New Delhi, June 7
L&T Group firm Nabha Power Ltd (NPL) on Thursday said it has been forced to shut a 700 MW unit of Rajpura thermal power station due to shortage of coal.
NPL, which has been supplying power to Punjab from Rajpura plant since 2014, shut down unit-2 of 700 MW on June 3, 2018 due to acute shortage of coal, a company statement said. The plant has two units of 700 MW each.
NPL has been facing coal crisis since last year forcing it to operate the plant at critical levels of coal stocks i.e. less than 7 days. It was forced to shut down both units alternatively for 54 days during September to November 2017.
It said these shutdowns were caused primarily because of Coal India restricting supplies to 75% of the contracted commitments and according preference to Central and State firms. — PTI
