The Group’s 300 MW coal fired thermal plant in the industrial state of Gujarat is close to two major Indian ports: Mundra and Kandla.
The plant has two units of 150 MW each on the same site. The EPC for the plant was done by our in-house EPC team and the operations are also managed by OPG’s own team. The plant commenced operations in 2016.
Both units have technology allowing them to use imported coal (typically Indonesian) or domestic (Indian) coal. Proximity to the ports provides additional flexibility in the procurement of imported or domestic coal. Similar to our Chennai plant, the plant uses air cooling technology reducing water usage by over 90%. All units are compliant with India’s environmental requirements.
Generation from this plant is sold principally to industrial and commercial customers to both within and outside the state of Gujarat.
