Assignments/ Projects/ Responsibilities

GHTP, LehraMohabbat has been assigned the task of generating electricity with its total installed capacity of 920MW, to be distributed to the consumers of Punjab state through Distribution wing of PSPCL. Central Electricity Authority (CEA) has fixed generation target of 3780MU for this plant during 2017-18.

GHTP LehraMohabbat has contributed a lot to reduce the gap between demand & supply of power in Punjab since its commissioning. Its Units have generated 78776 Million units up to March 2017. This plant has shown excellent performance and huge savings have been made in terms of earning incentives by performing better than targets set by Punjab State Electricity Regulatory Commission as well as Central Electricity Authority, through meticulous planning with a long vision.

GHTP has broken its own records of the highest generation year after year and has been operating at the lowest cost of generation amongst all PSPCL power plants in spite of its higher interest and depreciation. Its operating parameters for the last 5 years are given in the following table:
