A team of Chinese experts will reach Lahore on August 10 to prepare a feasibility report for a 120 megawatt (MW) hydel power project at Taunsa Barrage.

This was stated by the Energy Secretary Jehanzeb Khan on Saturday during a meeting with the chief minister. Khan said that the government was also working on projects in six districts to generate power using wind.

Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif told participants that several 50 MW plants, which will generate energy using coal, will be set up in industrial estates through public private partnership. He constituted a committee, that is to be headed by the Planning and Development chairman, and told him to submit, in two days, a report on small power projects in the private sector.
