 GE, Sapphire Wind Power set up medical centre in Jhimpir

GE Renewable Energy and Sapphire Wind Power Co Limited (SWPCL) have joined hands for setting up an emergency medical center within the premises of Sapphire Wind Farm, Jhimpir—a village in Thatta district.

Jhimpir falls in the Gharo-Keti Bandar Wind Corridor, which has a potential to generate up to 50,000MW of electricity as per the Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB). The Jhimpir corridor is situated in south-eastern part of Pakistan between Hyderabad and Karachi—approximately 95 kilometers from the coast in a semi-desert area. This joint effort aims to bring fundamental medical emergency services to the community in a timely manner. In addition, this commitment of $100,000 will create awareness around EHS, and serve wider community in terms of emergency and temporary care.
