China-Pakistan Power Plant Corporation is a corporation set up by the governments of China and Pakistan to build nuclear power plants in Pakistan and China.[1]

Pakistan has shortage of electricity resulting in periodic blackouts all over the country. These nuclear plants will help alleviate power shortage in expanding economy. This will help Pakistan’s nuclear energy requirements of 8,800 megawatts by 2030 by expediting the delivery of six nuclear power plants of 300MW each.[citation needed] Earlier, China had assisted Pakistan in setting up the Chashma Nuclear Power Plant with Chashma-1 and Chashma-2 units of the same capacity.[citation needed]
