Textile units in Pakistan's Punjab install LPG system
24
Jan '12
Over the past couple of months, more than 400 textile industries in Pakistan's Punjab province have set up Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) system in their units.

In spite of being costly, LPG is an eco-friendly alternative to scarcely available natural gas. In addition, LPG is less expensive than diesel, which is preferred by 95 percent of the industries in the province to offset unavailability of natural gas.

LPG costs around Pak Rs. 80 per kg in summers and Pak Rs. 135 per kg during winters, which averages to Pak Rs. 110 per kg.

It takes around 65 kg of LPG to generate 650 KW of power, and a one MW generator would require around 100 kg of LPG to operate.

Based on this, the annualized cost of producing one unit of power through LPG generator works out to around Pak Rs. 18, which is almost 2.4 times more than the cost of producing power with the help of generator operating on natural gas.

This is 80 percent more than the price at which Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) supplies power. However, it is much cheaper than Pak Rs. 27 per unit price of generating power through diesel.
