The C-4 plant is capable of generating 340MW of electricity, Dawn reported.

Speaking on the occasion, Abbasi said the project would help the country overcome its energy problem.

The Chashma nuclear power project units C-1, C-2 and C-3 have already been successfully contributing to the national grid, he said, adding that two large nuclear power plants, K-2 and K-3, were also under construction that he hoped would be operational soon.

Abbasi said the nuclear plants produce economical electricity and more power generation projects would be launched in Chashma and Muzaffarabad areas.

The Prime Minister thanked China for its cooperation and said the projects could not have been completed without the support of the Chinese people and government.
