GE is supplying Northwest Electric Power Design Institute Co. Ltd. (NWEPDI) and Tianjin Electric Power Construction Company (TEPC) with two units each of supercritical steam turbines, boilers and generators for the China Power Hub Generation Company (Pvt.) Limited (CPHGC) 1,320 megawatt (MW) Power Plant in District Hub, Balochistan, Pakistan. CPHGC is a joint venture of China Power International Holdings Limited (CPIH) with Pakistan’s Hub Power Company (HUBCO). The power plant’s construction has started and a groundbreaking ceremony is expected on Tuesday, March 21. The facility is expected to enter commercial operations in 2019.

“We are proud to be the equipment, procurement and construction (EPC) partner for the CPHGC project, which will feed the Pakistani national grid, to the benefit of all sections of the community households, cities, villages and industry,” said Zengqiang Liu, the GM of the NWEPDI-TEPC Consortium. “We decided to opt for GE’s technologies because of their global expertise in manufacturing key equipment for coal-fired power plants and their proven track record in Pakistan.”

CPHGC is one of the infrastructure ventures supported under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a large development megaproject that aims to connect Port Gwadar in southern Pakistan to Xinjiang, China’s northwestern autonomous region, through transportation and energy networks. The project will support the Government of Pakistan’s goals under Vision 2025 to increase access to electricity from 67 percent to over 90 percent of the population and spur faster socio-economic development by helping to meet a part of the current energy deficit. It will also help Pakistan diversify its energy mix and reduce dependence on expensive imported fuels such as oil and diesel, allowing the use of cheaper supplies of coal.

“With the sixth largest population in the world, Pakistan’s energy needs are large and growing,” said Dr. Sacha Parneix, Commercial General Manager for GE’s Steam Power Systems business in the Middle East, North Africa & Turkey (MENAT). “Coal presents an opportunity to expand the alternative energy base in the country and reduce the per megawatt-hour costs of power generation. GE’s advanced solutions, based on modern supercritical technology, can support the utilization of this resource to provide efficient and reliable power at very competitive costs.”

“Meeting Pakistan’s growing energy needs will require efforts to draw on resources from across the energy mix, including coal, gas, oil, wind, hydro and other sources,” said Sarim Sheikh, President & CEO of GE Pakistan and Central Asia region. “GE is proud to work together with its partners and customers in the country and beyond to help utilize these different resources to secure Pakistan’s energy future.”

GE Power’s Steam Power Systems business is an industry leader that has installed 30 percent of the world’s steam turbine capacity and 30 percent of the world’s boilers. It offers smarter, cleaner steam power solutions, including air quality control systems technology that can be implemented at coal-fired power plants to remove up to 99% of air pollutants, helping to meet and exceed the world’s strictest regulations.

GE also recently announced its new global Powering Efficiency Center of Excellence (COE), which brings together cross-business experts in its energy businesses to apply a total plant hardware and software solution approach to boost the efficiency of the world’s new and existing coal-fired power plants and significantly reduce their emissions. Every point of efficiency reduces operating costs over the lifetime of the plant while also reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 2 percent.

GE has been a long-term partner in Pakistan’s progress for more than 50 years, creating over 400 employment opportunities in the country. Today, GE-built technologies can generate up to 25% of Pakistan’s electricity, while GE and its joint venture partners power more than 60% of the aircraft operated by Pakistani commercial carriers and GE Healthcare devices are installed in more than 70% of large hospitals across the country.
