Global Wind Power (GWP) Partners with Buksh Energy
Over the past 6 years Buksh Energy [Pvt. Ltd] (BE) has been committed to maximizing energy efficiency and ensuring the optimum utilization of resources in its attempts to alleviate Pakistan’s severe energy crisis. BE’s recent foray into the wind energy sector furthers the company’s aims to provide investors with the opportunity to fund real change in Pakistan and develop the renewable energy industry; an aim which they are already well on the way to achieving through their solar projects. They are now looking to transfer that success to wind energy.[blockquote cite=”The Ambassador of Denmark to Pakistan, Mr. Jesper Moller Sorensen”] As part of our Danida Business facility, we invited Buksh Energy to Denmark in October to meet prospective partners in the energy sector. I am really excited that Buksh Energy and Global Wind Power found each other. It is exactly innovative partnerships like this that will help Pakistan meet its energy demand in the future. Denmark is a global world leader in wind solutions, and that potential in Pakistan is enormous.
Global Wind Power (GWP) and Buksh Energy have joined hands to provide holistic 360o turnkey solutions for managing and commissioning wind energy projects in Pakistan. The partnership aims to facilitate the existing wind energy projects with the selection of an experienced EPC and project developer.
This is the first ever collaboration of BEPL and GWP for supporting the wind energy sector of the country and will provide a strategic balance of services, utilizing the two leading companies’ respective strengths and resources to leverage the energy sector of Pakistan. Global Wind Power (GWP), Denmark, is a leading international project developer specializing in developing, implementing, selling and managing wind turbine projects for professional investments. With more than ten years and 610 MW of international experience under its belt working in the capacity of an EPC developer for wind projects, the company is the perfect candidate to help realize and harness the huge wind energy potential in Pakistan, in collaboration with Buksh Energy.[blockquote cite=”GWP’s senior business advisor, Mr. Nicky Mads Larsen”] The partnership between Buksh Energy and GWP aims to combine the best of local and international know-how and experience for the benefit of the local industry, developers and investors. Although we have been in traditional project joint ventures before, our local partner agreement is a new and interesting form of collaboration for which we are very excited, and which allows us to explore markets that would otherwise be difficult to enter.

The partnership aims to fully facilitate the investors in setting up wind farms with a team of experts possessing the finest EPC and project management skill set. This move fits in with our vision 2020 to ensure that we are responsible for 5% of Pakistan’s energy needs to be met by renewables. With the projects we have under development, we are confident that we will surpass this target.
We thank the Danish Embassy especially His Excellency Mr. Jesper Moller Sorensen for his role and support in helping us cement this partnership and opening up the Danish renewable energy sector to us. With this support our next target is to bring the Danish technical expertise of Biogas and Biomass to Pakistan.
