    ISLAMABAD:*Up to five under-construction power projects are expected to be delayed by four months, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was told at a meeting held to review the progress on the ongoing projects, The Express Tribune has learnt.

    Nawaz was briefed about the status of ongoing projects in various parts of the country and the likely availability of power in the coming months. He was also apprised of the completion timelines of coal and gas based projects.
    The sources privy to the development told The Express Tribune that Nandipur power project will be fully operational till April next year ó capacity of this project is 425MW.

    The prime minister, while inaugurating the first turbine of Nandipur Project in May, 2014, had announced that the project will be fully operational till the end of year. However, it is expected to experience a delay of four months.

    Sources further informed that another ongoing power project, Chashma-IV of 400MW capacity, will become operational next year. Fauji Foundation Wind Project, having a capacity of 50MW, in Sindh will become functional next year, they added.

    Comission, subcontracts, royalties and bribes have to be paid to the PMLN crooks. Can't do much with the leftovers, hence further delays.
