LAHORE: The first consignment of a 320-megawatt dual-fuel power plant, gifted by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has arrived in Pakistan. The entire plant is scheduled to reach the country in three phases by the end of October. The plant comprises five frames each of 16MW and eight frames each of 30MW.

According to a statement issued on Wednesday, the UAE government had promised to donate a power plant to help the government of Pakistan to increase power generation.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on February 4 last year between the Pakistan Electric Power Company (Pepco) and Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (ADWEA) envisaging the commissioning of the 320MW power plant in Pakistan.

Pepco has already taken a decision with the approval of the government that the plant will be installed adjacent to the Gas Turbine Station, Nishatabad in Faisalabad where enough land and necessary infrastructure are already available.
