Only in Pakistan: 108 Mw powerhouse lying dead for want of minor repairs
CHITRAL: It can only happen in Pakistan. On one hand we are crying about shortage of electricity while on the other hand a 108 Mw hydel powerhouse located at Golen in Chitral is non operational for three weeks due to minor damage to the channel, because of floods. As per the local engineer, closure of power station caused a loss of around Rs 25 million daily as it could generate 2.6 million units (kwh) of electricity in 24 hours.
The faulty design of the power station has never been investigated into or at least no body has been held accountable for the faulty design, because of which the exchequer is loosing millions per day. .. CN report, 07 Aug 2020
