Transmission test of 100 MWs from Iran to Gwadar completed

News Desk:


The test to transmit 100 Mega Watts of electricity from Iran to Gwadar was successfully completed. The testing was conducted by National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NDTC) after completing the transmission line for importing more than 100 megawatts of electricity from Iran.

On the instructions of the Prime Minister and the Energy Minister, NTDC completed the project within the stipulated period. It has been reported that after the testing of the transmission system, the supply of more than 100 megawatts of electricity to Gwadar will start in the next few days.

The completion of the project will improve the power supply in Gwadar and Makran divisions. The governments of Pakistan and Iran signed an agreement in June 2022 to supply 100 megawatts of additional electricity to meet Gwadar’s power needs.

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, during his visit to Gwadar last year, directed the concerned authorities to complete the project in a short period of time. Gwadar relies on imported electricity from Iran and the construction of the 132 KV line will connect the coastal city to the national grid for the first time.
