Wow... Great news.... But one thing why have the chosen Sahiwal which is a very fertile land? They could have chosen some area that is more barren like Bahawalpur or Multan etc. so that very good agricultural land might not be used.... But anyways it is an excellent news for Pakistan.

One thing: The power plants need to be built on the bank of rivers or perennial canals. I think abundant and constant supply of water is essential for cooling / temperature control of the power plants. we dont have constant water sources in bahawalpur. Sutlej remains dry most of the times and no 365 day canal there.

2nd thing: The power plants should be maximum possible near to major cities & industrial areas. Otherwise transmission lines would cost more.

3rd thing: I dont know the exact location, but if it is being built on bank of river ravi, that land would most probably be a waste land right now.

I was wondering if coal-fired power plants is the right way for Pakistan to move forward and if it is used wordwide... Then I came to the following link.... It states that 41% of total power generated worldwide is via coal-fired plants...This table shows some of the most coal-fired electricity generators of the world.

So Go on Nawaz Sharif.... This is the fastest and easiest way to create electricity and if we will fully exploit the Thar coal reserves then this will be the cheapest electricity produced (As compared to Nuclear, Gas and Petrol based electricity generation).

I heard there are coal deposits near Sahiwal? If so, this is will be awesome!
Total coal deposits in Punjab are 235 million tonnes (for comparison Sindh has 184 Billion tonnes). 213 million in the eastern salt range (Khushab, Khewra, Dandot) and 22 million in Makarwal (Mianwali). Both are sub-bituminous but not sure if anyone is going to invest in them.

Local coal deposits are small, and low quality. Even the Thar blocks being developed by Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company will not online before 2018-9. Punjab Power Development Board says, and NEPRA agrees wit them, that coal fired power plants will have to run on imported coal for the time being (same for Gadani's Pakistan Power Park). Even the cement industry is using imported coal. The cost is not too high and replaces oil which has added benefit beyond reduction in electricity tarriff as the import bill reduces + rail freight gets a big boom.

Here's a brief of the coal needs for the Sahiwal power plants planned (from Punjab Energy Department docs)



Upfront tarriff from NEPRA for both local and imported coal (valid upto late 2019 plant commissions)



Primary local coal source - already in use - is from Lakhra deposits in Sindh.
