Pakistan: Total Power Generation Capacity 20678. Demand: 14,500 MW. Why the Load Shedding Then?

Post by muhammadmohsinali » Mon Mar 05, 2012 9:42 pm

Electricity produced in Pakistan is from three main sources.1. Hydal 2. Thermal (Gas/Steam/Furnace Oil)3. NuclearThere are four major power producers in country:1. WAPDA (Water & Power Development Authority), 2. KESC (Karachi Electric Supply Company), 3. IPPs (Independent Power Producers) 4. PAEC (Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission).The break-up of the installed capacity of each of these power producers is as follows:WAPDAa. WAPDA Hydel Tarbela 3478 MW Mangla 1000 MW Malakand 20 MW Ghazi – Barotha 1450 MW Warsak 243 MW Chashma 184 MW Dargai 20 MW Khan Khwar 72MW Rasul 22 MW Shadi-Waal 18 MW Chichoki 13 MW Nandi pur 14 MW Kurram Garhi 4 MW Renala 1 MW Chitral 1 MW Total Hydel 6,540 MW WAPDA Thermal Gas Turbine Power Station, Shahdra 59 MW Steam Power Station, Faisalabad 132 MW Gas Turbine Power Station, Faisalabad 244 MW Gas Power Station, Multan 195 MW Thermal Power Station, Muzaffargarh 1350 MW Thermal Power Station, Guddu 1655 MW Gas Turbine Power Station, Kotri 174 MW Thermal Power Station, Jamshoro 850 MW Thermal Power Station, Larkana 150 MW Thermal Power Station, Quetta 35 MW Gas Turbine Power Station, Panjgur 39 MW Thermal Power Station, Pasni 17 MW Total Thermal 4811 MWWAPDA’s Total Hydel + Thermal capacity is = 11,351 MW Karachi Electric Supply CompanyThermal Power Station, Korangi 316 MW Gas Turbine Power Station, Korangi 214 MW Gas Turbine Power Station, SITE 100 MW Thermal Power Station, Bin Qasim 1260 MWTotal (KESC) 1890 MWIndependent Power Producers (IPPs)Hub Power Project 1292 MW AES Lalpir Ltd, Mahmood Kot Muzaffargar 362 MW AES Pak Gen, Mahmood Kot Muzaffargar 365 MW Altern Energy Ltd, Attock 29 MW Fauji Kabirwala Power Company, Khanewal 157 MW Gul Ahmad Energy Ltd, Korangi 136 MW Habibullah Coastal Power Limited 140 MW Japan Power Generation, Lahore 120 MW Kohenoor Energy Limited, Lahore 131 MW Liberty Power Limited, Ghotki 232 MW Rousch Power, Khanewal 412 MW Saba Power Company, Sheikhupura 114 MW Southern Electric Power Company Limited, Raiwind 135 MW Tapal Energy Limited, Karachi 126 MW Uch Power Limited, Dera Murad Jamali, Nasirabad 586 MW Attock Gen Limited, Morgah Rawalpindi 165 MW Atlas Power, Sheikhupura 225 MW Engro Energy Limited, Karachi —– MW Kot Addu Power Company Limited (Privatized) 1638 MW Rental PP 285 MWTotal (IPPs) 6650 MWPakistan Atomic Energy CommissionKANUPP 137 MW CHASNUPP-1 325 MW CHASNUPP-2 325MWTotal (Nuclear) 787 MW Hydel electricity generated by WAPDA varies between two extremities, i.e., between minimum of 2,414 MW and maximum of 6,761 MW depending upon the river flow.Total Power Generation Capacity of Pakistan (including all sources) is 19,855 MW and the electricity demand is 14,500 MW and PEPCO is merely generating 10,000 MW.So it is obvious that 15-20 hrs power shutdowns in most parts of the country are not because of the lack of generation capacity but due to the incompetency of the present government. The Power generation companies are not buying furnace oil from PSO by saying they don’t have money to do that but Pakistanis are all paying for electricity that is generated from furnace oil. This is the reason that top refineries like PRL are operating at 40% of their capacities.

ziam bai current Nuclear Power Generation is as follow:KANUPP, Karachi is a single unit CANDU PHWR with a total gross capacity of 137 Mega Watts. CHASNUPP-1 is a two-loop PWR plant with gross output of 325 MWe & net output of 300 MWe and life span of 40 years.Chashma Nuclear Power Plant 2 is still under constuction The Chashma Nuclear Power Plant Unit-1 (CHASNUPP-2) is located near the Chashma Barrage It has become operational and will pump 330 MWs into the national grid to help meet the country’s growing energy demands. the completion of Chashma-2 three months ahead of schedule without any additional cost was a reward for the joint efforts of the Chinese and Pakistani teams, the benefits of which will go directly to the people of Pakistan.
