Power Plant Technology
The power plant is ideally located close to Sidhnai Barrage at Abdul Hakim, District Khanewal and is connected with Pakistan’s highest voltage transmission 500 KV line connecting Multan and Gatti. The Power Plant consists of Siemens V.94.2 Gas turbines and Steam Turbine (2+1) combined cycle configuration and is designed for base load operation, using RLNG as fuel. The power plant has the capability of running on LFO (Diesel) and a storage stock is kept at the plant site for any operation on LFO. The plant continues to display high level of efficiency, due to world-class maintenance regime and practices, despite being in service for more than 23 years.
O & M CONCEPT
Rousch Power Plant since its commissioning has adopted a prudent and robust plant O&M strategy, based on international best practices. Our O&M strategy has resulted in top decile performance consistently over the years. Gas Turbines have already completed more than 125,000 Equivalent Operations Hours. In order to ensure highest level of performance over the next 100,000 operating hours, the life time extension (LTE) measures were performed in 2012 for the first time in Pakistan on Siemens V.94.2 machines by Siemens AG Germany. This activity included replacement of all major components of gas turbines and compressors. Periodic maintenance activities and inspections are carried out according to the recommendations of the OEM. The control systems for Gas Turbines and Steam Turbine have been upgraded through a substantial capital investment to avoid any issues related to performance, reliability and obsolescence.
