Overview. The objective of this project is to provide operations and maintenance to the Tarakhil 105 MW Power Plant, an installation with a total of three (3) Power Blocks comprised of six (6) diesel generator engines per block, and to develop a training program to provide technical competence to DABS (Da Afghan Breshna Sherkat) personnel who will continue to manage, operate, and maintain this remarkable plant.

In 2007, USAID signed an agreement with the Afghan Government to build a 105 MW power plant to provide electricity to the residents of Kabul, Afghanistan, with the capacity to supply sustainable and reliable power. The construction phase was completed on 31 May 2010.

The power plantís full capacity of 105 MW will increase availability of electrical power to Kabulís homes and businesses during winter months, when electricity is in highest demand. Employment opportunities in approximately 100 job classifications that include administration, operations, and maintenance are anticipated.
