engro powergen limited
Engro Powergen was incorporated in 2008, as a fully owned subsidiary, to develop power projects in Pakistan so as to help reduce the power shortage in the country and earn a competitive return for shareholders.
The Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company Limited is a joint venture between the Government of Sindh and Engro Powergen, to mine coal from Thar Block II. Although the project is in its early stages of technical and economic feasibility assessments, the Company aims to utilize the ample reserves of coal in Thar Desert for power generation.
Engro Powergen seeks to reduce Pakistan’s power shortage through exploring and implementing cleaner, efficient and economic methods of power generation. In this pursuit wind, hydro and solar power projects are being actively assessed as alternative energy options for Pakistan.
Engro Powergen Qadirpur Limited, another Engro Corporation subsidiary, has established a 220 MW power plant in Qadirpur. This will be Engro’s first Independent Power Project (IPP) which will utilize permeate gas, currently being flared from the Qadirpur gas field thus helping reduce carbon emissions. This power plant will be one of the first ‘green’ power plants in the country.
