    State-owned Hebei Electric Power Design and Research and Ningxia Electric Power Design Institute are subsidiaries of the Power Construction Corporation of China, added the Times of Oman report. After getting the clearances, the company plans to start work on the power project within six months, Lee Chee Khian, chief executive officer of Special Economic Zone Authority, Duqm, told the newspaper.
