The initiatives of KE were appreciated, however, it was made clear that no compromise on provision of reliable and safe power supply will be made. The Authority directed KE to ensure effective supervision at job sites so that the consumers and employees stay safe. The Authority also showed great concern on delay in completion of 900 MW Bin Qasim Power Station 3 (BQPS-III) Project and discussed the current progress and the new completion date, which KE confirmed as November 30, 2021.
