The first unit of a coal-fired power plant built by PowerChina was inaugurated on Wednesday in Port Qasim, Karachi, Pakistan, a key project in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the Xinhua News Agency reported.

The plant's generation capacity is about 9 billion kilowatt-hours and it is scheduled to meet the demand of 4 million households in Pakistan while overcoming power shortages in the country, the news report said.

State-owned hydropower station builder PowerChina and a local company co-financed the $2.08 billion project, which took 36 months to build, the report said.
