ISLAMABAD, Jan. 22 (INP): As a critical step towards clean and green Pakistan, the Artistic Wind Power Plant has achieved a milestone by connecting 50MW electricity to the National Grid, Gwadar Pro reported.

GE Renewable Energy and Artistic Energy Pvt. Ltd (owned by Artistic Milliners) commissioned the 50 MW Wind Farm at Jhimpir in Thatta district of Sindh in May 2018.

The Jhimpir wind farm aims to help Pakistan expand its renewable energy production in line with its Vision 2025 goals.

The successful project has stopped the 19,650 kg of carbon dioxide equivalent of GHGs from being released into the environment. “It is a critical step forward, providing clean energy and stable returns to the economy for decades to come,” according to the statement.

Chinese EPC PowerChina is constructing the project through its subsidiaries Hangzhou Huachen Electric Power Control Co., Limited as Supplier and HydroChina International Engineering Company Limited (HCIECL) Pakistan as EPC Contractor.

HCIECL Pakistan will also perform the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) contractor for the first two years together with turbine supplier Goldwind.
