KARACHI:


Bahria Town chief Malik Riaz on Friday announced that his construction conglomerate will invest billions of rupees to set up power generation plants in Karachi.


“We will install electricity generation units that will run on coal and liquefied natural gas (LNG),” he said in a statement.

The multi-billion rupee project will ensure uninterrupted supply of electricity to Bahria Town, he said.

In view of the chronic power shortage, Bahria Town has decided to invest billions of rupees to set up one coal-fired and one LNG-powered electricity generation plant within a period of three to four years. These projects will guarantee uninterrupted power to Bahria Town Karachi.

Malik Riaz said that he wants Karachi to be counted among the world’s top cities.

The Bahria Town project has opened up employment and business opportunities for hundreds of thousands of people, Malik Riaz said.

Kepler-8B | 6 years ago | Reply Does Malik Riaz has green team who can advise on alternate energy. Karachi is already one the most polluted city in the world. Use of coal to generate electricity is not viable solution. Karachi needs huge wind turbines farms along the coastal highways. Generate electricity from ocean like Spain.
