Lucky Cement plans to sell additional electricity to the Peshawar Electricity Supply Company through its plant in Darra Pezu, Pakistan.

The daily Business Recorder reported that Lucky Cement is holding meetings with Pesco to sell 15-20MW of electricity to overcome prevailing power shortages in the district of Lakki Marwat and Dera Ismail Khan and the adjacent areas of Lucky Cement’s plant.

Lucky Cement has its own power generation units at both its production faclities in Karachi and Darra Prezu, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. These power plants have a combined capacity output of 175MW and since 2010 both plants have installed state-of-the-art Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) systems which are contributing an additional 22MW of electricity.
