1,320MW power plant connected to national grid

LAHORE: The 1,320MW coal-fired Hubco Power Plant has been connected with the national grid after the National Transmission and Despatch Company completed a new 500kV transmission line.

The line will also enable the company to evacuate power from its existing plant to the national grid, according to an official source.

The new coal-fired plant is being constructed under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Since the work on the project was launched last year, its first unit of over 400MW is set to start generation in December.
