LAHORE: The 969MW Neelum-Jhelum Hydropower Plant achieved a landmark as its contribution to the national grid crossed the 10 billion units generation mark on Sunday night, thereby yielding a revenue of over Rs120bn.

A spokesman of the Water and Power Development Authority said on Monday that the power plant, with efficient operation, had not only been meeting the design generation but also exceeding the annual rated generation.

The plant generated 4,843 million units during the financial year 2019-20 against a target of 4,660m units despite Covid-19 hiccups.
