BEIJING: Chinese engineers are busy in energy and infrastructure development projects in Pakistan to address the power problem. With an ongoing energy shortage in Pakistan, several Chinese power companies and institutes are working closely with its government to take advantage of its natural resources and increase electricity production, reports China Daily. The Shanghai Marine Diesel Engine Research Institute recently agreed to help build a power plant in Pakistan to convert the by-product of processing sugarcane into electricity. The goal is for the plant to provide an annual capacity of 960,000 megawatt hours. The plant has the highest productivity among those of the same kind in the world,” said Jin Donghan, head of the institute.
