ISLAMABAD: Three liquefied natural gas (LNG)-based power plants in the public sector would add 2,400 megawatts (MW) of electricity to the national grid by September this year and would achieve full potential of 3,600 MW by January next year. According to Radio Pakistan, these include two projects funded by the government at Haveli Bahadur Shah and Balloki and one by the Punjab government at Bhikki. Three gas turbines have already reached the site and three more would reach by April this year. The Bhikki Plant has already been connected to the national grid and is expected to generate its first 800MW by March this year. Work on installation, testing and grid connection is going on in full speed on all the three sites.
