At the present time, nuclear power supplies only a small contribution to the country’s energy requirements, generating 2.9% of the total (World Nuclear Association, 2003). Currently operating there are an old PHWR (125 MWe) supplied by Canada and the Chasnupp PWR (300 MWe) supplied by China. Both these reactors are operating under international safeguards. Pakistan also has a 9 MW research reactor.

There are also plans for another Chinese-designed PWR. This is proposed as a second unit at the Chasnupp nuclear plant at Chashma (Foratom e-Bulletin, 2003b).
