Quetta Electric Supply Company Limited (QESCO) responsible for electricity supply to country’s largest province Baluchistan, has floated a tender for supply and installation of two SVCs. These SVCs will be installed in coastal strip of Pakistan (Gawadar and Makran) and will connect them to national grid of Pakistan. Due to CPEC, Gawadar has emerged as a key trade and transportation corridors in recent years. Over time, energy needs of this region are going to increase exponentially which gives an opportunity to QESCO to ensure security of power supply beforehand. Considering the weak nature of Pakistan’s national grid, there is only one SVC in operation in the network till date. Link to the news: http://www.qesco.com.pk/Tender.aspx
