    KARACHI: The formal inauguration ceremony for two coal-fired power projects of 330MW each would be held on April 10 (tomorrow) in Thar.

    The project was completed under china-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) flagship public private partnership of government of Sindh. For this project, Sindh government has given the sovereign guarantee of seven hundred million dollars.

    It is pertinent to mention here that for the succession of project, Mai Bakhtawer Airport, roads and bridges were also established besides provision of water for power generation.

    Earlier, the first 330-megawatt power plant based on Thar coal was connected to the national grid after it started generating power from the world’s seventh largest coal reserves.

    This was announced by Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on his official Twitter account on March 19.

    “What a great day for Pakistan! The first 330MW power plant based on Thar coal synced with National Grid,” he had tweeted. “Grateful to Almighty Allah, and humbled to have been able to play a small part as Sindh is firmly putting Pakistan on the road to energy security!”
