Mirani Dam - History and Construction

History and Construction

The feasibility report of the Mirani dam project was first completed in 1956. The project then went in to the back screen due to the other major events of the time. 45 years passed like that and then in the wake of Gwadar Port development Mirani Dam was commissioned by Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) in 2001 to provide water for the Gawadar city. Its ground breaking was performed by the President of Pakistan in August 2001. The design was prepared by the National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK) and the construction contract was awarded in June 2002 on EPC/Turnkey basis to Mirani Dam Joint Venture, a consortium led by Descon Engineering Limited.

Commencement of work began in June 2002 and the project was completed in June 2007. Impounding of reservoir started in July 2006 and was inaugurated by the President on 16 November 2006.

Construction of the dam consumed 10.87 million man-hours and, at its peak, 1,550 people were employed for its construction, mostly from Kech and Gwadar districts. 19038 Acres of land was acquired for the project.
