Unit 4 of the Chashma nuclear power plant (C-4) in Pakistan passed its final official acceptance on Sept 23 (Pakistan Standard Time).

The final acceptance ceremony of the C-4 was held at the site of the Chashma nuclear power plant in Pakistan.

Constructed by CNNC, the unit is China's fourth overseas nuclear power unit.

China and Pakistan have maintained a strong partnership in the nuclear power sector for more than three decades since the two countries signed an agreement to facilitate the transfer of civil nuclear technology, CNNC officials said.

Since the two countries began cooperating on civil nuclear energy, China has played a significant role in helping Pakistan develop its nuclear energy technology, by assisting the latter in the development of nuclear infrastructure and the construction of nuclear power plants.
