Korean solar energy in Quetta on the anvil

A Korean Concentrix (CX) Solar company has expressed interest in putting up a solar energy project in Quetta. It is already in negotiation with the Baluchistan government and would be signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the construction of a 300 MW Power Plant Project. A three member Korean delegation, led by Dr. Choi Moon-sok, the CEO of Concentrix (CX) Solar, Korea, met with the Chairman Board of Investment Saleem H. Mandviwalla for solar energy projects in Pakistan, here, on Tuesday. The delegation informed the Chairman that their technology is the latest and the best suited to Pakistani conditions. The Baluchistan government has already offered them a piece of land of 1,500 acres approximately near the airport. As a first step, they would install 50MW, and then they would gradually complete the 300MW in the form of six complexes/ sub units. Mandviwalla welcomed them and encouraged them to start the project and to come up with various other proposals to invest in the energy sector of Pakistan. The company also intends to sign an MOU with the Board of Investment, which is under process.

Later, Mandviwalla, along with the delegation, called on the Prime Minister, where the company representatives apprised the PM about their planned power plant project in Quetta. They also suggested various proposals, like the conversion of the diesel generated pumps to solar energy for irrigation purposes. The PM appreciated their investment plans and ensured the full support and cooperation of the government in these projects.
