Neelum-Jhelum to resume power generation from July

Khaleeq Kiani
March 31, 2023

The 969-megawatt Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project would get back to power generation by July after a year-long closure due to tunnel collapse and K-Electric (KE) is entering into a 10-year agreement with the federal government for enhancing its intake from national grid to 2,600MW.

These were the upshot of the two separate public hearings on increase in fuel charges for the consumers of KE and ex-Wapda Distribution Companies (Discos) conducted by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Thursday but could not reach a conclusive decision.

During the discussion on expensive power generation, Nepra Chairman Tauseef H. Farooqui said the Neelum-Jhelum Hydropower Project was expected to come back into production in July — almost a year after it was abruptly closed because of tunnel collapse.

Representatives of the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) told the hearing that the power generation cost was higher than the reference cost due to the lower availability of hydropower generation as the 969-MW plan remained closed..

Fire breaks out at Dasu dam camp​

Police said blaze ruined a warehouse complex for the Dasu hydropower project in the Kohistan district

April 05, 2023

A fire ripped through the camp of a Chinese company managing the construction of a remote hydropower dam in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on Tuesday, officials said.

Since 2015, Beijing has poured billions of dollars into Pakistan under an investment scheme known as the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Private firms have also flooded over the border to service contracts on ambitious infrastructure projects, despite persistent threats from terrorist attacks.

Police said on Tuesday’s pre-dawn blaze ruined a warehouse complex for the Dasu hydropower project in the Kohistan district.

"It was a huge fire," a Rescue 1122 official at the site told AFP. "Initially, the flames were very high and we had to call for fire brigade vehicles from two other districts."

"It was quite a big storehouse, and apart from oil drums, stationery and machinery were also stockpiled there. That's all been destroyed in the fire," he added.

In 2017, the water ministry awarded the construction contract for the Dasu dam to the China Gezhouba Group Company.

The camp housed Chinese engineers, surveyors and mechanics, but both police and Rescue 1122 said none were injured or killed.

One police official said an electrical fault was the suspected cause of the fire.

In July 2021, 12 people -- including nine Chinese workers -- were killed aboard a bus carrying staff to the Dasu site, with Beijing insisting it was a bomb attack.
272-meter high Diamer Basha Dam is highest under-construction Roller-Compact-Concrete dam in world.

Multi-purpose project will store 8.1 million acre feet (MAF), supplies to irrigate 1.23 million acre (MA). it will also generate 4500MW.
