Zorlu wind farm in Thatta

Was quite surprised to see an inauguration ceremony of a new wind farm project in Thatta, Sindh, by a Turkish company (apparently with the help of the Chinese).

The farm will initially produce 50 megawatts of electricity and can be scaled up to 250 megawatts at a later stage. That alone won’t be enough to meet the country’s needs, but at least it’s something.

Such a move was predicted by people when the power rates skyrocketed last year. It was said that the rates had been increased by the government to enable third-parties to come in and provide kickbacks through the fat, juicy contracts.

This may just be a conspiracy theory, but even if the corruption angle is true, at least we’re getting a cool wind farm and another step forward in moving towards alternative energy technology.
