LAHORE/ GUJRAT: The government is committed towards eliminating power load-shedding from the country, said Minister of State for Power Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali at the inauguration of the 220kv grid station in Gujrat on Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that power projects of over 10,000MW capacity are being completed on a fast track basis. The 220kv grid station Gujrat, along with the transmission line, has been constructed at a cost of Rs1.966 billion by the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC).

Ali appreciated the NTDC management, engineers, and staff for timely completion of the project, adding that the grid station will end forced load-shedding, improve voltage level and minimise tripping, which was being faced due to overloading of the system.
