Pakistan: Second PowerTransmission Enhancement Investment Program - Tranche 2

Sovereign (Public) Project | 48078-004

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.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects

An IEE report for the Project has been prepared and posted in July 2017, in accordance with ADB Guidelines and ADB Safeguard Policy Statement (June 2009).

The IEE will be updated during Project implementation based on contractor's detailed designs.

Involuntary Resettlement

A draft LARP for the transmission line and substation projects were posted in June 2017.

The draft Due Diligence Report for the Upgradation/Extension of NTDC's Telecommunication & SCADA System was posted in May 2017.

Upon detailed design by the turnkey contractors, the LARPs will be updated.

No civil works will be initiated until and unless all affected persons have been duly compensated and all LARPS fully implemented.

Indigenous Peoples Impacts on indigenous peoples are not envisaged under the project.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Stakeholder consultation was conducted during project design especially during the IEE preparation.
During Project Implementation Stakeholder consultation and participation will be promoted throughout project implementation.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services

The recruitment of consultants will follow ADB Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time), using quality- and cost-based selection method with 90:10 quality/cost weighting.

SCADA/EMS consultant recruitment is ongoing, with contract award expected y Q3 2018.

Procurement

Projects will be procured through international competitive bidding following ADB s Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).

Procurement for ADB-200, ADB-201 and ADB-202 are currently ongoing, with contracts to be awarded by Q4 2018.
