Early harvest project of CPEC: Wind power plant near completion, but transmission line not ready

A 99-megawatt wind power project being developed in Sindh under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has suffered a setback as the existing transmission system lacks the capacity to carry this additional load.
Apart from this, the state-run power purchaser has threatened to slap penalty on project sponsors if the plant starts commercial production because the infrastructure is not ready, an official discloses.
The project is already late and it will now be ready in June this year compared to the earlier deadline of September 2016.
