Thermal 450 450 Permitting Sindh, Pakistan Kolachi Portgen


The project is being developed by Kolachi Portgen and is currently owned by Engro Powergen.

It is a combined cycle gas turbine (ccgt) power plant. The power plant can run on dual-fuel. The primary fuel being used to power the plant will be regasified liquefied natural gas. In case of shortage of regasified liquefied natural gas the plant will run on High Speed Diesel. The fuel will be procured from Pakistan LNG Limited.

The project cost is expected to be around $392.4m.

The Dual-Fuel fired project consists of 1 steam turbine with 150MW nameplate capacity.

Development Status

The project construction is expected to commence from 2022. Subsequent to that it will enter into commercial operation by 2024.

Power Purchase Agreement

The power generated from the project will be sold to K-Electric under a power purchase agreement for a period of 30 years.

Contractors Involved

Siemens will be the turbine supplier for the Dual-Fuel fired project. The company is expected to provide 1 unit of SGT5-4000F gas turbine with 300MW nameplate capacity.

Siemens is expected to perform operations and maintenance for thermal power project.
