Engro Energy Qadirpur Limited

green power – it’s all about going green

Incorporated in 2008 as a subsidiary to develop power projects in Pakistan, Engro Energy is Engro Corp’s first initiative into the country’s power sector. Our aim is to ease the burden on the nation’s energy sector by developing projects exploring cleaner, more efficient and economically viable sources of power generation including wind, hydro and solar energy. Engro Energy Limited owns and operates Engro Energy Qadirpur Limited, a 217 megawatt power plant and the group’s first initiative in the power sector of Pakistan. Engro Energy Qadirpur Limited was listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange in October 2014 where 25% of the shares were offered. As of now Engro Energy Qadirpur Limited is 69% owned by Engro Corp via Engro Energy whereas the remainder is owned by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and employees.

Our first Independent Power Project (IPP) and unique concept in energy conservation – the 217 MW power plant in Qadirpur is presently the only green facility of its kind in Pakistan to utilize permeate gas for reduced carbon emissions. The only gas based Independent Power Project in Pakistan to reach completion within the stipulated time frame, the Engro Energy Qadirpur plant has opened new doors of opportunity for investors hailing from Pakistan’s private and public sectors.

This project is very unique in a way that it utilizes high sulfur gas which was being flared through Qadirpur Gas Field for almost a decade. This energy conservation idea showed the waste gas a right path to burn. This is a one + 1 + one configuration dual fuel fired combined cycle power plant with a 123 MW Gas T Turbine, 400 tons/hour Heat Recovery Steam Generator and 110 MW Steam Turbine.

As we forge ahead, Engro Energy Qadirpur will continue to pave the way for brighter living with investments aimed at boosting the nation’s energy sector, preserving the environment, inspiring new innovations and forming lasting changes within the communities that we engage with.
