Pakistan is the land of mighty rivers. A number of
ambitious projects to tame the bounties of these rivers
have been undertaken by the Government both for
irrigation purposes as well as for power generation.
SKB is proud to be the main contractor on the Hub Dam
Project Constructed in the 1970’s for water supply to
the cosmopolitan city of Karachi and to irrigate the
flat area of Baluchistan. In 1990’s, the company
remained involved in the construction of Barrage of the
Ghazi Barotha Hydropower Project in joint venture with
Impregilo of Italy and Zublin of Germany. This US$ 200
Million project is the largest barrage complex ever
constructed in Pakistan.
The most recent accomplishment of SKB is the
construction of Sabakzai Dam and its Irrigation System
in the arid terrain of Baluchistan. The successful
completion of this landmark project has augmented SKB’s
stature in this promising sector.
