A new substation has been inaugurated in Nowshera, Pakistan under the Integrated Power Development Scheme according to the state-owned Power Finance Corporation (PFC).

The 33/11 KV 6.3 MVA power substation was inaugurated virtually by Baseer Ahmad Khan, advisor to Lieutenant Governor of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, in the presence of other government officials, PFC said in a statement.

PFC did not disclose the cost of the power substation. The project will benefit more than 1,200 domestic and commercial consumers of upper Nonial, Lower Nonial, Berari, Gai, Chadyala, Kanara Patrati and the surrounding areas and reduce the forced curtailment of the power supply in the region, PFC said. It will also reduce the load on the 10 Mega Volt-Amp (MVA) Nowshera and 6.3 MVA Chowki Handan sub-stations.

PFC is the nodal agency for Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS). The inauguration ceremony was part of the ”Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” celebrations, marking 75 years of India’s independence, it said.
