Implementation Agreement Pakistan

The AI was originally signed on June 25, 1995 between RPPL and GOP. This agreement was amended and confirmed on 31 March 1996, the AI defines the rights and responsibilities of the RPPL and the GOP for the development, construction and operation of the project. The signing of the implementation agreement would pave the way for the timely commissioning of the project. The 1,320 MW power plants would be connected to the Matiari-Lahore (high voltage continuous current) project of 660 kilovolts. PPIB is implementing the transmission line project, which is currently under construction and is expected to be operational by March 2021, under the CPEC. The company said in a statement to the London Stock Exchange that the agreement provided for the creation of an ad hoc entity for the development and implementation of the two projects, which would be financed at 75 percent and 25 percent equity. Private Power and Infrastructure Board (PPIB) has entered into an agreement with Thar Coal Block-I Power Generation Company Limited (TCB-I) to build and operate a 1,320 MW coal-fired power plant in Thar. Shah Jahan Mirza, CEO of the PPIB, signed the agreement with TCB-I CEO Meng Donghai. The contract for the Aerating of the CPEC project has already been implemented. Shanghai Electric Group Company would provide financing for the project and hoped to begin power generation by March 2021. Sino Sindh Resources Limited would be responsible for supplying coal to the plant, as the company already operates coal from Thar`s Block I coal basin. The 1,320 MW coal-fired power plant would be coupled with the Matiari-Lahore HG transmission line (high voltage continuous current).

This would result in an annual saving of 75 billion euros. With the joint development contract, Beijing Jingneng Power Company Limited and PowerChina International Group Limited were sold, while China National Coal Development Company Limited held 73 percent and Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook`s private office Juma Al Maktoum 15 percent of the project. Oracle`s share would remain intact at 12 percent. The contract to purchase electricity from the project has already been executed. Based on modern supercritical technology, the project is being developed under the auspices of the Sino-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Shanghai Electric Group Company is the main sponsor which is expected to start in March 2021, while TCB-I is the company of the project. ISLAMABAD: The Private Power and Infrastructure Board (PPIB) signed an implementation agreement with a Chinese consortium on Monday to develop and operate a $1.9 billion coal-fired power plant with a production capacity of 1,320 megawatts. “The exploration of Thar coal is opening a new chapter in Pakistan`s energy history and PPIB has successfully completed this with the implementation of six other 4,290 MW Thar coal-based energy projects, which are at various stages of development,” he said in a statement. Naheed Memon, Oracle`s Chief Executive Officer, said the two partners bring the necessary know-how, financial resources and global presence to ensure that a project of this magnitude can be implemented. “Our new partners share Oracle`s vision and can see the truly transformative effects that the development of the Thar VI block can offer,” Memon said in a statement.

Energy Minister Omar Ayub Khan, who is also president of the PPIB, attended the signing ceremony and praised the PPIB`s efforts to speed up the treatment of independent electricity producers on the basis of indigenous fuels. GOP guarantees WAPDA and PSO performance obligations under AAE and GSA. Meanwhile, British energy developer Oracle Power has announced two new partners for the development of a surface mine and a 1,320 megawatt mine plant in the Thar VI coal block.
