Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is expected to inaugurate the 100 megawatts Iran-Gwadar power transmission project in Gwadar this week in a bid to resolve the port city’s lingering electricity issue.

According to sources, the port city will import uninterrupted electricity from Iran through the power transmission project.

The Gwadar Port Authority, Gwadar Development Authority, China Overseas Port Holding Company, Balochistan Secretariat, Quetta Electric Supply Company, and National Transmission and Dispatch Company have completed their preparations in this regard.

The sources said the final testing of the 100MW power project had been done successfully. After the inauguration of the project by the prime minister, the supply will be formally started.
