Electricity Crisis: Is there really a shortage

Electricity produced in Pakistan is from three main sources.

1). Hydal
2). Thermal (Gas/Steam/Furnace Oil)
3). Nuclear

There are four major power producers in country which include Water & Power Development Authority (WAPDA), Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC), Independent Power Producers (IPPs) and Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC).

Below is the break-up of the installed capacity of each of these power producers (as of June-2008).


a). WAPDA Hydal

Terbela – 3478 MW
Mangla – 1000 MW
Ghazi-Brotha – 1450 MW
Warsak – 243 MW
Chashma – 184 MW
Dargai – 20 MW
Rasul – 22 MW
Shadi-Waal – 18 MW
NandiPur – 14 MW
Kurram GarhiĀ  – 4 MW
Renala – 1 MW
Chitral – 1 MW
Jagran (AK) – 30 MW

Total hydal = 6461 MW

b). WAPDA Thermal

Gas Turbine Power Station, Shadra – 59 MW
Steam Power Station, Faisalabad – 132 MW
Gas Turbine Power Station, Faisalabad – 244 MW
Gas Power Station, Multan – 195 MW
Thermal Power Station, Muzaffargarh – 1350 MW
Thermal Power Station, Guddu – 1655 MW
Gas Turbine Power Station, Kotri – 174 MW
Thermal Power Station, Jamshoro – 850 MW
Thermal Power Station, Larkana – 150 MW
Thermal Power Station, Quetta – 35 MW
Gas Turbine Power Station, Panjgur – 39 MW
Thermal Power Station, Pasni – 17 MW

Total Thermal = 4811 MW

WAPDA’s Total (Hydal + Thermal) capacity is 11272 MW

2). Karachi Electric Supply Company

Thermal Power Station, Korengi – 316 MW
Gas Turbine Power Station, Korengi – 80 MW
Gas Turbine Power Station, SITE – 100 MW
Thermal Power Station, Bin Qasim – 1260 MW

Total (KESC) = 1756 MW

3). Independent Power Producers (IPPs)

Hub Power Project – 1292 MW
AES Lalpir Ltd, Mahmood Kot MuzaffarGarh – 362 MW
AES Pak Gen, Mahmood Kot MuzaffarGarh – 365 MW
Altern Energy Ltd, Attock – 29 MW
Fauji KabirWala Power Company, Khanewal – 157 MW
Gul Ahmad Energy Ltd, Korengi – 136 MW
Habibullah Coastal Power Ltd – 140 MW
Japan Power Generation, Lahore – 120 MW

Atlas Power, Sheikhpura – 225 MW
Engro Energy Ltd, Karachi —– MW
Kot Addu Power Company Limited (privatized) – 1638 MW

Total (IPPs) = 6365 MW

4). Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission


Total (Nuclear) = 462 MW

Hydal Electricity generated by WAPDA varies between two extremities i.e. bewteen minimum of 2414 MW and maximum of 6761 MW depending upon the river flow through theĀ  year.

Total Power Generation Capacity of Pakistan (including all sources) is 19855 MW and the electricity demand (as of today 20-04-2010) is 14500 MW and PEPCO is merely generating 10000 MW. Even if we accept the government excuses and lies that suddenly water has finished in the dams then still Pakistan should be producing 13394 MW and obviously not all the water can suddenly disappear, the hydel projects should at the very least be producing 2000 MW out of its 6461 MW capacity and that should still be enough to meet the demand of electricity for the country, however we are still getting load shedding of up 15-20 hours per day, Iran has offered Pakistan electricity at cheap rates and offered 1000 MW for free yet government has even rejected them which shows their intentions.

So it is obvious that these 15-20 hrs power shutdowns in most parts of the country are not because of the lack of generation capacity but only because of the corrupt & incompetent government. Situation could have been better if they really wanted to deliver but now its the time nation should stop expecting from Zardari & its puppet goverment for the solutions. They themselves are the problem and it should not be a surprise for PPP govt if violent anti government protests erupt in major parts of the country.

Now from reliable sources we have learnt that the CIA backed Zadari government is about to start another artificial crisis of gas, water and food where gas like electricity will be stopped in our homes for a number of hours a day followed by a fake water shortage and food shortage. It can be a terrible summer due to these artificial crises sponsored by CIA and its agents in Pakistan, however it should not come as a surprise if this summer the violent anti government protests turn bloody and a revolution emerges, the government is doing all they can to get the population angry once they decide that its, then the time is up for the government.
