glimpse of our strives.

Education in WAPDA




Conscious of its corporate social responsibility, WAPDA is providing education to WAPDA/NonWAPDA students. Since majority of the students belong to lower strata of society in economic and
social terms, the fees are quite nominal. The primary aim focus and objective of education is to
inculcate in the students not only the thirst for academics but also the basic values of life for example
love of humanity, brotherhood, togetherness etc. so that they may become useful members of the

WAPDA Healthcare




Pakistan WAPDA along with its sister

corporate entities constitutes a huge establishment in term of number of employees. The fact
that it has various formations and activities spread throughout the breadth and width of the
country, puts on it even more onerous responsibility to look after its precious human resource.
WAPDA strives hard to take care of the social needs of its employees and their dependent
family members. Most important of these facilities is the Health Cover because a healthy and
mentally satisfied worker is the backbone and vital asset of any vibrant organization.
WAPDA Medical Services with the MOTTO of "CURE WITH CARE" is doing a commendable
job in providing effective and efficient health care facilities through its network of hospitals and
dispensaries in various parts of the country.
These services are availed not only by WAPDA employees but are also being extended to the
employees of various corporatized units of WAPDA including DISCO's, GENCO's & NTDC.
Keeping in view the quantum and critical nature of these requirements it was decided to
establish a Departmental Healthcare Delivery System because it will be cost effective for the
organization, convenient both for patients and employer as well as can be regulated to avoid

The facilities provided at these 41 health units are availed by more than 83,534 registered
employees which include serving, retired and widows. The dependents of the employee are also
entitled and with an average family consisting of six persons, there are nearly 501,204 patients
who are benefiting from this system.There is a large No. of employees (60,000 Approx) who,
though drawing Cash Medical Allowance, are entitled to limited facilities of consultation,
emergency treatment, admission and investigations. These people also add on to the workload
of our health units. Last year more than Two Million patients visited the WAPDA Health Care
delivery system, which means an average daily attendance of more than 6000 patients.

World Water Day 2016



Lahore March 22, 2016: The Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) today
organised a ceremony here at WAPDA House to mark the World Water Day which is celebrated on
March 22 every year across the globe.
Addressing the ceremony, WAPDA Chairman highlighted the significance of water for life. Besides
enhancing water storage capacity in Pakistan, the culture of water conservation in all walks of life will
have to be adopted to avoid water scarcity in the country. All stakeholders, intellectuals and media in
particular, will have to play their role to promote a culture of water conservation through its prudent
use, he added. The Chairman said that rapid growth in our population has been adversely impacting
per capita availability of water in Pakistan, adding that per capita availability of water which used to
be 8182 cubic meter in 1947, has decreased to an alarming level of 1032 cubic meter in 2016,
turning Pakistan into a water stressed country. He further said that if population growth remains
unchecked and water reservoirs are not constructed, the Pakistan will become a water starved

The Chairman said that annual river flows in Pakistan stands at about 145 million acre feet on the
average, of which 80% is available in 100 days from April to August. This erratic pattern of river flows
necessitates construction of more dams so that water could be made available throughout the year,
he added. The Chairman apprised the audience that Pakistan has only 10 percent storage capacity
of the annual water flows against the world average of 40 percent. This carry over facility is sufficient
only for 30 days. Emphasizing upon the need for water pricing, he said that monetary value will have
to be added to water to check wastage of water.He further said that as many as 10 MAF of water
can be saved by lining the canals located in saline areas. Together with conserving water through
this sort of measures and constructing more water reservoirs, we can bring about 20 million acres of
more land under plough. He also highlighted other challenges faced by the water sector including
level of aquifer and deterioration of its quality, absence of regulation for extracting ground water, low
water charges, high delta crops, cropping pattern and low productivity of water.
Later, WAPDA Member (Water) Muhammad Shoaib Iqbal, Member (Power) Badr-ul-Munir Murtiza
and Member (Finance) Anwar-ul-Haq apprised the audience about water sector, hydropower sector
and financial strategies for WAPDA projects respectively. University of Agriculture Faisalabad Vice
Chancellor Dr. Iqrar spoke of need to introduce technology for future water requirements. Lahore
University of Management Sciences (LUMS) Dr. Abu Bakr Muhammad highlighted the importance of
building smart water grid for Indus Basin in Pakistan, while WAPDA Advisor Abdul Khaliq Khan
briefed the audience about initiatives for water security.

Renowned intellectuals and writers namely Munnoo Bhai, Asghar Nadeem Syed, Wasif Nagi, Munir
Baloch, Tahir Sarwar Mir and Sughra Sadaf, in their brief deliberations, underlined the need to
conserve water.

Later, cash prizes and certificates were presented to the winners of poetry, essay-writing and postermaking competitions, organised by WAPDA about water conservation.

Mangla Power Refurbishment

font size




Location: Mangla Dam / Power Station is located on River Jhelum at about 120 Km from Islamabad
Purpose: Mangla Dam is a multipurpose Project, primarily designed for Irrigation. The other by
products are Power Generation, Fish Culture, Tourism and Navigation.
Construction: Mangla Power House was completed in four stages. The initial phase comprising of
four units of 100 MW each was completed in 1967-69. The first extension of Unit No. 5&6 (2X100
MW) was completed in 1974 while second extension comprising Unit No 7&8 (2X100 MW) was
completed in 1981. The project attained its maximum capacity of 1000 MW with the final extension of
Unit No 9&10 (2X100 MW) in 1993-94.
Dam Raising: Mangla reservoir had initial gross capacity of 5.88 MAF, which reduced to 4.674 MAF
(Year 2005) and was likely to reduce further with the passage of time due to sediment deposition.
Keeping in view the capacity loss due to sedimentation and provision for raising in the original
design and construction, Raising of Mangla Dam was started in 2004 and the Project was completed
in 2009. The Dam height has been raised by 30 feet while maximum conservation level increased
from 1202 feet to 1242 feet corresponding to additional water storage capacity of 2.88 MAF. There
will be additional energy generation of 644 GWh due to availability of more water and rise in net
head of machines.


There are four age groups of Mangla machines Units 1~4 (43 years), Units 5~6 (38
years), Units 7~8 (32 years) & Units 9~10 (18 years). The first 6 Units with age of
30~40 years have outlived their useful lives due to which more cost and time are
required for maintenance of old equipment besides less operational reliability. Some of
the important aspects are:

Efficiency of Turbines has reduced from their designed values.

The Hydraulic/Mechanical Equipment have become unreliable due to


Generators winding of existing Units 1~4 & 7~8 is of Class-B

insulation whereas the latest Class-F has higher tolerance of

Control & Protection Equipment of old units have become obsolete

and their spare components are not available for being out of

Dam life has enhanced after completion of the Dam Raising Project
but the old generating units will not have life compatibility with the

Mangla Refurbishment Project JV (MRP JV) submitted Final Feasibility

Report in December, 2011 and based on the results of extensive
studies, recommended up-gradation from 1000 to 1310 MW at 0.8
Feasibility Study Power Factor as it satisfies all the objectives of Scope of Work.
