Project Outcome

Description of Outcome
Progress Toward Outcome A Project Inception Mission was held in mid-March 2015 wherein issues related to (i) coal supply, (ii) coal logistics, (iii) water supply, (iv) power purchase agreement, (v) JPCL site remediation, and (vi) bid documents finalization were discussed. Review missions were fielded in May, September and November 2015 to closely monitor project progress. Roadshows were held in May and Oct 2015 to attract potential engineering contractors for the installation of supercritical coal-fired plant and potential suppliers for the coal supply of the said plant, respectively. The coal procurement process commenced in Q1 2016 by JPCL. Bidding for the site remediation civil works is ongoing with contract award expected by Q4 2016. As of 30 March 2016, the total Project's contract awards amount to $18.25 million while total disbursements amount to $6.84 million.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects This project is categorized as A for environment. The project will benefit the environment by restoring the site and reducing the sulfur emissions per kWh generated in comparison with power generated from high-sulfur HFO. In compliance with ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009), an environmental audit of the existing facility and environmental impact assessment study of the planned two new units was prepared, with the draft disclosed on 26 June 2013. The new coal-fired unit will produce large quantities of ash and soot, requiring specific handling (para. 20). Site remediation will address contamination issues, such as oil-contaminated soil, waste metals, and asbestos disposal. Mitigation measures include (i) effluent water management, (ii) construction of a hazardous waste storage facility, (iii) development of a landfill site for colony waste, (iv) rehabilitation of evaporation ponds, (v) emissions control measures to address excessive SO2emissions, and (vi) ash disposal and traffic management. As a loan requirement, the implementing agency will implement an annual comprehensive monitoring program to measure GHG emissions and effluent. Project management and project implementation unit environment staff will be supported and trained to ensure compliance during implementation and operation. Training sessions will be held for engineers to mainstream environmental safeguards. Background levels of fine particulate matter (less than 2.5 microns in diameter [PM2.5]) in the project area exceed the applicable standards. The high levels of PM2.5 are generally attributed to informal power generation sources, which use dirty fuels and less efficient generation, and are employed to meet the country's power shortages. An offset for the plant's emissions of PM2.5 will be designed and implemented, with technical assistance, through further assessment of air quality and pollution sources within the airshed. The project will help reduce the power shortage and replace these fuels, which is expected to improve the baseline air quality and help offset the plant's emissions. The PIC will assess options to offset the project's GHG emissions, including reforestation through a collaborative United Nations initiative.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is categorized as B for resettlement. Approximately 100 acres of land belonging to 18 landowners (with a total of 106 family members) is required for an ash pond at Jamshoro TPS. Consultations were held with the owners and they are willing to negotiate with JPCL on the price. A land acquisition and resettlement plan was prepared and disclosed on ADB's website on 19 September 2013; it will be updated to reflect the final list of owners and price agreed between the owners and JPCL.
Indigenous Peoples There will be no impact on indigenous peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The project will generate electricity that will be fed into the national grid. All consumers (urban, rural, industrial, agricultural, commercial and domestic) connected to the grid are potential beneficiaries; however their direct participation is not relevant to the project design.
During Project Implementation The sites are contained within operating power plants. The only directly affected people are those affected by resettlement; they were closely consulted in preparation of the Land Acquisition and Resettlement Plan, and will participate in its implementation. Roadshows will be conducted to attract eligible coal suppliers and EPC contractors as well as build more market-friendly bidding documents. A Roadshow for EPC contractors and coal suppliers was held in May 2015 in Singapore. Another Roadshow for coal suppliers was held in October 2015 in Indonesia.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. Quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method will be the default method for recruiting consulting firms with a standard quality-cost ratio of 90:10 due to its complexity and high impact of the project.

Project implementation consultant (international consulting firm) has been selected and mobilized to: (i) review conceptual design and bidding documents; (ii) assist in the recruitment of engineering contractors in accordance to ADB's Procurement Guidelines; (iii) develop and implement comprehensive project management plans to ensure the most efficient, timely, and economical implementation of the Project; (iv) undertake due diligence in relation to proposed consultants, subconsultants, contractors and subcontractors during procurement processes and if proposed to be included in contracts after contract award; (v) ensure non-objection by ADB for any subcontracting structures in excess of 10% proposed to be included in consulting or construction contracts; and (vi) supervise the engineering contractors for supply, installation, commissioning and testing of equipment. Estimated contract duration is 120 months.

Capacity development consultant will likewise be engaged to assist GHCL and JPCL in developing its capacity for future coal project expansion.

Procurement

All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines.

JPCL will select the most appropriate contract form with ADB prior concurrence. A multi-stage bidding procedure without prequalification is preferred for the procurement of an EPC contract for the construction of two new supercritical coal-fired unit with 5-year O&M service contract. The procurement will follow international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures. Bidding documents are currently being prepared.

Bidding for the site remediation civil works is ongoing with contract award expected by Q4 2016.
