MAN Diesel expands its power plant business further
After around 18 months of construction, on 15 August 2009 Dr. Stefan Spindler, MAN Diesel Executive Board Member responsible for the power plants business, inaugurated the first of a total of four diesel power plants which are developed in collaboration with the Pakistani Atlas Group. Alongside other key Pakistani figures, the inauguration ceremony was also attended by the country’s Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani, and the Minister of Water and Power, Raja Pervez Ashraf. The plant, close to the city of Lahore, was built by MAN Diesel as a turnkey diesel power plant with combined heat and power systems, and will in future generate around 213.6 MW of electrical energy for the Lahore region. The order for this power plant is worth around Euro 150 million.
