The board for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s hydroelectric power development fund has approved five projects designated as priorities under the Pakistani province’s power development program.
Receiving financing are the 84-MW Matiltan, 69-MW Daral Khwar, 69-MW Lawi, 40.8-MW Koto and 10.2-MW Jabori plants — all of which are currently in development — in addition to feasibility studies for the 446-MW Kari Mushkar, 410-MW Tor Camp Godobar and 110-MW Gabral Kalam.
The financing amounts to about US$191.3 million, which comes from a combination of moneys already allocated by the province to small hydroelectric development.
The power development program is being directed by the Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organization. HydroWorld.com reported earlier this year that the northern province has a goal of constructing more than 350 new hydropower plants.
