Powering Pakistan towards
Shakarganj Energy (Private) Limited (SEL) has developed and commissioned a 15MW a co-generation, bagasse fired thermal generation power plant at Bhone, Punjab with commercial operations commencing in December 2014.
The company operates as a fully owned subsidiary of Crescent Steel and Allied Products Limited and its primary business is to generate, accumulate, distribute, sell and supply electricity to FESCO and to other distribution companies as permitted.
This innovative project sets a precedent for power production at sugar mills by using bagasse as a source of alternative energy. The co-generation plant uses bagasse in the combustion process to produce power and process steam. The plant is well positioned to cater to excess demand of process steam from the surrounding sugar mills and to provide reliable emission free power to the national grid.
The power plant will operate under environmental management controls and in strict compliance with the requirements of the National Environmental Quality Standards (NEQS) Pakistan to ensure there are no adverse effects on the surrounding environment and community.
