Karachi, August 17: A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company Ltd (SECMC, a joint venture between the Government of Sindh and Engro Powergen a subsidiary of Engro Corporation Limited), China Power International Holding Ltd (CPIH), and Sino Sindh Resources (Pvt) Ltd (SSR) to develop 6000 MW of Thar coal based power plants in Sindh.

CPIH is a wholly-owned core enterprise of China Power Investment Corporation, one of five State Power Corporations in the Peoples Republic of China. The principal business of CPIH is to develop, construct, own, operate and manage large power plants. Currently, the company is managing power plants with a generation capacity of more than 23,000 MW. SSR and SECMC are the developers of Thar Coal Mining Blocks-I and Block-II, respectively.

According to the MoU, the parties have reached an intention of jointly developing, within the next 10 years, coal-fired power projects with a total installed net capacity of 6000 MWs in Sindh, Pakistan, which will be expected to use lignite coal mined from Block 1 and Block 2 in the Thar Coalfields. CPIH will be the majority shareholder and will be responsible for implementation and execution of the power projects subject to the signing of the formal agreement and the approval of Pakistan Government. The power projects will be developed in five (5) phases of 1200 MWs each with a configuration of 2 x 600MW. Coal mining will be independently developed by SSR and SECMC for Block 1 and Block 2, respectively, who will supply coal based on the coal demand created by the power projects developed by CPIH.

It is to be noted that Thar coalfields contain the worlds 7th largest coal reserves estimated at 175 Billion Tons, capable to produce 100,000 MW for the next 200 years. Thar lignite is indigenous, abundantly available, and ideally suited to produce electricity giving it distinct advantage over imported coal. Price of Thar Coal is set on a cost plus basis and is not linked to international energy price movements, thereby, insulating the end consumer of electricity in Pakistan from the vagaries of international coal price movements. Thar coal also has the advantage of economies of scale, which will result in a progressively lower coal price and predictable electricity price as the mining operation scales up and more power plants are added. Most importantly, utilization of Thar coal for power generation will result in huge foreign exchange savings versus any other imported energy resource.

Karachi, May 08: Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company (SECMC) a Joint Venture of Engro Powergen Limited (EPL) and Government of Sindh (GoS), for purchasing power from SECMCs 600 MW Mine Mouth Power Plant at Thar Block II.

SECMC has been issued a 30-year Mining Lease for Thar Block-II by Mines & Mineral Department of GoS to develop an Open Cast Lignite Mine at Thar Block-II, Sindh. SECMC, in collaboration with other investors, will also develop a 600 MW Mine Mouth Power Plant under the build-own-operate basis with the anticipated project life of 30 years.

Under the agreement signed between the companies, SECMC will carry out all the project development activities, which include development of a bankable feasibility study, tariff determination by NEPRA, execution of project agreements including incorporation of Project Company as well as arranging independent financing for the power project being undertaken by the Project Company

Upon completion of relevant conditions and milestones, KESC and SECMC will negotiate power purchase agreement, subject to mutually acceptable commercial terms and will facilitate SECMC, on a best efforts basis, to raise a non-recourse loan from commercial financial institutions or other multilateral funding agencies. KESC might also consider equity participation in the project company.

Speaking at the occasion, Shamsuddin A. Shaikh CEO of Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company said: Thar Coal is a project of national security as it will bring the much needed energy security to propel the nation into an era of prosperity and development. SECMCs Thar Block-2 alone can produce 5,000 MW for next 50 years that amount to an estimated forex savings of USD 50 billion for life of the project. This project will demonstrate maturity and capability of corporate sector to join hands and synergise on national agenda.

Nayyar Hussein CEO of KESC said, This memorandum is of strategic importance for the country as well as for both the companies. We are keen to work together to realize the potential of Thar coal reserves, which could be the major indigenous fossil fuel resource for Pakistans present and future energy needs. We are confident that together we would do the ground breaking work in coal exploration and coal-fired power generation in Thar region, paving the way for other developers to embark upon major infrastructure development projects.

Engro Powergen Thar Ltd (EPTL) says it has successfully tested and energised its first 330 MW unit of the combined 660 MW coal-fired power plant in the Thar Coalfield of Sindh, Pakistan, hooking the plant up to the national grid.

Engro Powergen Thar was formed in 2014 to set up a 660 MW power project in the Thar Block II. The company is a joint venture between Engro Powergen Ltd (with 50.1% ownership), China Machinery Engineering Corp (CMEC the EPC contractor for the project), Habib Bank Ltd and Liberty Mills Ltd. The project is one of the early projects of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

The 660 MW power plant will use circulating fluidised bed technology to burn coal. Once commercial, the plant will send 660 MW of electricity through a 282-km long 500 kV Double Circuit Quad-Bundle transmission line from the EPTL plant to Matiari in Sindh province. The power plant although the first in Pakistan running on Thar coal complies with all local environmental laws and has voluntarily adopted various international compliance standards, according to EPTL.

The company said: The synchronisation of the first unit of the power plant is a considerable achievement given that the project has been constructed in a record time of under three years as per schedule and projected costs, a feat in itself given the complexity of the project.

The President of Engro Corp, Ghias Khan, said: The first sync of the power plant on Thar coal is truly a momentous occasion for entire Pakistan. Engros commitment to the Thar coal project goes back almost a decade when we entered into a public private partnership in 2009.

The synchronisation of the first unit of the 660 MW power plant is both testament to Engros capacity to engineer excellence and deliver on this project of national importance which will ensure the energy security of the county.
