Hydrochina, a subsidiary of Power Construction Corporation of China, will install 12 2.5MW wind turbines in the Tapal project in the north-east of Sindh province, 150 kilometres from Karachi. Hydrochina did not name the Chinese turbine maker. Each wind turbine will be supported with one box-type substation.

The Tapal project is the third wind farm to be constructed in Pakistan by Hydrochina. In May 2012, Hydrochina signed an agreement with First Dawood to jointly develop a 50MW wind farm in Karachi.

In September 2012, the company signed a contract with Pakistan’s Sapphire Wind Power Company to construct a 49.5MW wind project in Sindh province, 135 kilometres from Karachi.

Pakistan’s wind power development is speeding up following the introduction of a generous feed-in tariff early this year. There are two wind farms already built and three under construction. The country's long-term objective is to develop 2GW of wind farms.
