Karachi: According to Project Manager Lv Guanghua, the Master Green 50MW Wind Power project, which was completed by Hydro China International Engineering Firm, a member company of Power China, would provide 168 million kWh of clean energy per year to Pakistan.
The plant, which is located in Sindh’s Jamshoro District, reached COD on August 20 and has a reliability running test availability of 99.86 percent, which is significantly more than the 85 percent required by the local power purchase agreement.
The Master Green Project, which began on September 3, 2019, uses a total of 25 Siemens Gamesa 2MW double-fed wind turbines. It is the first wind power project built under Pakistan’s new round of energy price policy, and the first one to be completed, according to Lv in an interview with China Economic Net.
Throughout the construction period, the Pakistani partners displayed an exceptional level of construction schedule preparation, impressing their Chinese counterparts as well. Hydro China was able to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 infection and complete the assignment on schedule thanks to the close cooperation of people from both sides. These projects will be able to supply 1.32 billion kilowatt-hours of green power per year if completed.
A number of wind power projects in series are also being built. According to Mr. Cheng Qiang, Chief Representative of Hydro China in Pakistan, these projects are projected to be connected to the grid between the end of 2021 and March 2022.
