PROJECT COMPLETION:

Port Qasim is a 2x660MW coal-fired power project. It is located in the Port Qasim Industrial Park, 37 km Southeast of Karachi. It comprises two units with total gross capacity of 1320 MW (with integrated self-use Jetty) and an average annual energy output of around 9000GWh, able to support 3-4 million families’ power consumption for a year. Fueled by imported coal.

The environment-friendly operations including seawater desalination and flue gas desulfurisation, satisfying the environmental standards of the World Bank.

The generated power will be evacuated through a 180km-long 500KV AC transmission line connecting the project with the national grid. The construction period of the project is 36 months.

“The total investment of the project is approximately $2.085 billion. The ratio of equity is approximately 25 per cent, while the rest will be arranged by the sponsors through debt financing from the Import-Export Bank of China (China EXIM Bank),” said He Shiyou, the assistant general manager of the Port Qasim Electric Power Company while talking to Pakistan Today.

“This arrangement does not increase the financial burden on the government of Pakistan. Rather this burden will have to be borne by the companies involved,” he clarified.

REGISTRATION OF INDENTURE OF LEASE

Pursuant to the agreement dated April 23rd, 2015 signed between Port Qasim Authority and the company, approximately 200 acres of land in the Eastern Zone of Port Qasim has been allotted to the project.

It is clearly stated in the PQA Agreement that “PQA shall have good marketable and completely unencumbered lawful title to the site including all easements and rights of way”.

The Powerchina has paid all the fees, levies, and stamp duties to relevant authorities of the government of Sindh and approached the Registrar to register Indenture of Lease in accordance with the regulations stipulated by the Sindh Board of Revenue.

However, the officials of the Board of Revenue are dragging their feet by raising objections, claiming that the 200-acre land belongs to the GoS and PQA is not entitled to lease it.


WATER SUPPLY:

A coordination meeting for water supply to the Project was held on November 11, 2015 in Karachi. The Karachi Water and Sewage Board (KW&SB), Engro-chemical plant near the project site, and the Powerchina company entered into a tripartite agreement for water supply on December 2, 2015.

Under the deal, water had to be provided to the project on the condition that a no objection certificate (NOC) was issued by the government of Sindh. The internal pipe network of the project has been completed, but the Sindh government has not issued the NOC despite repeated requests.

Below is the Satellite view for this project. This is bit old as Google Earth has not been updated for this location since December 2015. Notice the similarity with other coal project in Sahiwal. Not sure if done by same company although both are part of the CPEC. Coordinates are as follow, in case someone wants to Google.

24°47'02.32" N 67°22'09.82" E

That kind of prayer ritual at the event of inauguration of projects is cultural norm here. It is not to define who believes what. We are in the habit of shoving our overflowing religious chauvinism in every damn thing we do.

I wonder why this is slower than the one in Sahiwal ... the cooling tower isn't half erected at the moment and in Sahiwal - they are almost half way on the second one.

It erected halfway in just one month, you can compare it with recent update and one month old update.
