Hubco - 1320MW coal power plant

http://www.brecorder.com/br-research...ate=2016-07-19




The CPEC portfolio consists of several early harvest coal energy projects which include the 2X660MW Port Qasim coal power plant (Read: "Port Qasim coal fired power plant" published Jun 27, 2016) and the 2X660MW Hubco coal based power plant in Hub, Balochistan which will be the focus of this issue. The majority of the prioritized energy portfolio consists of coal based power plants with an estimated total capacity of 7560 MW at an estimated cost of $10.3 billion.

The project company China Power Hub Generation Company (Pvt) Ltd (CPHGC) is a joint venture between Hub Power Holdings Limited (HPHL) which is a subsidiary of Hubco and China Power International (Pakistan) Investment Limited; a Hong Kong based company formed by China Power International Holdings Limited.

Currently, China Power International Holdings (CPIH) has been offered a 74% equity stake in the project. However as mentioned in its quarterly report for March, 2016 Hubco has the right to increase its equity from current 26% to 49% by the commercial operation date.

The notice to proceed (NTP) for the project was issued on 17 June, 2015 and the letter of intent (LOI) was processed on 29 June, 2015 by the PPIB. The generation license application was accepted by NEPRA in August, 2015 with the tariff acceptance being submitted in September. The LOS for the project has been issued on April 12, 2016.

The reference levelised tariff awarded to the project is 8.117 Rs/kWh with the project being foreign financed and using imported coal. The project cost will amount to approximately $2.4 billion and the financing mechanism will be a debt to equity ratio of 80:20.

The Environmental Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) has been completed and the NOC has been approved by the Balochistan Environment Protection Agency (BEPA) while the land request has also been processed by the government of Balochistan. The NOC for jetty construction is under process and the coal supplier negotiations are ongoing as well with South African and Indonesian companies.

The EPC contractors for the plant have been selected and the agreements have been signed whereas the EPC contractor for the coal jetty has also been finalised last month. Discussions are also underway for the processing of term sheets with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), China Development Bank (CDB) and EXIM Bank with CDB chosen as the lead arranger of financing for the project. The COD of the project is expected to be around 2018 for the operational of the first unit but the overall project completion date may be well extend to 2020.

Nepra grants licence to Hubco's coal-fired power project

KARACHI: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has granted licence to China Power Hub Generation Company (Private) Limited (CPHGCPL) for its proposed 1,320MW imported coal-fired power plant at Hub, Balochistan.

The licence has been awarded for thirty two years period as it is valid from September, 8, 2016 and will be expired on August, 30, 2048. The Hub Power Co (Hubco), the sponsors of the project, had applied in August 2015 requesting for the grant of generation licence incorporating special purpose vehicle in the name of CPHGCPL.

The power plant is to be located at about 20 KM from the center of Hub city, Mouza Kund, Tehsil Gadani, District Lasbella, in the Province of Balochistan.

The proposed project is joint venture of the Hubco and China Power International Holding Limited. In this regard CPHGCPL has submitted it is a separate legal entity and that land acquired by it and the land transferred by the Hubco must be addressed separately, said Nepra.

Before awarding the license, Nepra had sought stakeholders' comments while in this regard Board of Investment, Directorate General of Mines & Minerals, Government of Balochistan, Punjab Mineral Development Corporation, Ministry of Ports and Shipping and Port Qasim Authority supported the project and have no objection for the grant of generation license.

Similarly, Private Power Infrastructure Board (PPIB) supported the issuance of generation license and stated that it has issued Letter of Intent to the project company and the project is well on track to achieve commercial operation in 2018. PPIB further apprised that the project is included as 'actively promoted projects' in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) framework.

In comments on the proposed power project, National Transmission & Despatch Company (NTDC) said that a 500 KV double circuit transmission line from the Hubco to Matiari has been proposed for interconnection of the project with national grid and PC-I have been sent to planning commission for approval of the competent authority.

The Central Power Purchasing Agency Guarantee Limited (CPPA-G) commented that generation licence may be granted for development of the project. However, while approving the tariff the cost of land may be adjusted as the new coal fired plant is being developed on the existing site of 1200 MW RFO based power plant of the Hub Power Company Limited as the cost of land was already included in the Hub Power Company Limited 's RFO based plant.

