Feasibility study for the Akhori Dam project on the Nandna Kas River near Akhori/Pakistan


The Akhori Dam project is part of a development programme worth around thirty billion dollars which was launched in the early 1990s by Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA). The goal of this programme, also referred to as Water Vision 2025, is to create a completely new, modern foundation for both water supply and the use of hydropower in Pakistan. The WAPDA aims to have a total of five barrages in place by 2025 with an overall installed power of around 16,000MW.


Akhori Dam is to be built near the Akhori village on the river Nandna Kas, a tributary of the Haro River in the Attock district of Punjab. The dam is designed to be 130 meters high and for a capacity of 600 megawatts. The dam is expected to take five years to build and construction costs were estimated at the time of planning to be 4.4 billion US dollars.
