March 25, 2019 (MLN): In line with a notice issued by NEPRA, Premier Industrial Manufacturing Company (Pvt.) Limited has proposed to add another Bulk Power Consumer (BPC) namely Premier Paper Mills Limited in its Generating License.
PICMPL has stated that Premier Industrial Manufacturing Company (Pvt.) Limited has been granted a Generation License which allows supplying surplus power to two Bulk Power consumers including HQ Steels (Pvt.) Limited and Zee International (Pvt.) Limited. Now, the company plans supplying power to another Bulk Power Consumer in the name of Premier Paper Mills Limited which is an Associated Company.
As per another notification issued by NEPRA, Liberty Wind Power 1 (Pvt.) Limited (LWPPL-1) has requested to update the name of the company in generation license from Zulaikha Energy (Pvt.) Limited to Liberty Wind Power 1 (Pvt.) Limited, change the tower hub height of wind turbines from 80m to 93m and extend the lifespan of wind farm from 20 years to 25 years.
The envisaged wind farm will be in operation for a period of up to 25 years. The updated operation life is to ensure lower levelized cost of energy and is in congruence with the cost-plus tariff awarded to the Project Company by NEPRA.
On the other hand, Liberty Wind Power 2 (Pvt.) Limited has requested to update the name of the company in generation license from Noor Solar Energy (Pvt.) Limited to Liberty Wind Power 2 (Pvt.) Limited and change the tower hub height of wind turbines from 80m to 93m.
This change is to ensure more efficient and effective wind turbine with respect to site selection and the choice offers a combination of scale and maximum performance. Furthermore. This is in line with the tariff that was applied by the companies and determined by NEPRA. The 93m hub height is a standard product range and is backed by the Type Certificate, which was not available at the time when the Company had originally applied for the Generation License.
All of the above companies informed that there would be no adverse impact on the tariff, quality of service and obligations of the licensee under the generation license.
