    HESCO chief claims all out efforts being made to facilitate power consumers

    May 16, 2022 - Balochistan Times


      The Chief Executive Officer Hyderabad Electric Supply Company Noor Ahmed Soomro claimed that despite line losses and issues regarding recovery of outstanding dues, the HESCO management was making all out efforts to facilitate the power consumers of the region.

      He said this while addressing the members of Hyderabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry here at HCCI Secretariat on Saturday.

      The HESCO is getting 750 megawatt electricity from the national grid against the required demand of 1100 megawatts, he informed and added that the line losses in the region had reached to 28 percent with 76 percent recovery of outstanding dues against 87 percent recovery target.

      He said that a shortfall of 350 megawatts is the reason for long load shedding hours in the region which included the industrial sector. The industrial sector is the leading sector of revenue generation for HESCO and despite the shortfall, all out efforts are being made to facilitate this sector, he informed and added that at present an hour-long load management was being carried out at 16 feeders of Kotri industrial zone and 26 feeders of Nooriabad industrial zone.

      The HESCO Chief informed that construction of Sakhi Wahab Grid Station was being carried out while another World Bank funded project of the construction of Bandar Road Grid Station had been approved by the government. After completion of these grid stations, the power load of Qasimabad and Latifabad grid stations would be eased, he assured.

      On the occasion he also announced formation of a committee under the supervision of Chief Commercial Officer HESCO Riaz Ahmed Pathan for resolving the issues of HCCI members.

      The President HCCI Adeel Siddiqui in his welcome address highlighted the issues particularly the issue of unannounced load shedding being faced by the traders and industrialists of Hyderabad.
