    Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) expects to begin construction of its 122-MW Keyal Khwar hydroelectric plant in April, HydroWorld.com has learned.

    WAPDA said engineering design, and prequalification of firms for civil and electromechanical works must still be completed before work can begin, but that it expects those prerequisites to be completed "very soon".

    The US$242.6 million Keyal Khwar hydropower plant will be located on Keyal Khwar, which is a tributary to the Indus River in the Dasu district of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

    Keyal Khwar is one of 15 hydro projects WAPDA said it is currently developing as part of its"least-cost energy generation and water storage plan" that could eventually include as many as 26 new hydropower plants, 21 GW of new installed capacity and 13 million acre feet of water storage.
