According to the latest report, PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi inaugurated the 4th extension of Tarbela Dam which has been completed under the CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor).
This is surely a noteable development and milestone with regard to exploiting the immense hydropower potential and balancing energy mix of Pakistan. It will offer affordable power to the consumers.
Work on the 4th extension of Tarbela started back in February 2014 and has completed in 4 years. In the beginning, the project was intended for irrigation but was later taken up for power generation considering the growing demand of power in the country.
