GE to Supply Boilers to Coal-Fired Power Plant in Pakistan

GE CFB boilers set for Pakistan coal-fired power plant

GE (NYSE: GE) will supply two 330-MW boilers for a coal-fired power plant in Pakistan through a deal with China Machinery Engineering Corp (CMEC).

The two GE circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers will go to Engro Powergen Thar (Private) Limited, CMEC’s joint venture with Pakistan companies for the Thar Block II Power Plant. The CFB operates at a low combustion temperature to minimize the amount of nitrogen oxides released.

CMEC and three companies are jointly developing the Thar Block II plant. The plant will be powered by coal from Thar Coalfield, the country’s first project fired with Pakistani Thar lignite. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is a major development megaproject intending to connect Port Gwadar in southern Pakistan to Xinjiang, China’s northwester autonomous region.
