engro powergen qadirpur limited

    green energy for a cleaner Pakistan

    Engro Energy Limited owns and operates Engro Powergen Qadirpur Limited, a 217 MW combined cycle power plant and the first green facility in Pakistan to utilize permeate gas for reduced carbon emissions. Under this project, a gas turbine of 127 MW (GE) and a steam turbine of 100 MW (GE) have been installed. It is the only gas based Independent Power Project in Pakistan to reach completion within the stipulated time frame. 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.

    This project is unique in a way that it utilizes high sulfur gas which was being flared through Qadirpur Gas Field for almost a decade. It converts this sulfur into electric power. This energy conservation idea showed the waste gas a right path to burn. This is a 1+1+1 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. The plant uses permeate gas as its primary fuel source and HSD as backup fuel. The unique fuel usage, which was previously being flared, makes Engro Powergen Qadirpur Limited one of the lowest opportunity cost thermal power plants in the country.

    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.
