The K-2 Karachi Nuclear Power Plant has successfully completed Hot Functional Tests (HFT), it was announced by the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC). 

This is the first overseas unit being built on China's Hualong One Nuclear Technology (HPR1000), a Chinese owned and developed third generation nuclear technology. 

The HFT, spread over several weeks, includes simulating nuclear power plant operations to verify the reliability of the main equipment and systems under thermal conditions before the reactor is loaded with nuclear fuel. The thermal testing will now be followed by nuclear fuel loading and grid-connected power generation.
