Pakistan state-run hydropower company Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) has synchronized the third and last unit of the 1,410 MW Tarbela-4 extension hydropower project with the domestic power grid. The project is located on the Indus river in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region (Pakistan) and entails three turbine-generator units with a capacity of 470 MW each. With the completion of the project, the total capacity of the Tarbela power plant will increase from the current 3,478 MW to 4,888 MW.

WAPDA is also moving ahead with other large hydropower projects and commissioned in particular the 969 MW Neelum Jhelum hydropower project (NJHP) in August 2018 (Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan).
