MUZAFFARGARH POWER STATION PROJECT

Speeches Shim

USAID is supporting the Government of Pakistan by repairing and rehabilitating Muzaffargarh Thermal Power Station (MTPS) located in Punjab Province.  MTPS is owned and operated by the Northern Power Generation Company Limited and originally had a capacity of 1,350 MW.  Over time, however, MTPS's capacity degraded. USAID's rehabilitation efforts aim to restore 475 MW of generation capacity, enough power to supply electricity to 4.4 million people. 
 
Objectives
The main objective of the project is to restore 475 megawatts to Pakistan's national power grid by funding the modernization of the thermal power station at Muzaffargarh. 
 
Main Activities
  • Rehabilitate major components of the thermal power station.
  • Conduct an initial assessment of the generation facility to determine the technical and commercial feasibility of the project.
  • Replace major pieces of equipment including superheaters, economizers, and rotors at all six power generation units.
  • Perform heat rate tests for improved capacity.
