Jindal Power Limited (JPL), a company promoted by 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 Tamnar, Raigarh, Chhattisgarh. The company has invested approx. Rs. 4310 crore for setting up a 1000 MW thermal power plant which commenced commercial operation of the 1st unit in December 2007 and all four units (250 MW each) within a short span of nine months.
The fuel supply of the plant is met through its captive coal mines. About 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. 25 kms away from the project-site, an 18 m high dam over the river Kurket has been built, to meet the plant's water requirements.
Jindal Power Limited plans to add a 2400 MW Thermal Power plant to the existing capacity of the 1000 MW thermal power plant at Tamnar at an estimated cost of Rs 13,410 crore. The company has already placed an order with 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 a 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 6100 MW projects in Arunachal Pradesh in a joint venture with the Hydro Power Development Corporation of Arunachal Pradesh Limited (HPDCAPL) on a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer basis.
Our vision is to establish a presence in other forms of power generation such as gas, wind, nuclear and solar with a focus on hydro and other forms of environment friendly renewable energy sources.
