Essar Power completes 1,200 MW Mahan power plant project

Essar Power has said it has completed its Rs 80 billion capex programme for its Mahan power plant project with a commissioning of the plant’s second 600 MW unit.

In a statement, the Ruia family-promoted company said both units of the project are operational and supported by an end-to-end raw material sourcing and evacuation infrastructure.

The statement further said the second unit is supplied by Harbin Electric and is designed to perform at optimum efficiency with domestic coal from pithead mines in the region.

The project will provide direct employment to about 250 people, and indirect employment to around 1,250 more, thus spurring ancillary development in the area. Essar Power also announced the completion of railway siding for the project.