However, Anwar Kamal Law Associates made serious reservation regarding performance of the Authority stating that the regulator has failed to remove the inefficiencies of the power sector. Further, the Associates highlighted different issues including issues of energy mix, poor performance of generation & distribution companies, high price of electricity, increased load shedding, long term power purchase agreements on take or pay basis, installation of imported coal based power plants in mid-country, coal transportation and logistics issues, surplus capacity, under utilization of power plants, induction of new plants on take or pay basis, economic merit order and market rules developed by NEPRA etc.

Two power plants of 1650 MW added under CPEC

http://dailytimes.com.pk/business/25...ded-under-cpec

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and China Power company inked agreements of 1320 MW coal-fired power plant that will be established in Hub, Balochistan, and 330 MW in Thar, Sindh.

Two coal-fired power plants having a capacity of 1650 MW will be under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Documents relating to power purchase agreement and implementation agreement were signed in Islamabad on Wednesday among China Power Hub Generation Company (HUBCO) and Private Power Infrastructure Board. Water and Power Minister Khawaja Asif, who was present on the occasion termed these projects a major milestone. He said the construction work on 1320 MW power plant in Hub has already begun and these two projects will be completed in 2019. This is demonstrative of the fact that the government is fully implementing projects to be completed after its present tenure keeping in view the future requirements of energy. The minister said that the Government is giving preference to use local coal from Thar for generating cheap electricity. He said these projects will open up a new chapter in the energy sector and in the coming years, Thar will be the centre of energy supply.

To a question, he said electricity shortfall has been decreased as a result of government measures and the demand, supply gap is narrowing down day by day. Khawaja Asif said over 100 MW of electricity is being generated through alternate energy sources.

He said that the construction work on Diamir Bhasha Dam will start this year. He said Munda Dam is also being revived and work on it will also start in the current year. Besides, he said work on small dams is going on particularly in Balochistan to preserve rainy water.

GE Equips new 1,320 MW Power Plant in Balochistan

GE is supplying Northwest Electric Power Design Institute Co. Ltd. (NWEPDI) and Tianjin Electric Power Construction Company (TEPC) with two units each of supercritical steam turbines, boilers and generators for the China Power Hub Generation Company (Pvt.) Limited (CPHGC) 1,320 megawatt (MW) Power Plant in District Hub, Balochistan, Pakistan.

CPHGC is a joint venture of China Power International Holdings Limited (CPIH) with Pakistan’s HUB Power Company (HUBCO).

The power plant’s construction has started and a ground breaking ceremony is expected on Tuesday, March 21. The facility is expected to enter commercial operations in 2019.

“We are proud to be the equipment, procurement and construction (EPC) partner for the CPHGC project, which will feed the Pakistani national grid, to the benefit of all sections of the community – households, cities, villages and industry,” said Zengqiang Liu, the GM of the NWEPDI-TEPC Consortium.

“We decided to opt for GE’s technologies because of their global expertise in manufacturing key equipment for coal-fired power plants and their proven track record in Pakistan,” he added.

CPHGC is one of the infrastructure ventures supported under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a large development mega project that aims to connect Port Gwadar in southern Pakistan to Xinjiang, China’s northwestern autonomous region, through transportation and energy networks.

The project will support the Government of Pakistan’s goals under Vision 2025 to increase access to electricity from 67 percent to over 90 percent of the population and spur faster socio-economic development by helping to meet a part of the current energy deficit. It will also help Pakistan diversify its energy mix and reduce dependence on expensive imported fuels such as oil and diesel, allowing the use of cheaper supplies of coal.

“With the sixth largest population in the world, Pakistan’s energy needs are large and growing,” said Dr. Sacha Parneix, Commercial General Manager for GE’s Steam Power Systems business in the Middle East, North Africa & Turkey (MENAT).

“Coal presents an opportunity to expand the alternative energy base in the country and reduce the per megawatt-hour costs of power generation. GE’s advanced solutions, based on modern supercritical technology, can support the utilization of this resource to provide efficient and reliable power at very competitive costs.”

“Meeting Pakistan’s growing energy needs will require efforts to draw on resources from across the energy mix, including coal, gas, oil, wind, hydro and other sources,” said Sarim Sheikh, President & CEO of GE Pakistan and Central Asia region. “GE is proud to work together with its partners and customers in the country and beyond to help utilize these different resources to secure Pakistan’s energy future.”

