U.S. commits $280 million to Pakistani hydro development

Two Pakistani hydropower projects will receive a US$280 million boost compliments of the United States, HydroWorld.com has learned.

The American embassy in Pakistan says that relief of the country's energy crisis is a "top priority,", and the funds -- released by Congress this past week -- will support the 1,000-MW Mangla and 83-MW Kurram Tangi projects. The U.S. State Department says the money will be used for improvements at Mangla and "infrastructure support and due dilligence work" at Kurram Tangi.

U.S. support is expected to account for a 900 MW addition of additional hydroelectric capacity to Pakistan's grid by 2013, the embassy says.

In addition to the Mangla and Kurram Tangi projects, the U.S. is supporting ongoing work at the 17.4-MW Gomal Zam, 17.7-MW Satpara, 475-MW Muzzafargarh, 150-MW Jamshoro, and 3,478-MW Tarbela projects.
