Hub Power Company and K-Electric Transition to Clean Energy

19 FEB 2024 PV JOURNAL

The Hub Power Company Limited (HUBC) has partnered with K-Electric (KE) to explore transforming its Residual Fuel Oil (RFO)-based Hub Power Plant for Thar coal use. This initiative, as announced by HUBC, aligns with its aim to provide Pakistan with sustainable and cost-efficient energy.

A recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between these two energy leaders reflects their commitment to leveraging local resources for energy generation. HUBC's social media updates emphasize that this agreement is a crucial step towards adopting greener and more innovative energy practices.

.This partnership follows HUBC’s Board of Directors' decision to investigate potential investments in the Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company Limited, reinforcing the company’s focus on diversifying its energy mix.

As Pakistan’s first Independent Power Producer (IPP), HUBC has a significant role in the national energy landscape. It owns and operates a range of power plants, with a total installed capacity of 3,581MW. Its key assets include the 1292MW RFO-fired Hub Plant in Balochistan and the 225MW RFO-fired Narowal Energy Limited in Punjab.
