Shahriar Dam is constructed on the Ghezel-Owzan River some 35 km from the city of Mianeh. The main objectives of this double arch concrete dam are the provision of irrigation and industrial water for both Azarbaijan and Guilan provinces, as well as sedimentation control and removal from the famous Sefid-rud Dam downstream. This project is one of the very first Design-Build-Finance (DBF) projects awarded by the Iranian Ministry of Energy.

Tablieh, as the leading member of Tablieh–Farab Consortium, was responsible for the entire civil works of the dam. Tablieh also provided extensive valuable design services in the context of a “Local Design Team” cooperating with the Swiss consulting firms, Stucky – Poyry Joint Venture.