GE Power’s Steam Power Systems business is an industry leader that has installed 30 percent of the world’s steam turbine capacity and 30 percent of the world’s boilers. It offers smarter, cleaner steam power solutions, including air quality control systems technology that can be implemented at coal-fired power plants to remove up to 99% of air pollutants, helping to meet and exceed the world’s strictest regulations.

GE also recently announced its new global Powering Efficiency Center of Excellence (COE), which brings together cross-business experts in its energy businesses to apply a total plant hardware and software solution approach to boost the efficiency of the world’s new and existing coal-fired power plants and significantly reduce their emissions.Every point of efficiency reduces operating costs over the lifetime of the plant while also reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 2 percent.

GE has been a long-term partner in Pakistan’s progress for more than 50 years, creating over 400 employment opportunities in the country. Today, GE-built technologies can generate up to 25% of Pakistan’s electricity, while GE and its joint venture partners power more than 60% of the aircraft operated by Pakistani commercial carriers and GE Healthcare devices are installed in more than 70% of large hospitals across the country.

Some of the oldest power plants/locomotives still functioning are from GE. Quality comes at a cost :-D The other learning is that how Chinese companies are working so closely with American companies but on the other hand we see the experts selling chooran on TV about so much China-US propaganda ... it all comes down to economy.

There are also some other non GE plants in Pakistan that are in operation for more than 40 years. Karachi Nuclear Plant unit-1, Canadian technology, is still operating safely and efficiently.

Groundbreaking of 1,320MW power plant in Hub today

http://dailytimes.com.pk/business/21...t-in-hub-today

Karachi: The groundbreaking of 1,320 MW coal fired power plant in Hub, Balochistan will take place today (Tuesday). The project is being constructed by China Power Hub Generation Company (CPHGC) a joint venture project company setup by The Hub Power Company (HUBCO) and China Power International Holding Ltd (CPIH) with an estimated cost of approximately $2 billion, the project is one of the largest coal based power projects being constructed under China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Project will contribute 9 billion kWh of cheaper electricity annually into the National Grid, and it will support 4 million Pakistani household in yearly power consumption. High ranking Government Officials along with Chinese officials will perform the ground breaking of the project.

Currently, China Power International Holding Limited (CPIH) has 74% share while The Hub Power Company (HUBCO) has a 26% share in CPHGC. The project would consume an estimated 3.8 million tons of coal per annum. A Dedicated Jetty Terminal would also be constructed alongside the power plants to import coal directly to the plant from the sea. China Development Bank (CDB) is leading the Bank Consortium that is providing funding for this project.

The boiler units being used for this project are State of the Art Super Critical Technology based. This super critical technology is widely used in most of the developing countries to improve coal efficiency, to lower the cost of fuel and to cut down on emissions. In addition to that, Electro Static Precipitators (ESPs) are installed to control particulate matter emissions in this project.

Low NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) burners for burning of pulverized coal are specially designed to reduce NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) emission in comparison with other burners. CPHGC is employing all these technologies and will spend around 10% of project cost on these pollution control technologies. A detailed Environment and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) has been carried out at site. The site will follow all NEQS (National Environment Quality Standards) and IFC (International Finance Corporation) standards.

CEO of China Power Hub Generation Company (Pvt), Zhao Yonggang said that 1320 MW coal fired power project is largest power project being constructed in Balochistan under CPEC and it will bring immense socio-economic benefits for the country, specifically for the province of Balochistan. The province will receive a tremendous boost during the construction and the operation period of the project, which will last during the project life time. The project construction will provide opportunities through induction of skilled, semi-skilled and un-skilled workforce by Project Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors though sub-contractors during the construction period, he added.

In addition, other economic activities around the Project Site are also likely to witness a major increase. Various CSR programs for local community such as new schools, medical centers, basic infrastructure around Site and technical training programs are under development within its CSR budget. Every year after COD, some portion of the company's annual profit will be reserved as CSR fund for the betterment of the locals and province of Balochistan.

China Power International Holding Ltd (CPIH), a wholly-owned core enterprise of State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC), one of the five State Power Corporations in the Peoples Republic of China.

These furnace oil fired thermal GENCOs are blood suckers. I wish them dead asap. Perhaps bomb these insane monstrosities out of existence.

Operating such power plants should be declared crime against humanity.

Why bomb them.. why dont we give incentives (lets say a few percent extra tariff) to the company to convert them to LNG. in the longer run you would still save money as well as the environment.
