CPEC mega project achieves yet another milestone today

ISLAMABAD – China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project achieves yet another milestone today.

The 1320 MW coal-fired power plant of the China Power Hub Generation Company (Pvt) Ltd (CPHGC), being constructed in Hub has achieved a major milestone.

It has been interconnected with Pakistan’s National Grid.

It achieved back energization of its 500KV GIS from Jamshoro side of the transmission lines.

With this achievement, CPHGC has officially entered into hot commissioning phase of the complex that would lead to synchronization of its 1st Unit with the National Grid in December 2018.

The process of power back-feeding was completed after a series of key steps such as line connection, site acceptance tests, high pressure test of GIS, injection test and inter tripping test all witnessed by relevant regulatory authorities. The whole operation was completed safely and all the parameters of the relevant grid equipment were found within normal limits.

After energizing the 500KV system, CPHGC has achieved energization of start-up transformer and 10 kV auxiliary power system, and preparing for the system commissioning of Unit 1.

The milestone was achieved in collaboration with the production and technology departments of CPHGC and National Transmission & Dispatch Company (NTDC).
