Port Qasim Coal-fired Power Plant generates over 5b kWh

Updated: 2019-08-27

The cumulative power generation of the Port Qasim Coal-fired Power Plant constructed by POWERCHINA in Pakistan has reached 5.01 billion kilowatt-hours in 2019 to date.

Since 2019, many thermal power projects in Pakistan have been put into operation, and the low civil load caused by the low temperature in the summer this year has brought certain impacts on the production and operation of the Port Qasim Coal-fired Power Plant.

In order to successfully complete its annual production target, the power plant company made an overall plan for the work in 2019 and proposed 16 major tasks, five phased important tasks, and 11 important works in line with the actual production and operation of the project.

It actively studied the trial operation of other power stations in Pakistan to adjust the power generation strategy in time, while maintaining good customer relations with Pakistan Central Power Purchasing Agency Guarantee Limited and the National Energy Grid of Pakistan.

Facing the difficulties of frequent power grid instability in Pakistan and the deterioration of the external production environment, the power plant company has been working hard to respond and solve the issues.

It also further enhanced its competitiveness through technological transformation, operation optimization, and management improvement.

In the future, the power plant company will strive to reach the annual target, contributing to Pakistan's social and economic development, as well as the construction of the China–Pakistan Economic Corridor.
