AFRY, as a member of the Diamer Basha Consultants Group (DBCG), has been awarded the contract for consultancy services for the Diamer Basha Dam Project. The deals includes construction design, construction supervision and contract administration of the project, which is scheduled to be completed by 2030.

The DBCG Joint Venture comprises of six national and foreign JV partners, namely NESPAK (Pakistan), ACE (Pakistan), AFRY (Switzerland), MWH International - Stantec (USA), Dolsar Engineering (Turkey), Mott MacDonald Pakistan (Pakistan) and 6 national and foreign sub-consultants.

The Diamer Basha Dam Project is located on the Indus River about 315 km upstream of the Tarbela Dam (in operation) and about 74km upstream of the Dasu dam (under construction). The main features of the project include a 272m high roller compacted concrete (RCC) arched gravity dam with a concrete volume of some 17 million cubic metres and two underground powerhouses having a total installed capacity of 4500MW generated by 12 Francis-type turbine units. 

The dam will impound a reservoir having a total storage capacity of about 10,000 MCM and a live storage of about 7,900 MCM. When completed, the dam will be the tallest RCC dam in the world and one of the tallest concrete gravity dams in the world. 

“It is a pleasure to contribute our expertise and knowledge as part of the DBCG towards this ground breaking project, being recognised on completion as being the tallest of its kind, further strengthens AFRY’s leading position within the global hydro sector”, says Knut Sierotzki, Vice President Hydropower, Asia.
