, the installation of eight Francis turbines, transformers and generators, and the laying of transmission lines.
The dam will be located at the junction of two rock formations, however, the contact of the two rock formations passes through the tunnel outlet area. The contact point intersects with the main access tunnel and diversion tunnel near the outlet end.
On September 17, 2009, Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PC-II) for the project was approved by the Central Development Working Party (CDWP).
On August 16, 2011, request for proposal (RFP) documents for preparation of feasibility study were issued to six shortlisted firms with November 18, 2011 as submission deadline.
In October 2012, four firms submitted technical and financial proposals to undertake feasibility study for the project.
On May 10, 2013, WAPDA granted approval for engagement of a joint venture comprising of Lahmeyer International (Lahmeyer) as lead firm with National Development Consultants Pvt. Ltd (NDC) and Pakistan Engineering Services (PES) as consultants to provide feasibility study for the project.
Contract agreement between Lahmeyer and WAPDA was signed on June 7, 2013 with commencement date of services on June 24, 2013.
Dam area topographic survey has been completed. Topographic survey for powerhouse and tailrace would be carried out by T&M Division of WAPDA. Bathymetric survey in reservoir area and sediment sampling has been carried out by ISRIP WAPDA.
In November 2013, Lahmeyer submitted draft inception report to WAPDA and received comments to incorporate major changes in the project.
On November 16, 2013, Lahmeyer made presentation to WAPDA on Inception Report and later submitted technical memorandum on “Alternative Project Layout”.
In May 2017, Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between China and Pakistan for the funding of US$50 million for hydro projects in Pakistan.
The project involves the construction of a 2,400MW hydroelectric power plant on 786ha of land on Indus River in Besham Qila, Pakistan.
The US$4,200 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a 104m high dam
2. Construction of 150m gross head
3. Construction of a reservoir
4. Construction of a powerhouse
5. Construction of concrete dam to avoid floods
6. Construction of an 18km tunnel
7. Construction of vertical shafts and access shafts
