LAHORE – SEPCOIII and GE Power successfully completed a Reliability Run Test (RRT) at the Haveli Bahadur Shah Power Plant in Jhang, which is likely to start its regular power generation in April, 2018.

The RRT is a critical milestone towards the completion of the plant, which is being developed by the government through the National Power Parks Management Company Limited (NPPMCL).

The project is among the largest gas-fired combined cycle plants in the country, expected to add up to 1,230 megawatts (MW) to the national grid – the equivalent power needed to meet the electricity needs of up to 2.5 million Pakistani homes.
