ISLAMABAD, July 6 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz
Sharif will inaugurate the supply of 760 megawatt of
electricity from first unit of Haveli Bahadur Shah Power Plant
at District Jhang on Friday.
The project is a Combined Cycle Power Plant with a total

Engineering Pvt Ltd of Pakistan jointly completed the
project.
The world’s most efficient and state-of-the-art-
technology has been used in the project which guaranteed
efficiency of the plant at 62.44% on LNG. Moreover, a saving
of Rs 57 billion has been achieved in the project cost when
compared to the upfront tariff given by NEPRA.
A transparent procurement process was ensured through
international competitive bidding and PPRA laws for the award
of EPC contract for the project that resulted in securing one
of the lowest EPC cost per megawatt.
An annual saving of Rs 2 billion would be made through
optimum operations and management cost. Haveli Bahadur Shah
Power Plant Project has also set the record of fastest gas
turbine installation from arrival of turbines on site i.e. 94
days for Turbine No 1 and 73 days for Turbine No 2.
The project is environment friendly with minimum impact
