Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company
Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company Limited (SECMC) is a joint venture of Engro & Affiliates and Government of Sindh.
The Mining activity in Thar Block-II requires electrical power for mining related activities that is partially being supplied through Solar Power Plant on rental basis for the period of fifteen (15) years. During the earlier years of operation, the power requirement of the mine was being fulfilled by Diesel Generation but due to high fuel costs and global oil price volatility, SECMC entered into the first Private Power Purchase Agreement with an approved Generation License.
The 5 MW Captive Solar Energy Plant will contribute benefits equivalent to planting of 220,000 trees. The plant created approximately 18 unskilled jobs and 37 skilled jobs during the construction phase from the local community. The landmark project that’ll significantly reduce the operating cost will create an annual energy generation of 8,431 MWh and an annual carbon footprint reduction of 5,185 tonnes.
