Shahbaz Sharif says today is one of the greatest days in Pakistan’s history
BAHAWALPUR (92 News) – Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that the Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park (QASP)’s inauguration marks a historic day in the country’s history.
Speaking at the QASP inauguration ceremony Shahbaz Sharif said once completed, the QASP will be the biggest solar power project in the world. He revealed that China provided a Rs2 billion concession on the project. “The project will begin generating another 350MW of electricity by the end of this year,” he said.
The QASP has been designed to generate a total of 1,000 MW of electricity. The QASP’s first unit reportedly went into test run last month, achieving successful results.
Earlier, PM Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the second phase of the QASP through which 350MW will be produced.
