Load shedding compel mills to cease production

06
Mar '10
A substantial number of spinning mills, operating with the aid of state provided electricity are being shut on account of a fresh spell of load shedding. The spinning mills particularly in Lahore, Faisalabad and Multan regions with overall electricity consumption of 30MW as of now are straight way affected by this load shedding.

According to the industry representatives, unfavorable circumstances have stirred up as Pakistan Electric Power Company's (Pepco) with its erroneous calculations put some of its thermal power stations on maintenance as the canal silting activity concluded.

Nevertheless, scarce rains combined with water scarcity following unequal distribution of water by the authorities have led both Mangla and Tarbela dams to touch ground levels.

All in all around ten mills in the three regions have ceased to operate, industry sources divulged. Faisalabad is badly affected where all the mills operating with the aid of electricity lay idle as a consequence of load shedding for four hours.

It is to be noted that a delegation of All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) representatives is trying to persuade the electricity board authorities to keep the textile sector out of purview of load shedding which has been announced by the government in the Federal Budget and also in the first five year policy for textiles.

While interacting with the spinning mill owners on his week-long visit to Punjab, President Asif Ali Zardari had assured the stakeholders that the problems will be sorted out, have not been fulfilled till date.
