Karachi: A Malaysian Company has offered to set up a power plant in Iran to generate and supply 3000MW electricity to Pakistan. Quetta would become the centre point for import of electricity in case this project gets a go ahead.
According to Alfalah Securities Limited, this project will greatly overcome the electricity shortfall in the country. However, stringent administrative measures would be required to do away with line losses and power thefts for the sake of bringing efficiency in the power transmission and distribution system. Moreover there is also a proposal for construction of 220KV Grid Station at Chakdara and its associated 220KV Chakdara-Mardan Transmission Line, which is expected to be constructed during 2013-14.
