Pakistan - Zorlu Enerji is the first wind energy company to sign agreement on establishing wind farm in Pakistan

The Zorlu Enerji wind farm would be one of the cleanest power plants in the country displacing 10,500 tons of carbon dioxide every year

Zorlu Enerji, the first company to establish wind farm for power generation in Pakistan, on Saturday signed Energy Purchase Agreement with Hyderabad Electric Supply Corporation for purchase of 6 MW electricity generated at the company’s facility in Jhimpir.

The agreement was signed by Mr. Murat Sungar Bursa, President Zorlu Enerji, on behalf of Zorlu Eneji and Mr. Karim Buksh Qureshi, CEO HESCO representing HESCO.

Pakistan’s Minister of Water & Power, Raja Pervez Ashraf and Turkish Ambassador Mr. Engin Soysal attended the signing ceremony.

The signing of Energy Purchase Agreement between the IPP and HESCO took the country further closer to towards exploitation of its vast wind energy resource for meeting its growing energy needs.

NEPRA has awarded tariff of U.S. scents 12.1057 per KWh, which is cheaper than the electricity generated from thermal sources. The power generated from the first phase would be evacuated to Jhimphir grid station by HESCO and would be sufficient to electrify 6900 homes in Hyderabad region.

The Zorlu Enerji wind farm would be one of the cleanest power plants in the country displacing 10,500 tons of carbon dioxide every year, as compared to a fossil fuel power plant. Harnessing the strong winds coming from south west, the wind farm is first commercial wind power project of the country, comprising 5 towers in the first phase with an installed capacity of 1.2 MW wind turbine generator per tower.

The project, which in subsequent phases would be expanded to a 50 MW wind farm, is currently using gearless vensys 62 with 1.2 MW technology.

Pakistan has considered a potential of wind energy in the coastal belt of Sindh and Balochistan as well as in the desert areas of Punjab and Sindh.
