Gwadar’s 300MW coal plant will end the energy shortage by 2023. By October 2023, when the 300 megawatts (MW) coal-fired power plant is finished, the port city of Gwadar will no longer have to deal with the problems caused by a lack of energy.
Under Gwadar’s 2050 Master Plan, the 300MW coal-fired Gwadar Power Plant would be able to meet the needs of about 150,000 local people by the end of 2023. This was revealed by an official source who shared new information about the project.
He also said that one of the most important energy projects in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a power plant for an independent power producer.

The aim of the project was to make the local power supply more reliable. This would help solve the problems with economic growth and building cities in the Gwadar region, which are being held back by a lack of power.
“Right now, diesel generators cost us millions of dollars a year to use to make electricity. I hope that the plant will be running soon so that the port won’t have to worry about not having enough power.
The power plant is very important for deepening China and Pakistan’s energy cooperation, boosting the Belt and Road Initiative, improving Balochistan’s overall power structure, and boosting economic growth in Gwadar Port.
All of the major CPEC projects in Gwadar, such as the Gwadar Power Plant, the New Gwadar International Airport Project, the China-Pakistan Friendship Hospital, the China-Pakistan Technical and Vocational Institute in Gwadar, the Gwadar East-bay Expressway Project, the Gwadar Free Zone, and the Gwadar Port, would become a shining pearl in the area.
