Pakistan’s first wind farm

The deal is part of a project under the Pakistani government’s Alternative Energy Development Board, the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) said.

HHI will supply 30 wind turbines capable of generating 1.65 MW of wind energy each, KOTRA said.

Construction of the wind power generators, worth an estimated 60 billion won ($52.65 million) to 80 billion won, is set to start next year, the Yonhap news agency reported.

The Pakistani government launched the project in 2006 to generate wind power of 818 MW for the country’s seven provincial and administrative regions.

Iran-Pak Wind Power (Pvt) Ltd, a joint venture between private sectors of Iran and Pakistan will set up another 50 megawatts wind farm in Pakistan.

According to the chief executive officer of the project, Khurram Sayeed this was the first of its kind project in the private sector among companies of Iran and Pakistan. He said the company had been incorporated in Pakistan along with the Iranian Group Sunir, which had a 50 percent stake in the wind energy project. Sayeed is the chairman of the Alternate Energy Committee at the FPCCI.
