WAPDA breaks records for hydel power production in 2019

A record amount of hydel electricity was supplied to the national grid during the year 2019 by WAPDA. The hydel power stations owned and operated by WAPDA provided 34.678 billion units of hydel electricity – highest-ever – to the system in 2019. This quantum of generation is 6.321 billion units higher compared with last year i.e. 28.357 billion units.

The optimal operation of three hydropower projects, completed last year, proved to be a good omen for hydel generation in the country since these projects alone generated 9.372 billion units cumulatively during their operation in 2019 .In addition, after almost five decades the construction work on Mohmand Dam was started in May this year.
