Pakistan has completed construction of the Chashma-II nuclear power plant with China's cooperation and the facility has started producing 300 MW of electricity on a trial basis.

The project was completed ahead of schedule in a period of five years.

The plant has been connected to the national electricity grid, state-run APP news agency reported. Sources in the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission said construction of two more reactors – Chashma-III and Chashma-IV – has been started at the Chashma site with Chinese assistance.

These reactors will be completed in the next five to seven years. At the same time, work has started on upgrading the production capacity of existing nuclear power plants, the sources said.
