Staff Reporter

A landmark achievement has been accomplished at Jagran – II HPP where FWO devised a strategy to excavate the upstream with downstream portions of the Main Headrace Tunnel by carrying out excavation from both ends in opposite directions and meeting in the middle. This happened on 27 January 2021 when the milestone of meeting the two tunnels with a tolerance of less than 10 centimetres, was achieved successfully this has never been done before in Pakistan. FWO, while maintaining its professional integrity and credibility, has excavated 1.88 kilometres of Main Headrace Tunnel without even a single casualty in just 215 working days. Currently, FWO has completed 3.7 kilometres of tunnels excavation (including 2.9 kilometer of main headrace tunnel).
