The first 660 MW unit of the Thar coal-fired power plant in the Tharparkar area of Sindh province (southeast Pakistan) has been linked to the Pakistani grid. When finished, the Thar power station, which is being constructed by the Chinese company Shanghai Electric, would consist of two units totaling 1,320 MW and an integrated coal mine with an annual output capacity of 7.8 Mt.
In October 2022, the Tharparkar district received a 330 MW coal-fired power station from the Pakistani business Thar Energy.
Coal accounted for 11% of Pakistan’s installed capacity in 2020, with 4.2 GW, and 12% of its power generation, with 17 TWh. The Pakistani government stated in 2020 that it will not construct any new coal-fired power facilities. However, 3.7 GW of coal capacity is still being constructed, and approximately 10 GW are in the process of being developed in the United States.
