Tenaga Generasi Limited (TGL), a Malaysian company, was incorporated
in Pakistan in 2004 for the purpose of setting up a 50MW Wind Power Plant.
The company was allocated 1200 acres of inter-tidal land for setting up of
the plant in KhutiKun area, District Gharo, Sindh. NEPRA issued a Generation License
to TGL with an initial validity of 20 years. Subsequently, in January 2008, the company decided to exit Pakistan and TGL was acquired by Dawood Lawrencepur Limited(DLL). TGL is now a subsidiary of Dawood Lawrencepur Limited (DLL).
Following the purchase, Alternate Energy Development Board(AEDB) in April 2008 increased the land allocation to 4881 acres. This land is sufficient for setting up a 100MW wind farm. The current development plan envisages the setting up of a 50MW wind farm in the first phase, which would then be increased to 100MW.
The wind power projects are being regulated by the Renewable Energy Policy
of the Government. The land is being allocated by AEDB in the Wind Corridor located
in the Sindh region as this corridor provides location near major load centers and has
ready availability of requisite infrastructure. The applicable tariff is determined
by NEPRA. Currently the Feed-in Tariff regime is being applied.
The first 50MW wind farm is based on the GE 1.6-82.5 wind turbines and will provide power to the national grid at 132kV. Construction has commenced following the financial close in 2015, and it is estimated that the commercial operation will be achieved in Quarter 4, 2016.
