According to the details, Dadu Grid Station transmits power to northern Sindh and Balochistan but due to the unprecedented flood, it was under dire threat. Therefore, it was necessary to protect the grid station from floods for an uninterrupted power supply.
For this cause, all the military and civilian institutions and stakeholders joined hands in order to take all protective measures and extra resources, manpower and heavy machinery were deployed to build protective walls around the grid station.
People placed sandbags and built embankments on the front side of the station to divert the ingress flow of the flood. It took them 36 hours of hard work to construct a 2.4km long protective dyke.
Resultantly, the grid station was protected from the flood relay and the power supply to the area was not interrupted.
The people of the area thanked the Pak Army and civil institutions for their efforts.
