1. TSG POLICY
To contribute to the continuous improvement in performance of grid system in
Pakistan through the basic technical education and the advanced technology
The target objectives of this Policy are achieved through the following activities:
By maintaining a competent team of engineers and technicians in TSG as
technical expert as well as trainer.
By having an effective and numerically clear Annual Plan and Long Term
Plan of Trainings and Technical services.
By having an effective Maintenance & Management System of Training
Equipment and Facilities.
By introducing a culture of personal safety, fellows safety and equipment
safety not only while on the work but also in the general public.
By having a system of feedback, evaluation and technical information
sharing among all the stakeholders of TSG i.e., trainees, their supervisors
and management of GSO field of NTDCL/DISCOs & IPPs through
meetings, seminars, technical workshops, etc.

2. HISTORY OF TSG
2.1 CIDA Project Start in 1985
A technology transfer project between CIDA & WAPDA started in 1985 for
improvement and up gradation of GSO skills for O&M of grid system. TSG
NTDCL accepted the challenge and established a core technology on O&M and
training system.
2.2 CIDA Project Completed in 1990
3

Joint project of CIDA-WAPDA was completed.


2.3 JICA Project Signed in April 2005
Capacity building of TSG by cooperation of JICA Japan
An Agreement was signed between Government of Pakistan and Government of
Japan for improvement of training capacity on grid system operation and
maintenance in Pakistan.
2.4 JICA Project Started in April 2011

3. TSG INTRODUCTION
3.1 Introduction
Technical Services Group, hereafter called TSG was established in June 1985
vide an agreement between WAPDA (Govt. of Pakistan) and CIDA (Canadian
International Development Agency-Govt. of Canada) with the objective to improve
capabilities for maintaining the GSO system in WAPDA. The joint project of
CIDA-WAPDA was completed in 1990. Thereafter TSG was working without any
external support or assistance till the project under technical cooperation of JICA
(Japan) started in April, 2011 for capacity building of TSG. Since 2005, TSG is
functioning under the Services Division NTDCL.

The only one training organization on Grid system in Pakistan


3.2 Capacity Building of TSG
On 30.04.2005, an agreement was signed between Govt. of Pakistan and Govt. of
Japan for improvement of training capacity on grid system operation and
maintenance in Pakistan. Then the need of improvement of training capacity of
TSG NTDC was identified during the visit of a fact finding mission of JICA (Japan
International Cooperation Agency) Japan.
A team of AKC (Asia Kyodo-Sekkei Consultant)/JICA experts, arrived at TSG
Lahore in April 2011 for 1st survey visit of TSG NTDC to undertake and start the
project.
Japanese Technical Cooperation Project for Improvement of Training
Capacity on Grid System Operations and Maintenance in The Islamic
Republic of Pakistan
The following three main objectives were set for the project:
a) Provision of new and modern training equipment by JICA
b) Revision/up-gradation of the old training course books and facilities based on
the knowledge and skills acquired through TOT
c) Training of trainers (TOT) of TSG engineers and instructors in Japan
