Chasma N-plant's second unit gets operating licence

A Pakistani atomic watchdog on Saturday granted an operating licence for the second unit of the Chashma nuclear power project, which produces 325MW of electricity.

The operating licence for the Chashma Nuclear Power Plant Unit-2 was granted by the Chairman of the Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority to the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, an official statement said.

The license was handed over at a ceremony held at the PNRA headquarters here.
Earlier, the PNRA provided a construction license in March 2006, a fuel load permit in December 2010 and a grid connection on March 15 last year, the statement said.
