Kajakai power plant has the capacity for one more hydro turbine that can produce another 18 MW of electricity. The Afghanistan Infrastructure Services Project airlifted this new generator (in two 30-ton parts), four transformers (each weighing 30 tons), and other materials and supplies to an IRP camp near Kandahar, where they were stockpiled until they could be transported safely to the dam.
