    After gas supply suspension, textile mills in the city are now facing electricity supply cut.:rofl::rofl::rofl::laugh::laugh:


    FAISALABAD: Faisalabad Electricity Supply Company (KESC) has suspended the supply to more than four hundred textile factories for indefinite period of time, Dunya news reported on Monday.

    Thousands of workers were unemployed due to continuous closure of the factories as the units were hit by gas and electricity supply suspension.

    According to FESCO officials, the electricity has been suspended on the directives of Ministry for Water & Power. The official stated that these factories are capable of producing electricity through gas and furnace oil, thus, their share of electricity will be diverted to the domestic consumers.

    On the other hand, All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA), Kharianwala Industrial Estate Association, Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association, Pakistan Textile Exporters Association have summoned an emergency meeting to review the situation.

    Factory owners have decided to announce a mutual-strategy to protest against the authorities.

    In the other thread there was talk of a Saudi steel plant which would run on electricity supplied by WAPDA. Now where would the electricity come from, is for anybody to guess.

    Faisalabad was called Lyallpur before Partition.

    Electricity through Gas and Furnace Oil will severely hit the profits of these industries imo.

    Installed Capacity ≠ Generation Capacity.
    Add to this the generation losses and distribution/transmission losses, things don't look so rosy now :laugh:.

    Why doesn't Pakistan utilize nuclear power? There is no way it can possibly supply power to everyone in the future with its population growth... Oh wait, let's use that for nukes that we will never use and will cost billions to maintain!:sad:

    Pakistan seems to be in the need of Economic reforms.
    They can stall like this forever but if improvement is on agenda, then they need reforms in a big way.
