Access to reliable, affordable and uninterrupted supply of energy is the key to economic growth and welfare of any society. Unfortunately, Pakistan is in the middle of a major socio-economic crisis because of non-availability of electricity on a sustained and affordable basis. The crisis is basically caused by major supply side constraints. Analysts are of the view that energy demand in Pakistan has increased four-fold in the last 25 years; it is expected to increase eight-fold by 2030, and by a factor of 20 in the year 2050.
To achieve energy autarky in Pakistan, the country needs massive investment in power generation and associated infrastructure. The vision statement of National Energy Policy 2013 outlines that: “Pakistan will develop the most efficient and consumer-centric power generation, transmission, and distribution system that meets the needs of its population and boosts its economy in a sustainable and affordable manner.”
In line with its policy, the Government of Pakistan took an unprecedented initiative to inject 2400 MW into the national system through its own resources. National Power Parks Management Company Private Limited was established and entrusted with the task to give shape to this resolve of the Government under the auspices of Ministry of Water & Power. The company immediately took up the task and now is in the Process of establishing two state of the art Re-gasified Liquid Natural Gas (RLNG) based Combined Cycle Power Plants; 1223 MW CCPP at Balloki, District Kasur and 1230 MW CCPP at Haveli Bahadur Shah, Jhang. These state of the art plants are providing cheap electricity to the national grid owing to their unparalleled latest technology and high efficiency. Engineering Procurement & Construction (EPC) contracts for both the projects were awarded in the last quarter of 2015 and Operation and Maintenance (O &M) contracts for both plants were awarded within 18 month of ground breaking.
Haveli Bahadur Shah began combined cycle commercial operations on 9th May, 2018 and Balloki achieved Combined cycle COD on July 29th 2018.
The company has its offices in Lahore and Islamabad.
