On 20th July, 2007 Pakarab Fertilizers Limited submitted a plan for Co-generation Power Project.
Pakarab Fertilizer Limited is a major fertilizer complex producing both Nitrogenous and Phosphatic fertilizers. Ever since its inception, the complex is not connected to the national electricity grid. Power and steam for the fertilizer processes as well as for common consumers within the Pakarab Fertilizers area was supplied by the captive power plant on-site, without any co-generation.
On 20th July, 2007 Pakarab Fertilizers Limited submitted a plan for Co-generation Power Project. The objective of the project was:
- To generate power & steam by Gas Turbines with upstream Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) for supply to fertilizer complex using clean, renewable and sustainable cogeneration technology.
- Application of the energy efficient process of cogeneration of heat and power in natural gas fired cogeneration plant.
- To help achieving the objectives of combating climate change under UN-FCCC by reducing significant amount of greenhouse has (Carbon dioxide) emissions.
Pakarab Fertilizers Limited hired the services of Fichtner GmbH & Co. KG, Germany as the "Project Development Consultants" and with a total project cost of $ 35 million, the project started on 1st January 2008 and was completed in one year.
The Co-generation plant has an operational life of 25 years and the new gas turbine Co-generation plants estimated emission reduction capacity is 107,746 Tons of CO2 eq/year.
