ISLAMABAD: The second unit of the 425-525 megawatt (MW) Nandipur Power plant will start supplying 95.6 MW to the national grid system in August. Nandipur Power Project Managing Director Muhammad Mehmood said the timing of completion for the second unit was July 31. However, owing to Ramazan and pre-monsoon rain, the second phase would be completed in August. The first unit of the project has already started supplying 95.5 MW to the national grid. Mehmood further stated that the first unit was completed seven months before its scheduled time. He said work on the project site was in full swing and it would cost Rs56 billion. The plant can potentially generate 425 MW if run with furnace oil and 525 MW with gas.
