The Haryana Power Generation Corporation Ltd (HPGCL) is facilitating an addition of 1,320 MW generating capacity in the state through a Super Critical Thermal Power Plant being set up at Jhajjar.
The plant would be set up by an Independent Power Producer CLP Power India Pvt Ltd.
Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary (Power) and HPGCL Chairman Madhusudan Prasad, who had a coordination meeting with officers of CLP Power India Pvt Ltd today, said the project, comprising two units of 660 MW, was the first power generation project in Haryana based on the latest Super Critical Technology.
He said power plants based on super critical technology consume less coal per unit of electricity generated, leading to lower emissions, lower cost of generation and higher efficiency.
He said the project was expected to commence generation by December 2011.
He said CLP had already brought in Rs 750 crore as its equity upfront and added that mega power project status had already been granted to this project by Union Ministry of Power.
