1223MW CCPP Balloki power plant, Kasur has successfully completed the Combined Cycle Reliability Run Test (RRT). RRT is one of the most important tests before commissioning of a power plant. The reliable operations and performance of entire power complex is tested under various conditions and on various loads and then approved for commercial operations.
Balloki power plant completed its simple cycle RRT on 16th August 2017 and achieved simple cycle COD on 30th August 2017 to supply 760MW to the national grid. Since then, Balloki power plant has supplied 1.8 billion to the nation grid amounting to 18 billion rupees.
Groundbreaking of Balloki power plant took place on November 10th, 2015. Implementation of such a massive project in only 31 months is an achievement for National Power Parks Management Company (NPPMCL).
