According to the Power Generation 1 Company, the project has been developed amid many difficulties, including severe weather, insufficient infrastructure and delays in land acquisition.
Extra workforce and equipment have been sent to the project to solve the problems while the contractor has worked closely with local authority to better manage residential displacement to acquire land for the plant’s construction.
