KARACHI:SITE Association of Industry has protested against unannounced load shedding in SITE area by K-Electric and has demanded the government to ensure uninterrupted power supply to industries.
In a statement today (Tuesday), Suleman Chawla has said that the suspension of production activities will have an adverse impact on national exports.
He added that in a recent meeting with SITE industrialists, K-Electric assured that no load shedding will be done in industrial areas but unfortunately, K-Electric has backed out from its commitment.
President SITE Association further said that coronavirus pandemic has already damaged the industry and the national economy as a whole. “Industries are battling for their survival and the recent load shedding by K-Electric will force them to close down,” he added.
Explaining how load shedding effects industrial process & production, Chawla said, “If a boiler stops working due to load shedding, it takes about 3-4 hours to resume its operations which causes huge losses to the industry concerned.” Suleman Chawla has demanded an immediate end to load shedding in the SITE industrial area.
