Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Friday inaugurated the country's fifth nuclear power plant C-4 at Chashma, Mianwali area, reported DawnNews.

The C-4 plant is capable of generating 340MW electricity.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, PM Abbasi said that the project would help the country's energy problem.

The Chashma nuclear power projects units, C-1, C-2 and C-3 have already been successfully contributing to the national grid, he said, adding that two large nuclear power plants, K-2 and K-3, were also under construction that he hoped would be operational soon.

Abbasi said that the nuclear plants produce economical electricity; more power generation projects would be launched in Chashma and Muzaffarabad areas, he added.
