Developer submits plans for Pakistani small hydro projects

Pakistan Flag

Pakistan’s National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has received two applications that, if approved, would allow for the construction of two new small hydroelectric projects in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The applications were submitted by the Pakhtunkhwa Hydel Development Organization (PHYDO) and outline details of a 2.6 MW project in the Mardan district and a 17 MW plant in Kohistan. The proposed plants would have a combined price tag around US$63 million.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa -- located in Pakistan’s northwest -- is a hotbed of hydroelectric activity, with the Tarbela and Warsak projects already located within the province. As much as 6,000 MW of additional hydro power could eventually be added, according to the Sarhad Hydel Development Organization.
