Pakistan signs agreement with Iran to get 100MW electricity for Balochistan

Pakistan government has signed an agreement with Iran to get an additional 100MW of electricity for Balochistan, Minister for Energy Khurram Dastgir Khan says.

The minister said the project will be completed in the shortest possible time to provide immediate relief to the people of the province.

The agreement for the supply of an additional 100MW of electricity to Gwadar was signed on June 21 by Pakistan’s National Transmission and Despatch Company and Iran’s power generation and distribution company known as TAVANIR.

Iran has supplied electricity to Pakistan’s Gwadar, Kech and Panjgur districts in the coastal Makran division in Balochistan since 1999. The neighboring country supplied 35MW daily until 2013 when the quota was increased to 100MW due to the growing power needs of the coastal city of Gwadar.
