Alternate Energy Pakistan: US $875m Windpower Project to Provide 30% of Karachi's Needs

A new US$875 million wind power project will provide 30 percent of Karachi's power needs, a state government official has said. Speaking at the inauguration of the Gharo project, adviser to Sindh Chief Minister for Environment and Alternate Energy, Noman Saigol, said it was the first alternate energy project for Sindh.

Sixteen companies from the US, Japan and China are taking part in the project, which will be built on 19,700 acres of government-provided land.

The windpower project, expected to employ 30-40,000 locals, will have a 50MW capacity, rising to as much as 900MW by 2010, he said.

$875 million USD???

Man i hope this price factors in the project's complete construction of said total 900 MWe electrical capacity generation. Not just the measly 50 MWe, first phase?

$875 million for 50 MWe of Wind Turbine generation would be an absolute scandal and rip off worthy of a major league probe.

Hi James

Im an Irish lass living in London and on April 17th im runnning the london marathon. In a bid to draw up some attention from the blog commnity I am holding a blog marathon on 11th March...

It is an opportunity to bring the blogging community together and also raise awareness of your blog.

The idea for my post http://everythingirish.blogspot.com/ is that I blog for 26.2 hours placing a post up every half an hour. hopefully if I can drum up enough interest so that people will read my blog and maybe donate some money to a good cause (raising £1500 for ActionAid who help fight poverty).

But anyone can join in this blog marathon. Just for fun, to attract people to there site, to drum up business, or like me trying to raise money for charity.

Check out http://blogmarathon.blogspot.com/ if you would like to join this blog marathon.

my running blog is

Spread the word!

Thanks
Michelle

PS even if you can only make it for some of the time it would be good to see you there. thx
