Another big project by PML-N govt to end energy crisis in Pakistan. :banana:
One thing: The power plants need to be built on the bank of rivers or perennial canals. I think abundant and constant supply of water is essential for cooling / temperature control of the power plants. we dont have constant water sources in bahawalpur. Sutlej remains dry most of the times and no 365 day canal there.Wow... Great news.... But one thing why have the chosen Sahiwal which is a very fertile land? They could have chosen some area that is more barren like Bahawalpur or Multan etc. so that very good agricultural land might not be used.... But anyways it is an excellent news for Pakistan.
Board of Investment lists location and brief details as:^^

Total coal deposits in Punjab are 235 million tonnes (for comparison Sindh has 184 Billion tonnes). 213 million in the eastern salt range (Khushab, Khewra, Dandot) and 22 million in Makarwal (Mianwali). Both are sub-bituminous but not sure if anyone is going to invest in them.I heard there are coal deposits near Sahiwal? If so, this is will be awesome!
