Coal power plant in Bin Qasim to provide 52 MW to K-Electric

The 118 MW coal power plant, a subsidiary of Fauji Fertilizer Bin Qasim Limited (FFBL), inaugurated here Monday will provide 52 MW to K-Electric on sustained basis.

FFBL Chief Executive and Managing Director Lt-Gen (retd) Haroon Aslam talking to media said FFBL’s power company (FPCL) has entered into a long term agreement for 30 years. “The plant besides providing 52 MW electricity to K-Electric would also meet steam requirements of FFBL’s fertilizer plant,” he said.

The FFBL chief said the plant, one of the earliest coal power plants in the country to become operational, was capable of using both imported and indigenous coal as its fuel.

Haroon Aslam said the project featured a completely covered coal yard with extensive plantation and strict environmental control system to have minimum impact on the environment.

He commended the project team for their strong in-house technical capabilities coupled with vigor, enthusiasm and handwork.

Group General Manager Aamir Ahsan said completion and commissioning a unique and capital intensive coal based power generation facility within two years was challenging.
