The TEL power plant was a 330MW mine-mouth lignite-fired power project being built by Thar Energy, which was owned by Hub Power Company (Hubco), China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC), and Fauji Fertilizer Company (FFC).

The Engro Thar Block II power plant was a coal-fired power station in the Tharparkar district, Sindh. It was Pakistan’s first power plant to use the indigenous coal reserves of Thar.

The coal-fired sub-critical power plant was located five kilometers away from Thar Block II near Thar coalfields in Sindh province. It consisted of two 330MW sub critical units, which integrated circulating fluidize bed (CFB) boilers, tandem compound steam turbine units, and generators. CFB was an ideal option for the low-calorific-value Thar lignite coal.

The financial closing for the power plant was achieved in September 2020 and the commercial operations are scheduled for 2022.
