    ‘Solar Energy Park biggest investment in country’s history’

    LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that the project of Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Park in Bahawalpur would bring an investment of more than Rs 200 billion in the area, terming it the biggest investment in history of the country.

    He was addressing a gathering of people and elites of the area after inspecting the project site in Bahawalpur on Saturday.

    Due to this investment, the chief minister said, not only the new era of development and prosperity will usher in the region but the entire country and fate of the whole area including South Punjab will change.

    He said 1000 megawatt electricity will be generated in the first phase of solar energy park spread over an area of 11,000 acres while the supply of 100 megawatt solar energy will start before March 31, 2014. Similarly, under this project, the electricity production will continue to increase, he added.

    Shahbaz said the electricity to be generated from solar energy park set up at the district will be provided not only to Bahawalpur but other districts of South Punjab. He said not only new job opportunities will be created through this project but the fruits of economic development will also reach the area.

    The chief minister categorically said all the land allocated for solar park will only be in the name of Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park.

    He said the local youth will be given preference for jobs in the project, adding the vocations will not be given on political basis in this splendid project. The chief minister said the government had made planning for developing the park on modern lines and a programme had been evolved for generating more energy of 600 megawatt in the next 18 months.

    Shahbaz announced that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will soon lay the foundation of this project.

The chief minister said the final shape was being given to the master plan of this project and new chapter of development will be added in the area due to its timely completion.

    Shahbaz said Nawab Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan Abbasi was an enlightened leader who carried out invaluable development work in this area. The chief minister directed the concerned authorities to work day and night and priority should be given to the provision of water and construction of roads.

    Meanwhile, Shahbaz Sharif also inaugurated the newly constructed 125-bed District Headquarter Hospital and computerised Land Record Information Centre at Lodhran.

He said solar power project will bring a revolution of prosperity in the area. Mentioning the setting up of land computerised record centre, he said the obsolete system of patwar will soon bury and people will rid of bribery, nepotism and corruption. He said land record computerization work will be completed in 36 districts of the Punjab at a cost of Rs.11 billion till 2014. He said that completion of land record centre in Lodhran in one and a half year was commendable step.

    Solar energy park to open new vistas in southern Punjab

    BAHAWALPUR: The PML-N government is investing the largest ever amount of Rs 200 billion in the energy sector in Southern Punjab, while the project is the biggest one in the history of the country.

    This was claimed by Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, while visiting proposed site of the Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Generation Park at Toba Noor Sar, Cholistan Desert, on Saturday.

    The chief minister said that the project would not only provide electricity to Bahawalpur and Punjab but also provide employment to educated youths and open new vistas of progress in the region.

    To the PPP’s claim of being the biggest political force in Southern Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif said that the PML-N’s landslide victory in the Bahawalpur region had falsified the claim and now it was his duty to do his best to bring prosperity in the region.

    He added that more projects would also be started for the development of the area in future.

    He announced that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would inaugurate the unique 1000 megawatts project, which would be completed in mid March next year and its transmission to the national grid would start the same day.

    Criticising the previous regime, he said that the ill-planned policies of the PPP government in the power sector were the main cause of energy crisis and collapse of the transmission system in the country.

    He urged the media to highlight efforts being made to end energy crisis so that the people should know these efforts. About the political status given to Hamza Shahbaz by the Punjab government, the chief minister said that Hamza Shahbaz had been given the Punjab leadership because he had been twice elected MNA apart from being his son.

    Earlier, the chief minister was briefed about the Quaid-e-Azam Solar Energy Generation Park by Commissioner Asadullah Khan and the Punjab Energy secretary.

    They said that the park would be built on 10,000 acres and its generation capacity was 1000 megawatts. “It will be completed in three phases and the first phase will be completed in mid March,” they added. A large number of parliamentarians belonging to the Bahawalpur region, government officials and PML-N workers were also present.

    Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park: Solar energy’s 100MW to arrive in April

    LAHORE: The production of 100 megawatts (MW) of electricity from solar resources will be available for consumers in April.

    Earlier, the chief minister of Punjab announced the 100MW generation from indigenous resources would be added to the grid till the end of December 2014.

    Scheduled for the first quarter of 2014, the project, at a total cost of $131 million, will see got delayed due to a Chinese firm failing to fulfil criteria during the due-diligence process carried out by the Punjab government, an official of the energy department told The Express Tribune, requesting anonymity.

    The Punjab government announced the establishment of Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park over an area of 5,000 acres in the Cholistan Development Authority in Bahawalpur. The company was registered under the company act with the SECP. In October 2013, Najam Ahmad Shah was posted as the CEO of Quaid-e-Azam Solar Power Company on a deputation basis.

    From the 12 companies that applied for pre-qualification for the project, three – namely Chint, Tibea and Sumec – were shortlisted.

    The company sent its team of experts to China for the due-diligence process of Chint. However, after an assessment, the entity did not quality and the second entity for review, Tibea, was awarded the contract after its credentials fulfilled criteria, said the official.

    The priority of the Punjab government regarding the production of electricity has kept changing — focusing first on hydel, shifting to solar and now diverting attention to thermal (coal-) based projects. However, not a single megawatt has been added to the national grid so far, lamented the official.

    In October 2013, the CM, while speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the power project, announced that the solar park had the capacity to generate 1,000MW, which later got re-iterated to 100MW.

    Shah added that hopefully, the 100MW would be ready for the national transmission system by the first week of April.
