CPHGC has selected two of the industry’s most powerful enterprises in China as its EPC contractors. They are NWEPDI (North West Electric Power Design Institute) & TEPC (Tianjin Electric Power Construction) Consortium for power plant EPC, and CHEC (China Harbor Engineering Company Ltd.) for Jetty EPC, the later one has operated in Pakistan for the last 20 years.
The fuel of the project will be imported coal from South Africa and Indonesia. The jetty and the coal transhipment facility which are under construction will be able to provide up to 4.3 MTPA of coal to the plant. The jetty will be connected to the shoreline through a trestle and causeway.
According to the Upfront Tariff, CPHGC’s power project would produce energy at an estimated cost of around 8 cents per Kwh which is cheaper than the current cost of energy production in Pakistan. This will save hundreds of millions of dollars for the country every year and industries and public would also benefit by the lower energy bills.
