Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): imported


According to a June 2014 article in Business Recorder, Asiapak Investments (J Energy Pvt Ltd Pakistan) and Dongfang Electric Corporation signed a Memorandum of Agrement to build a 1,320-megawatt (MW) coal plant comprising six 220 MW units at Bin Qasim, Karachi. The project was aimed at commercial operation in the first quarter of 2018. Asiapak was also partnering with international companies to establish coal import and handling infrastructure at Port Qasim with 10 million tonnes per annum throughput capacity.[1]

More recent news on this project is not available. It is possible that this project became or was superseded by the Port Qasim EPC power station project.
