First unit starts providing electricity to national grid

LAHORE: Following completion of its reliability test and adjustments thereafter, the first unit of Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project has started providing electricity to the national grid on Friday.

The unit will contribute 242.25 MW power to its full capacity to the system for one month (reliability period) after which its commercial operation will commence.

In yet another significant development, Unit No. 2 of the project has also undergone mechanical run tests starting May 16. This unit is expected to be synchronized with the national grid during next week for power generation on trial basis.
