KESC signs two contracts with international vendors

Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has signed two additional strategic contracts with international vendors, for its generation fleet, according to a statement on Tuesday.

These service agreements are aimed at augmenting the generation capacity and enhancing the efficiency of KESC’s Combined Cycle Power Plant at Korangi. The agreement also ensures the provision of OEM maintenance spares for its plants in SITE and Korangi, it said.

KESC has signed a contract for the efficiency and capacity improvement project, with the Slovakian-based Istroenergo Group (IEG), which is well known for providing worldwide professional, technical and scientific services in the field of power generation.

According to contract details, KESC will convert two open cycle gas turbines at its CCPP-II Korangi into combined cycle operation, it said. IEG is the same company, which had earlier designed the Phase-I of engineering, procurement and construction work of this power plant and would now execute the current, strategically important closing cycle project at a cost of Rs4 billion in a period of 18 months, according to the statement.

The project would add 27MW generation capacity to the Combined Cycle Power Plant at Korangi; enhancing its total capacity from 220MW to 247MW and, at the same time, increase the complex efficiency from 42 percent to 45 percent. Simultaneously, KESC has also signed a five-year maintenance spares supply agreement (MSA) with OES General Electric Jenbacher for its GEJB gas engines plants at Korangi and SITE areas.

KESC has made strategic investment to secure these agreements with the core objective to increase efficiencies and availability of its generation fleet, it added.
