More than 300 11kV Switch Installations have been carried out since 2014, across various grid stations, as part of a comprehensive effort to ensure optimal performance.

ISO 9001:2008 QMS Certification:

Various transmission network departments have been certified through the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System.

TP 1000:

KE has made significant investments to expand its transmission network, which will include the installation of new grid stations and transmission lines. A comprehensive and integrated scope of TP 1000 is conceived to meet Karachi’s growing load demand, which will enhance the extra high tension (EHT) transmission network, increase efficiency for dispatch, and increase the reliability, stability and capacity of the transmission network and grids. TP 1000 will potentially increase the capability of serving an additional 1,000 MVA through the EHT network.
