Lakhra mine-to-mouth power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Pakistan and coal.|
Lakhra mine-to-mouth power station is a proposed 450-megawatt (MW) coal plant in Sindh province, Pakistan.
The map below shows the area of the Lakhra coal mines, in Jamshoro district, Sindh province. The coal plant would be a mine-to-mouth coal plant located in this area.
According to Smith Cogeneration's website, the company was developing a 450 MW mine-mouth coal-fired power plant based upon indigenous lignite coal. The facility would be Pakistan's first power plant based upon an indigenous commercially operational coal mine. Smith received a Letter of Intent for this project and was expecting a Letter of Support pending review by the government of Pakistan. However, the project is now "inactive." This project was listed in a 2004 government report, and thus may have been defunct for quite a while.
