FFC Energy Limited announced to have developed Pakistan’s first 50 MW wind power project at Jhimpir, District Thatta in Sindh.

Established with an investment of USD 134 million the grid interconnection facilities for this project were energized on October 30th 2012 whereby the wind farm is now connected with the national grid. This major milestone was achieved by coordinated efforts of CPPA/NTDC, HESCO and FFCEL. The project is thus ready to play a revolutionary role in strengthening Pakistan’s wind power sector.

Brig Tariq Izaz (Retd) project director said that “All 33 individual wind turbine generators and ultimately the commissioning of the whole wind farm commenced from November 7 and FFCEL expects to begin commercial operations by mid December 2012.”

The project was kicked off in 2009. Erection of all 33 wind turbine generators was successfully completed by July. By mid August, all civil, mechanical and electrical works related to the grid interconnection facility were completed. In August, the 132 KV switchyard pre commissioning was completed and was commissioned in October.

Subsequently, on November 1, a 22kV substation got commissioned. Multiple commissioning teams, foreign and local, are present at the site to complete all the remaining wind farm commissioning activities.
