Pakistan to Build 3 Nuclear Plants for Electricity

Pakistan plans to build three new nuclear plants that will produce 8800 MW of electricity per annum by 2030, in order to get over an energy bottleneck causing 20-hour-long power blackouts daily.
Pakistan will increase electric production from nuclear energy to 8,800 MW levels by 2030 and to 40,000 MW by 2050, says Dr. Ansar Parvez, head of Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC). "These figures may seem high, but still, there will be a 15 per cent deficiency in electricity supply in Pakistan."
Pakistan started building a new nuclear power plant (NPP), K-2, near Karachi, a portcity on the Arabian Sea coast, and will build two new NPPs, Chasma-1 and Chasma-2, in Multan, a city in central Pakistan.
