Energising India for a Better Tomorrow
Jindal Power Limited (JPL), a subsidiary of Jindal Steel & Power Ltd. (JSPL), has been contributing significantly to the growing needs of power in the Country.
JPL has set up India's first mega power project in the private sector at Raigarh, Chhattisgarh. The Company has invested approximately Rs. 4338 crore for setting up a 1000 MW power plant, the 1st unit of which commenced commercial operation in December 2007. All four units (250 MW each) were commissioned within a span of nine months.
The fuel supply of the plant is met through its captive coal mines. A 6.9 km conveyor pipeline has been set up for transportation of coal between the mines and the plant. The Company has constructed a 258 km, 400 KV Double Circuit transmission line from the plant to the PGCIL sub-station at Raipur through which power can be sold anywhere in India. For meeting the plant's consumptive water requirement, an 18 m high dam over the Kurket River has been built, 25 km away from the project site.
Jindal Power Limited is expanding its capacity at Tamnar by setting up a 2400 MW thermal power plant at an estimated cost of Rs 13,410 crore. The Company has already placed order on Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) for supply, erection and commissioning of 4X600 MW Boiler Turbine Generation (BTG) package. The existing 1000 MW power plant was set up with four Turbine Generators of 250 MW each, also supplied by BHEL.
JPL has also signed an MoU with the State Government of Jharkhand to set up a 2640 MW thermal power plant.
In the Hydro sector, JPL has signed agreements for development of three hydroelectric projects with combined capacity of 6100 MW in Arunachal Pradesh in joint venture with Hydro Power Development Corporation of Arunachal Pradesh Limited.
Our vision is to establish a presence in other forms of power generation such as gas, hydro, wind, nuclear and solar power, with a focus on hydro and other forms of environment friendly renewable energy sources.
