Erratic electric supply brings textile sector to its knees

18
Dec '08
Proper electric supply is a major problem, the textile manufacturers are facing since along time, more so the SMEs who cannot afford to purchase generators to generate electricity. There are periodic electricity cuts lasting as long as 8 hours in a day, which are taking its toll on productivity of the manufacturing units.

The newly elected All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Chairman, has urged the government to suspend duties on furnace oil, which is the basic raw material needed to run them and also utilize all power generating capacities available in Pakistan.

He said that the industry was in deep trouble as gas supplies had also been suspended to units in Punjab and NWFP. He added by saying that utilization of machinery has dipped alarmingly leading to large scale unemployment in the industry, besides losing billions of rupees in production losses.

The energy committee Chairman of APTMA, Shafqat Elahi said the most practical solution lies in converting the thermal plants to using furnace oil as feedstock since WAPDA thermal plants could generate only 18 percent efficiency.

The Chairman of Punjab unit of APTMA, Mr Akber Sheikh made an interesting comment when he said that all export growth plans had been put on hold, because of uncertain supply of gas and power and since 30 percent of production had been cutback due to the power cuts, he expects exports from the sector to stay stagnant.
