China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) has acquired a 10 per cent stake by investing $3.9 million in Hub Power Companys (Hubco) subsidiary Thar Energy Limited (TEL), one of Pakistan’s first domestic coal-fired power projects at Thar coal block II. Hubco, which holds a 60 per cent majority share in the project, said that it had created TEL to set up a 330 MW mine-mouth lignite-fired power plant. The company has signed a shareholders’ agreement with Fauji Fertiliser Company (FFC) and CMEC TEL Power Investments Limited (CMEC Dubai) for the rest of the equity investment – 30 per cent and 10 per cent respectively – in the project. FFC injected equity into the company earlier this year.
