Iranian Firm Sunir Seeks PM’s Help for Outstanding Dues


M/s Sunir, an Iranian firm, has reached out to Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif seeking assistance in receiving payment for outstanding dues owed by the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC).

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Managing Director Hasan Gholinezhad highlighted Sunir’s completion of the Gwadar Pak-Iran 220KV interconnection transmission line, allowing for the import of an additional 100MW of electricity from Iran to the Gwadar region despite significant challenges such as security issues and adverse conditions.

The company claims that, despite fulfilling their contractual obligations and beginning work before the agreed starting date, NTDC has not fulfilled its commitment to pay invoices totaling Euro 5,299,293.30 plus Rs 36,113,320.47, with only 40% of the contract amount paid so far.

Sunir emphasizes its readiness to continue work on the Gwadar project, including the completion of the 75-kilometer transmission line and related GIS station, to fully utilize the capacity of the transmission line for the benefit of Gwadar and other regions in Pakistan.

The letter underscores the company’s investment, efforts, and completion of crucial infrastructure despite challenges, urging swift action to address the outstanding payment issue.
