Notably, a consortium of Sinohydro and Pakistan’s Sachal Group was granted permission to construct the 82MW Turtonaz-Uzghor HPP in Chitral district of KP, next to Upper Dir district, four months ago. These projects are anticipated to reduce acute deprivation in these impoverished communities by providing employment and affordable electricity.

A 32 million cubic meter water reservoir with 45-meter-tall concrete retention walls is part of the Sharmayi HPP. Three underground power plants and a 7.8-kilometer pressure head race tunnel will be included in the project. The project will generate 696 million megawatt-hours of power annually.
