CPEC Hydropower Station Starts Impoundment in NW Pakistan

The Suki Kinari Hydropower Station in Pakistan, funded and built by CEEC, has commenced its water impoundment phase. The first unit of the plant will enter operation by May.

This power station is among the initial flagship projects under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor - CPEC, and the largest greenfield #hydropower investment by a Chinese enterprise overseas. It has a reservoir capacity of 13.45 million cubic meters and an installed capacity of 884 MW.

When fully operational, it is slated to provide 3,200 GWh of affordable, clean energy to over 1 million Pakistani households per year, equivalent to cutting 1.28 million tons of standard coal consumption, marking an important step towards local green growth.
