ADB is supporting efforts of Pakistan to improve the reliability of electricity supply in the country. The project covers investment in the secondary transmission grid, energy loss reduction and distribution of power, spare power transformers for emergencies. It will add 5,021 megavolt-amperes of transformer capacity and improve distribution efficiency.

|Description||The project comprises physical investments in subprojects covering (i) secondary transmission grid (STG): augmentation and extension of 132-kV power transformers at existing substations; (ii) energy loss reduction and distribution of power: replacement of overloaded distribution transformers with higher capacity and adding additional distribution transformer capacity on the 11-kV feeders; and (iii) strategic spares: spare power transformers for emergencies. The project will add 5,021 megavolt-amperes (MVA) of transformer capacity and will improve the distribution system''s efficiency and delivery.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The project is urgently needed to further alleviate the power distribution system bottlenecks and to reduce prolonged outages and load shedding. The project will help the DISCOs improve reliability and quality of power supply to customers. The outcome will be removal of power system bottlenecks by reducing the overloading of the system and increasing the transmission capacity of the substations through distribution system augmentation and expansion.|
|Impact||Reliable and quality power supplied and service coverage expanded.|
|Description of Outcome||Capacity of the power distribution systems increased.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||Capacity of power distribution system is improving and would be increased further by 2018.|
|Description of Project Outputs||Subprojects commissioned.|
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||
154 STG projects completed by 2017 and more to be done by 2018.
112 extension works completed by 2017 and more to be done by 2018.

|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Environmental Aspects||Due diligence was undertaken to assess the environmental implications of the project activities. The project is limited to up gradation of grid stations, which involves transformer replacement, or transformer addition and no civil works are anticipated and all replacement activities will take place within the boundaries of the existing grid stations. Accordingly, the project has been classified as C for environmental safeguards requiring no further environmental assessment. An environmental assessment review framework was prepared for the MFF in 2009, which was updated in 2012 to fulfill the requirements of ADB's SPS 2009. All subprojects are required to comply with ADB's Prohibited Investment Activities' list. Each DISCO has established an environment and social impact cell and, in compliance with the loan agreement, hired one environment specialist to implement the environmental mitigation measures detailed in the environment management plans of ongoing previous tranches.|
|Involuntary Resettlement||The project is classifed as "C" for resettlement. All works are proposed to be carried out entirely within existing grid stations and no land acquisition resettlement impacts are anticipated. As a result, there is no need to update the approved and disclosed Land Acquisition and Resettlement Framework for tranche 4 processing.|
|Indigenous Peoples||The project is classifed as "C" for indigenous peoples. The project will have no impact on indigenous peoples.|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||No direct consultation will be undertaken.|
|During Project Implementation||No direct consultation will be undertaken.|
|Consulting Services||There will be no recruitment of consulting services.|
|Procurement||There are eight international competitive bidding (ICB) packages covering activities such as procurement of transformers, panels, cables and allied equipment, etc. If applicable (based on the thresholds indicated in the procurement plan), individual lots under the ICB packages that did not lead to contract awards will be procured under national competitive bidding (NCB). There will be two civil works contracts under NCB.|
