The project funded the repair and maintenance of units 14 at the Jamshoro Thermal Power Station located near the city of Hyderabad in Sindh. The project aimed to regain the power generation capacity that had been lost over the years due to the aging of the equipment and deferred maintenance at the station.
The program seeks to strengthen Pakistan's power generation and transmission systems and promote relevant policy reform. The project provides advice and technologies, as well as oversees USAIDfunded construction and repairs of thermal power plants and dams. Through these and other efforts, the project is helping the Government of Pakistan to put more power on the national grid, decrease losses in revenues, and increase cost recovery by the power generation institutions.
This project funded the repair and rehabilitation of the Muzaffargarh Thermal Power Plant located 45 kilometers southwest of Multan City in southern Punjab. The power station has a 1,350 megawatts (MW) installed capacity, but before the USAID funded repairs, the plant was only producing 835 MW due to the aging equipment, deferred maintenance, and lack of proper fuel.
