2nd Unit of China Power Hub company synchronized with national grid

The Unit 2 of the 660MW coal-fired power plant being built by China Power Hub Generation Company (Private) Limited has been successfully synchronized with the national grid. Both the Units of CPHGC are now providing electricity to the Pakistan national grid on pre-commissioning trial basis.
Located in Hub, Balochistan, the CPHGC Project is a Joint Venture Company between CPIH (the Chinese state-owned company) that owns 74 percent and HUBCO that owns 26 percent. The Project despite a hefty cost, has adopted supercritical technology for environment protection. This technology requires reduced coal consumption and has lower carbon emissions thus providing energy-conservation and environmental protection.

The $2 billion project includes a power plant and a dedicated coal Jetty. During commercial operations, the project will provide 9 billion kWh of electricity to the national grid every year which will meet the electricity needs of 4 million households in Pakistan.
