The project is being developed by Kolachi Portgen and is currently owned by Engro Powergen with a stake of 100%.
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 $405m.
The Dual-Fuel fired project consists of 1 steam turbine with 150MW nameplate capacity.
Post completion of the construction, the project is expected to get commissioned in 2023.
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.
Siemens Energy 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 Energy is expected to perform operations and maintenance for thermal power project.
