Contract for Kajaki Dam 2nd Phase awarded to a Turkish company

Kajaki is located in the southern
Helmand province of Afghanistan
The contract for the implementation of the 2nd phase of Kajaki Dam Project was signed during a ceremony at the Presidential Palace in Kabul to further develop the dam for producing 150MW of electricity. The 2nd phase contract has been awarded to a Turkish company. The Ministry of Energy & Water of Afghanistan said the development work will further expand the reservoir of the dam to 2.1 billion cubic meters, generating 150MW of electricity. This comes as a MoU was signed earlier in July this year between the Ministry of Energy & Water of Afghanistan and the Turkish company. The contract for the extension of the dam was aimed at paving the way for the generation of 100MW more of electricity in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan. The Minister of Energy & Water, Mr Ali Ahmad Osmani, said 150MW of electricity would be produced in total with the completion of 2nd phase works. The President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani said earlier in March that work on key infrastructure projects, including construction of water dams, will start in accordance with the available resources. During a meeting of the National Procurement Commission (NPC), President Ghani reviewed a report by the Ministry of Energy & Water regarding the construction of 29 large, medium and small water dams.
