PAKISTAN ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION

​About Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC)

Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) owns and operates the Karachi Nuclear Power Complex (KANUPP), Pakistan’s first nuclear power plant, inaugurated on Nov. 28, 1972. PAEC joined COG as a member in 1992.

KANUPP is one of two nuclear power stations in Pakistan. KANUPP is the oldest CANDU power reactor currently operating. It completed its 30 years design life on Dec. 5, 2002 and was shut down to meet re-licensing requirements. During the shutdown, important plant modifications and retrofits were carried out. KANUPP was brought back in operation in November 2003. 

Nuclear power provides about three per cent of total electric power production in Pakistan.
