Moving Forward

In a recent major development, Pakistan has decided to construct, in the medium term, another three nuclear power plants of 3,300 MWe combined capacity in Punjab, one in Chashma and two in Muzaffargarh, at an estimated cost of $13 billion. On the other hand, construction work on the two coastal nuclear power projects near Karachi, namely Kanupp-2 and Kanupp-3, each of 1,100 MWe installed capacity costing total $9.5 billion, is progressing according to schedule.  The committed plan for enhancing nuclear power generation capacity is being implemented with the Chinese technical and economic assistance extended under the all-weather friendship with Pakistan.
