Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) has, over the years, built an extensive infrastructure for contributing to the socio-economic uplift of the country. Its activities span a wide spectrum: from nuclear power generation to minerals development, from developing high yielding, stress tolerant crops to the treatment of cancer, and from design and fabrication of industrial plants/equipment to human resource development.

Nuclear Energy

Nuclear power is pollution free, cost competitive and safe. It is independent of seasonal effects and provides security of electricity supply. Owing to these unique characteristics, it augurs well for sustainable development. PAEC is successfully operating three nuclear power plants with two more under construction, has three decades of experience in nuclear power plant operation at its credit and plans to build more nuclear power plants in the coming years to contribute to the energy requirements of the country.

Minerals Development

Prospecting, exploration and processing of minerals for local industry, and provision of expert geo-technical services in these areas.

Indigenous development of nuclear fuel and materials for local nuclear power plants.

Support To The Industry

PAEC is assisting the industry in its growth and competitive capability by providing:

Design and fabrication services for the manufacture of large-scale mechanical systems, complete plants and modules

Training/certification in welding techniques and site services for manufacturing & installation of plants

Training/certification in Non-Destructive Testing Techniques along with services for testing of manufactured equipment and in-service inspection of plants

Instrumentation & Control

PAEC undertakes design and installation of Instrumentation & Control Systems for its own projects and for the general industry. Various services are being provided in this area.

Research And Development

Assisting local industry through Research & Development.

Contributing to basic research in collaboration with world scientific bodies.

Based upon the excellence of its research labs. and human resource quality, PINSTECH, a research institute of PAEC has been declared Regional Resource Centre of IAEA.

Cancer Hospitals

PAEC is running 14 state-of-the-art cancer hospitals all over the country which are providing diagnostic and treatment services for cancer related diseases to around 650,000 patients annually, most of them free of charge. Four more such hospitals will be added shortly.

Agriculture & Biotechnology

Over the years, PAEC has developed more than 74 new high yielding, stress  tolerant crops varieties, which are fetching additional income to the farmers

Providing Saline Agriculture Technology for economic utilization of salt-affected lands in the country. Expert services in this area are provided to IAEA member countries.

Offering irradiation services for enhancing shelf life of fruits and vegetables

Development of an indigenous and low cost Laser Land Leveler, which drastically reduces irrigation water requirement to crops

Leading role in Bio-Tech research and applications

Human Resource Development

PAEC’s institutes namely Pakistan Institute of Engineering & Applied Sciences (PIEAS) and Karachi Institute of Power Engineering (KINPOE) offer Masters and Ph.D. degree programmes in Chemical & Materials Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Information Technology, Medical Sciences and Nuclear Power Engineering.
