CPEC projects powering Pakistan, creating employment

M. Muneeb, a senior official of Sahiwal Coal-fired Power Station said that Pakistan’s issue of energy supply has been addressed through CPEC power projects which remained operational even during the pandemic. Moreover, he said that these projects have created a lot of employment opportunities so far and successful and high-quality construction of CPEC will be a harbinger of prosperity for all.


 ISLAMABAD – CPEC projects are not only bringing electricity to Pakistan but are also a major source of training for professionals, ultimately contributing to the well-being of local people for Pakistan.

This was stated by M. Muneeb, a senior official of Sahiwal Coal-fired Power Station, who was awarded the Outstanding Pakistani Employee of CPEC Project by the Chinese Embassy, says a report published by Gwadar Pro on Saturday.

The Sahiwal project, initiated in 2015, plays a crucial role in domestic electricity supply.


“As the CPEC power projects entered the system, the country’s loadshedding reduced from an average of 18 hours to almost negligible,” the official said adding the Sahiwal project is directly influencing the lives of local communities through continuous supplying power.


In addition to electricity, CPEC projects also bring more invisible value to Pakistan. Muneeb said, “More importantly, this project gave job opportunities to locals. Most of the engineers, managers and workers are from nearby areas.” Talking about future plans, along with my professional career, I am already doing M.Sc. in Thermal Power Engineering.”


 “Coal power can be cleaner, and a huge part of produced energy can be saved. We will find out ways to improve thermal coal power plant efficiency, so as to make it more environment friendly.”


 “As CPEC has entered its second phase, I encourage people of different sectors to take part in its projects and request Pakistani authorities to keep in view the importance of CPEC, give further support to increase its speed to harvest its fruit,” he said.
