Jamshoro Power Station (GENCO-I) is a thermal power plant fueled by natural gas and fuel oil located near Sindh. It is operated by the Jamshoro Power Company. It was commissioned in between 1989-1991 under the leadership of Engr. A.K. Siddiqui and Project Director Engr. M. M. Chandio. It consists of one 250 MW unit and three 200 MW units.[1][2]

In February 2014, the Asian Development Bank agreed to loan $900 million to the government of Pakistan for a project to install 600MW supercritical coal-fired power plant at Jamshoro.[3] The Islamic Development Bank (IDB) approves $220 million for Jamshoro Coal Power generation project. The Asian Development Bank has already approved $900m for the project, whereas $380m will be contributed by the government to meet the overall estimated project cost of $1.5 billion.

The 600MW supercritical coal-fired power generation plant, using an 80/20 blend of imported sub-bituminous coal and domestic lignite when available, will be in accordance with international and national environmental standards.[4]
