Sindh signs MoU with Turkish firm for wind energy project

A memorandum of understanding was signed between the Sindh government and the STFA Yatirim, a Turkish company, on Friday for developing a wind power project in the province.

Agha Wasif Abbas, the provincial energy secretary, and Mehmet Orhan Unalan, the STFA project development director, signed the document at a ceremony at the Chief Minister’s House.

Chief Minister Qaim Ali shah, Adviser to the Chief Minister on Finance Murad Ali Shah, Turkish Consul General in Karachi Murat-M Onart, Turkey-Pak Business Council Vice Chairman M Riza Arsan and other diplomats and officers of the provincial government attended the ceremony.

The Turkish company will conduct studies for setting up wind masts at the site that it will identify within two months.

It will also give a schedule for the implementation of the project.

After the survey is successful, the company will set up a wind power generation project in accordance with the maximum wind potential available at the project site.

Under the memorandum, the provincial government will facilitate the company in identifying feasible sites for the wind study and expropriate the desired piece of land for the installation of wind masts and hand over to the company the proposed piece of land as the site for the project.

The chief minister said Sindh was exclusively blessed with a wind corridor that had a massive energy production potential.

“In order to exploit this natural source, the Sindh government is providing all required facilities to investors under the one-window operation,” he added.
