PQ coal-fired plant has so far produced 3 TWh of electricity

BEIJING: The China-backed Port Qasim coal-fired power plant in Pakistan has generated more than three terawatt-hours of electricity as of June 25 since its inauguration at the end of last year.

The plant is providing sufficient electricity supply for the country while optimizing its energy structure, which had previously depended on oil and gas, according to Power Construction Corp of China, also known as Power-China.

The plant will generate 9 TWh of electricity annually after its second unit starts operation in February, said PowerChina, the project’s investor, constructor, and operator.
