    Electricity Crisis: Is there really a shortage

    Electricity Crisis: Is there really a shortage

    SOURCE:http://islamkesipahi.wordpress.com/

    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).


    1). WAPDA
    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 Garhi – 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
    Koh-e-Noor Energy Ltd, Lahore – 131 MW
    Liberty Power Limited, Ghotki – 232 MW
    Rousch Power, Khaniwal – 412 MW
    Saba Power Company, Sheikhpura – 114 MW
    Southern Electric Power Company Ltd, Raiwind – 135 MW
    Tapal Energy Limited, Karachi – 126 MW
    Uch Power Ltd, Dera Murad Jamali, Nasirabad – 586 MW
    Attock Gen Ltd, Morgah Rawalpindi – 165 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

    KANUPP – 137 MW
    CHASNUPP-1 – 325 MW

    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 the 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.

        It is well known that Pakistan is being broken into pieces by outside forces via internal forces.

          .. now electricity crises are cause by outside (yahood, hanood, black water) with the help of internal forces (political parties, army, educated lot)

          man.. .. i starting to laugh now on your reply's you are hilarious


          a prophecy:
          Hazrat Zahid Hamid (RA) was flying over the sub-continent with his companion Talibanic soldiers.. before they were even born ... they were in the form of Rooh .. and waiting for Pakistan to come into existence ... when the crises of electricity come .. .they will unleash suicide attacks around the country on women & kids.. to fulfil the prophecy..

          I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

            I heard that one of the reasons capacity cannot be fully utilized is because the govt. does not have the money to pay the pwoer producers for the electricity it uses.

              This is probably one of the biggest reasons.

                There are a myriad of problems, and none of them will go away in the next 10-20 years

                Outakes from an interesting article by the respected International Herald Tribune


                http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/27/wo...l?pagewanted=2

                The crisis is a snarl of unmet responsibilities, and untangling it will not be easy. It has a cast of guilty characters that goes back years: governments that are incapable of planning ahead; bureaucrats who take bribes; even ordinary people who steal about 30 percent of all the power produced. The tribal areas in the west, for example, have no meters and have never paid for power.

                The result is about $2 billion a year in energy that is generated but not paid for. Industry experts said they were skeptical the government had a way to close the growing gap between Pakistan’s demand for power and the energy sector’s ability to produce it.

                The energy industry was already beginning to spiral when the current government took office in 2008, and to a large extent, the problem is inherited. Even so, the government and President Asif Ali Zardari are the lightning rods for public anger, which has begun to bubble up in the form of protests in some places in Punjab.

                The opposition party, led by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, has played on that anger, trumpeting the crisis to score political points, analysts said, even though its government’s record in the 1990s was no better
