With a capacity of 7,100 megawatts, the proposed Bunji Hydropower Project would be the largest of its kind in Pakistan. The project would be located on the Indus River near Gilgit, with a powerhouse and dam 348 and 380 miles (560 and 612 kilometers) from Islamabad, respectively.
For over 50 years, Mott MacDonald has helped drive development in
Pakistan. In addition to land and water resource projects, Mott MacDonald has contributed to 12 hydropower projects, including the award-winning Ghazi Barotha and Sukkur Barrage projects.
For the Bunji Hydropower Power, our project team, together with local companies and international partners from France and Japan, provided a feasibility study, detailed engineering, and tender documents.
Our analysis helped identify the optimum scheme within financial, economic, and environmental constraints, and developed the documentation necessary to begin implementing it.
