China is helping Pakistan build a wind power plant near its southern port city of Karachi with a total investment of $115 million.

The Dawood wind power plant, located some 60 kilometers east of Karachi, is expected to generate 130 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, meeting the need of about 100,000 families in the local area, according to HydroChina Investment Corporation, LTD, which invested in the plant. 

Jiang Li, secretary of the corporation, told People’s Daily that the plant’s capacity is 49.5 MW. Its construction started in April of this year and is expected to be completed in June 2016 and start to generate power three months later. 

According to Yang Zhiyao, Manager of the Dawood Power Plant Project, the plant can be operated for 20 years after its completion. He said that all the investment will be recouped after eight years of operation. 

Yang added that wind power plants usually can be built very fast and thus are very effective in relieving the shortage of power in local areas.
