Sindh govt plans to build ‘Floating Solar Power Plant’ on Keenjhar Lake
The Sindh government has announced to build Pakistan’s first eco-friendly 500 MW floating solar power plant on Keenjhar Lake, Thatta.
Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Sheikh said the $400 million project would start generating electricity in two years.
He said that this was a unique floating solar power plant project for Pakistan which would not only provide 500 MW of environmentally friendly electricity but would also create employment opportunities in the province.
“Keenjhar Lake will promote tourism and help in controlling load shedding,” he added.
Imtiaz Shaikh said that the 500 MW eco-friendly power project was another milestone of the achievements of the Sindh government.
On the other hand, the Sindh Cabinet also approved the establishment of Sindh Electric Power Regulatory Authority (SEPRA).
