Share this on :
NLC India is making efforts to put its more than Rs 17,237.80 crore joint venture (JV) project in Uttar Pradesh back on schedule after COVID-19 induced delays. 
 
Neyveli Uttar Pradesh Power, a 51:49 JV between NLC India and Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam, is setting up a coal-based supercritical thermal power plant with a capacity of 1,980 MW (three x 660 MW) at Ghatampur, in Kanpur Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh. 
 
The original commissioning schedule of Unit-I was December 2020, followed by two units at an interval of six months each. The project was approved by the Centre in July 2016. 
 
The JV has spent a capital expenditure (capex) of Rs 3,525.18 crore in 2019-20. The cumulative expenditure incurred since the beginning of the project up to March 2020 was Rs 9,199.20 crore. 
 
However, the outbreak of COVID-19 impacted the commissioning of Unit-I. 
 
Though the project schedule was impacted by the pandemic, all-out efforts have been made by the management to speed up the project progress and bring it back on schedule by mobilising increased manpower strength of 6,000 as compared to 4,200 during pre- COVID period. 
 
The project progress is also being augmented by utilising the incentives and other measures announced by the Central government to revive the economy. 
 
The JV had signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation for supplying 75 percent of the power from the project. The coal supply is linked to Pachwara south coal block in Jharkhand. Bridge coal linkage of 0.5 million tonne to Ghatampur project for 2020-21 has been approved by the Ministry of Coal. 
 
The remaining quantity will be fulfilled from Talabira-II and -III mines belonging to the company till the commencement of operation of Pachwara south coal block.
