Grid Connected Power Systems - Coal

Coal is an indigenous resource and old mining systems are established in several regions. The supply chain is studied to ensure availability of coal and water at the plant site. The power production estimates are developed and the quantity of raw materials is identified. An inventory management plan is developed to keep the plant running under all circumstances. The road infrastructure and transportation study is carried out. The financial model is on the same lines as al power projects. The policy mechanism of coal power plants involves coal supply arrangement and its subsequent impact on tariff i.e. either Government of Pakistan has to take responsibility of coal supply at a fixed rate or two part tariff is introduced covering price of coal separately as a variable component.
