The Project seeks to mitigate Pakistan's energy shortage by restoring 128 megawatts to the national grid through the rehabilitation of power production from the Dam. It has funded the modernization of three generators by replacing old windings and installing digital governors, SCADA system and essential spare parts.
The project will reduce the energy short fall in Pakistan by adding 17.4 megawatts to the national grid. It will also provide seasonal flood mitigation to the vulnerable districts of Tank and D.I. Khan resulting in reduced expenditure on damaged infrastructure by an estimated $2.6 million annually as well as boosting agriculture production, and bringing employment opportunities.
The Satpara Dam will help meet the energy needs of the residents of Gilgit Baltistan by adding 17.6 megawatts to the local grid as well as aiding in flood mitigation and provision of water for domestic and farming use. The project includes completion of the civil works for the dam and power houses 1 through 4 and building an irrigation system.
The main objective is to restore 475 megawatts to the national power grid. Rehabilitation has resulted in 480 MW of capacity restoration plant, exceeding the target of 475MW.
Rehabilitation of the power station will mitigate energy shortage in the country by restoring 150 MW of generation through replacement of major parts of the thermal power station.
Rehabilitation of GTPS will restore 75 megawatts of generation capacity with rehabilitation and upgradation of major parts of the thermal power station.
