We are moving

December 2014 at IPEK energy is marked by the presence of cardboard moving boxes.

Our previous offices, in Marktplatz 4, 48431 Rheine were not able to keep pace with our successful development, so that the resulting cramped conditions often forced us to make certain compromises. Sometimes, one could not find a quiet place where to work in peace; other times, one looked in vain for a suitable room for receiving visitors. Moving away from the pedestrian zone but still centrally located, IPEK has now found new premises in Verdistr. 15, 48431 Rheine. Spacious, friendly and bright and parking places directly at the door step, the new place offer the best of all conditions for creative internal collaboration and developing new concepts and further developing existing projects jointly with our customers, authorities, companies and stakeholders as from 1st of January 2014.

 

Turkish companies are keen to invest in wind power and solar energy sectors of Pakistan.

Minister for Water and Power Syed Naveed Qamar on Tuesday said that Zorlu Enerji Wind Power plant would start supplying 56.6 MW electricity to the national grid station by December.
Talking to media persons after signing Financial Close ceremony of 56.6 MW Zorlu Enerji Wind Power Project, develloped by IPEK energy, being set up at Jhimpir (Sindh) here, he said that now physical construction would be started on the project after the financial close. Some machinery has already been reached at the Karachi port from Turkey for onward transportation to the project site.
He said that several others Turkish companies are also keen to invest in wind sector of the country and hopefully we would achieve a target of generating 1500 MW of electricity from wind, set for next year.
He said that the Turkish company would initially set up 56.6 MW wind energy plant and gradually set up plants having 100 to 200 MW capacities.

Naveed said that the Sindh government has also been asked to provide land for wind farm project at reasonable rates in order to set up plants on priority.

Earlier, the financial close agreement of the project was signed by Zorlu Company Chief Executive and CEO Alternative Energy Development Board Arif Allaudin on behalf of their respective organisations.
Speaking on the occasion Turkish Ambassador to Pakistan Babur Hizlan said that the Turkish companies are keen to invest in wind and solar power sectors of Pakistan.

Zorlu Energy Group approves IPEK energy as Owners Engineer

Zorlu Energy Group from Turkey continues to rely on the services of IPEK energy GmbH. After the successful realisation of Phase-I with 6 MW capacity at Wind Farm ZORLU in Pakistan IPEK energy is proud to be approved with the appointment as “owners engineer” for the second phase of the Wind Farm Project in Pakistan. The appointment comprises supervision of all construction and installation works at site as well as supervision of the wind turbines commissioning.

Phase-II with a total capacity of 50.4 MW is going to be operated with wind turbines from the Danish manufacturer Vestas. IPEK energy will monitor the implementation of the 28 Vestas’ V90-1.8 MW turbines at WF Zorlu in Jhimpir, Pakistan. The delivery of the wind turbines is scheduled to start in the first half of 2012 whereas the whole wind power project is expected to be completed by the end of January 2013.

The whole wind farm with a total capacity of 56.4 MW is the first of its kind in Pakistan and it will have an estimated annual production of 159,000 MWh per year, which corresponds to the residential electricity consumption of approx. 350,000 persons in Pakistan. Moreover, the wind farm will save the environment from more than 90,000 tons of CO2 emissions on an annual basis.
