Diesel Thermal Power Plant Operations and Maintenance

Overview. In 2003, USAID committed to providing emergency diesel-generated power to key southern cities that include Kandahar (Kandahar Province), Lashkar Gah (Helmand Province), and Qalat (Zabul Province). The World Bank provided emergency diesel generators to eight provincial cities, including Musa Qala (Helmand Province), and Tirin Kot (Uruzgon Province). Providing diesel power to these areas was considered to be a short-term solution to provide immediate sources of electricity while longer-term and more sustainable lower-cost solutions were being developed.

A combination of factors, including security challenges and resource and capacity constraints have extended the length of time that the diesel power stations have remained in use. The stations require continued operations and maintenance support. The changing reality over the past four years makes it clear that the temporary diesel power stations must be converted to permanent installations. USAID provides technical support and is developing the capacity of Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (Afghanistan National Electricity Corporation DABS) to manage these power plants.
