Matiari-Lahore transmission line completed
LAHORE: The Pakistan Matiari-Lahore Transmission Line Company (PMLTC) has completed 660kV Matiari-Lahore transmission line, a flagship project under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, as per the agreed timeline with the National Transmission and Dispatch Company, a statement said.
Prior to its commercial operation date, as many as eight tests on different voltage levels were performed successfully on the 878km transmission line.
Speaking at a ceremony held at the Wapda House, NTDC managing director Engr Azaz Ahmad appreciated the Chinese company for completing the project within the stipulated time.
PMLTC president and CEO Zhang Lei was also present on the occasion.
Ahmad said that the transmission line would bring stability in the NTDC transmission network. The transmission line, set up on Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) basis for a term of 25 years, will evacuate power from new units located in the south, including Thar coal-based projects.
The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet had approved the security package documents, i.e., implementation agreement and transmission services agreement on July 25, 2017, which were subsequently executed on May 14, 2018.
The NTDC will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the transmission line.
