Wind Farm Project

Emission Reduction from Grid Connected 49.5MW Wind Power Plant.

PROJECT GOALS

Green Power production from Grid Connected 49.5MW Wind Power Plant

Tenaga Generasi Limited together with Pact Capital AG invested in a new wind power plant to generate renewable electricity to feed it into the Pakistani grid. The use of wind power for electricity generation reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to the conventional power generation mix in Pakistan.

The 49.5 MW wind farm provides 126 GWh of electricity per year – a yearly saving of 80,000 tons of CO2. The project is located at Deh Khuttikun, in the Sindh region, in Pakistan.

PROJECT BENEFITS & SDGS

The Project Will Serve to:

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Help in stimulating the growth of the wind power industry in Pakistan.

Create local employment during the construction and operation phases.

Reduce other pollutants resulting from the Pakistani power generation industry.

Reduce the increasing energy deficit in Pakistan, differentiate the electricity generation mix and reduce import dependency.

Project Challenge

Challenge

The objective of the project is to generate renewable electricity using wind energy and supply the electricity generated to the National Transmission & Dispatch Company (NTDC) of Pakistan. The electricity generated by the project will thus displace the equivalent amount of electricity generated by the operation of existing, fossil-fuelled grid connected power plants and reduce the emissions of the country’s power mix.

Project Actions

Actions Taken

Tenaga Generasi Limited together with Pact Capital AG invested in a new wind power plant to generate renewable electricity to feed it into the Pakistani grid. The use of wind power for electricity generation reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to the conventional generation mix in Pakistan.

The implementation of this project stimulates and commercializes the use of grid connected renewable energy technologies in Pakistan, increases Pakistan`s independence from energy imports, and demonstrates the viability of grid connected wind farms which can support energy security, improved air quality, alternative sustainable energy sources, improved local livelihoods and the development of a sustainable renewable energy industry.

Project Results

Results

The 49.5 MW wind farm provides 126 GWh of electricity per year – a yearly saving of 80,000 tons of CO2.

This wind power project replaces the consumption of fossil fuels and thereby contributes to the conservation of water, soil, flora and fauna. It provides the future generations’ energy stemming from renewable resources, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions occurring from extraction, processing, transportation and burning of fossil fuels.

The project accelerates the growth of the wind power industry in the country and thereby encourages other businesses to invest in wind power generation. Additionally, the project reduces Pakistan’s import dependency, especially in natural gas.
