660MW Hub Coal Power Plant Starts Operations

A major power project under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), with a producing capacity 660-MW electricity, was commissioned today.
The power project is fired by imported coal. According to China Power Hub Generation Company (CPHGC), it successfully synchronized one of its two 660MW coal-fired power plants with the national grid.
The company said the synchronization of the first unit was achieved ahead of schedule within the agreed technical parameters.
The CPHGC plant will add 9 billion kWh of electricity to the national grid every year after the start of commercial operation. 
The project is fired through imported coal and will operate with a total installed capacity of 1,320MW once the other unit is also completed.
The CPHGC said that it will complete the second 660MW unit within the stipulated time. The synchronisation of the second unit is scheduled by Aug 2019.
CPHGC Chief Executive Zhao Yonggang has appreciated the hard work and efforts of the company’s Pakistani and Chinese employees.
The two 660MW plants are among the priority projects under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. It is the first overseas thermal power project developed by State Power Investment Corporation under China’s Belt and Road Initiative, Zhao Yonggang added.
The project has been built in Hub, Balochistan Lasbella district.
It is a joint venture between China-Pakistan International Holding and the Hub Power Company Ltd (Hubco) with 74 percent and 26 percent ownership, respectively.
