With the 15th power unit put into commercial operation on Oct 22, POWERCHINA has finished the Tarbela 4th Extension Hydropower Project on schedule.

As the largest power plant in Pakistan, Tarbela Hydropower Station has been dubbed the "Three Gorges Project in Pakistan". It was contracted by Voith (Shanghai) and designed by POWERCHINA Chengdu Engineering Co.

Upon operation, the four-stage expansion will provide more power to the country, solving the difficulties of power shortages during peak seasons and further boosting the rapid economic growth of Pakistan.

The operation of the Tarbela 4th Extension Hydropower Project marked yet another milestone in the friendship between China and Pakistan, as well as in the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative.

In an acknowledgement letter from Voith (Shanghai), the contractor spoke highly of POWERCHINA employees' hard work and full commitment.
