Three Wind Independent Power Producers (IPPs) have expressed their concerns about the prolonged delay in completing the transmission line from the Gharo Cluster. This delay is causing significant obstacles in their operations, leading to financial losses.

Hydrochina Dawood Power (Pvt) Limited, Zephyr Power Limited, and Tenaga Generasi Limited, collectively representing three wind power projects, have conveyed their concerns in a joint letter to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra). These concerns revolve around the difficulties faced in operating their wind power generation facilities in Gharo, Sindh.

The Wind Independent Power Projects (IPPs) sector has made a capital investment of over $3.5 billion in Pakistan. As the country strives to reduce its reliance on fuel imports and further invest in renewable energy, this investment is expected to grow. Ayaz Dawood, Kumayl Khaleeli, and Shamoon Chaudry have signed a joint letter emphasizing the Companies’ repeated attempts to communicate with the Central Power Purchasing Agency-Guaranteed (CPPA-G), urging improvements in the stability and evacuation capacity of the transmission infrastructure.

Regrettably, the CPPA-G has forwarded these letters to the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC), which, disappointingly, has not responded to any queries from either the CPPA-G or the Companies.
