ATTOCK GEN LIMITED
Attock Gen Limited (AGL) is the first power sector venture of the Attock Group of Companies and is the first Independent Power Producer (IPP) commissioned under Government of Pakistan’s Policy for Power Generation Projects of 2002. Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan inaugurated Attock Gen Limited’s power plant in an impressive ceremony at Morgah, Rawalpindi on April 07, 2009.
AGL plant, with a gross capacity of 165 MW, has been designed to achieve maximum efficiency. The Plant configuration consists of 9 reciprocating 16.5 MW furnace oil fired engine generator sets and 9 heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) to provide steam for one 11.6 MW condensing steam turbine. The concept of 9 engines plus one steam turbine, in a combined cycle mode, improves the reliability as well as the efficiency. The project is sponsored by The Attock Oil Company and Attock Refinery Limited.
The unique feature of AGL’s power plant is its fuel which is environment friendly RFO. This is extracted from the indigenous crude oil processed at the Attock Refinery in Rawalpindi.
Electricity is the engine for growth of an economy. AGL is therefore playing a vital role towards development of the economy through provision of electricity produced from indigenously sourced fuel, while also setting a benchmark of excellence for others to follow.
