Germany funds reconstruction of Baghlan hydropower dams

baghlan hydropowerTwo hydropower dams in northern Baghlan province will be reconstructed with financial collaboration from Germany.

Provincial water and energy director Ghulam Hussain Haidari said 32mn Euros is allocated for the reconstruction of one of the dams that can generate 4.5MW of electricity.  The second dam, having the capacity to generate 9MW of electricity, would be reconstructed at a cost of 16mn Euros.

Upon the completion of the projects, the number of consumers would increase from 30,000 to 50,000.

The dams currently supply power to Dand-e-ghori Sugar mill in Pul-e-Khumri and Baghlan-e-Markazi district and intermittently to a textile factory and families living nearby. Power from the plants is also supplied to half of Pul-i-Khumri’s populations.
