Summary

There is not even a day of coal left in Anpara A and B projects. Two days of coal left in Anpara D due to the arrival of coal by railway rake.

The coal crisis has reached its peak in the Anpara project. In Anpara A and B project, where there is not even one day of coal left, in D project also only two days of coal is left. The D project has got some relief due to the arrival of coal by railway rake.

In the Anpara project located at the mouth of the coal mine, the coal crisis is fulfilling the saying of staying thirsty by the sea. The situation is that where the 630 MW Anpara A stock has been reduced to 9603.58 MT (MT). At the same time, the stock of coal in 1000 MW B project has been reduced to 14022.18 MT. That much coal is not enough even for a day’s operation of both the projects.

Anpara D project has a stock of 35047.82 MT of coal. With this, electricity generation can be done for two days from the latest project of the corporation. On the other hand, due to the order of the state government not to cut any situation in the night in the festive season, the difficulties of the management have increased due to running the units on full load in the peak hours from 6 pm to 11 pm. The total coal stock in the project stood at 58673.58 MT on Thursday morning.

Instructions to explore the possibility of coal transport by road
In view of the coal crisis prevailing in the power stations, there is pressure on the railways to supply coal to all the power stations through racks. Due to this, in the meeting of the sub-group to determine the supply of coal to the power houses, instructions have been given to explore the possibilities of transporting coal by road to the power projects located within 30 km radius of the coal mines. The project management is preparing to make a proposal in this direction.

Parichha plant got eight thousand tonnes of coal, fourth unit could not be started
Parichha Thermal Power Plant got two more goods trains (eight thousand tonnes) of coal on Thursday. Due to this the deteriorating situation has been resolved. Non-availability of coal could result in closure of a unit. At present, production is being done from three of the four units of the plant. Similarly, production is going on from two of the three units at Bajaj Power Plant at Lalitpur. A unit here has been closed since Tuesday due to a technical fault. At present, 2030 MW of electricity is being produced in both the plants.

Demand of 9000 tonnes per day in Harduaganj, only 3800 tonnes of coal is available
In Harduaganj thermal project Kasimpur, coal has also raised the heat of concern. The gravity of the situation can be gauged from the fact that only one day’s coal remains in stock here. If the goods train does not arrive with coal on the second day, then the units of the power house have to be shut down. Not only this, at present only two units of 250 MW each running here are not producing at full capacity, as these units only require 9000 tonnes of coal per day and supply is getting only 3800 tonnes.

Expansion
