48078-004: Second PowerTransmission Enhancement Investment Program - Tranche 2 | Asian Development Bank

Pakistan: Second PowerTransmission Enhancement Investment Program - Tranche 2

Sovereign (Public) Project | 48078-004 Status: Approved

Tranche 2 will expand 220 kilovolts (kV) transmission system in Sindh and Balochistan provinces to remove transmission network bottlenecks in the system and to enable the network to handle the expected future loads. It will also adopt high level technology to upgrade supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system cross the national grid to enable the transmission system operator, NTDC, to monitor and control the grid in real-time and prevent or reduce the duration of outages in the network, thus increase grid stability, reliability and resilience to accommodate more intermittent renewable energy. It will also feed computerized metering data complying with the Grid Code into the system for settlement (SFS) of the market operator, CPPA-G, to streamline revenue collection, billing and payment processes, and create a foundation for a future energy trading platform.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

A reliable and sustainable energy sector is essential to the economic growth and wellbeing of Pakistan. Load shedding has become common and severe, leading to civil strife and factory closures. Over one-third of the population does not have access to grid electricity which lessens opportunities for inclusive growth. Chronic power shortages are estimated to have reduced gross domestic product (GDP) growth by at least 2% in 2012 and 2013, and are considered the major cause of the slowdown in large-scale manufacturing, which grew at only 1.1% in fiscal year (FY) 2012 and 4.1% in FY2013.

This proposed investment program will continue to support NTDC to improve power transmission infrastructure and management in Pakistan by building on the work completed under the Power Transmission Enhancement Investment Program (MFF-0007).

Impact Transmission infrastructure improved, and energy market transparency and efficiency improved.
