Coal supply to NTPC Talcher Kaniha hit

Thursday, 22 August 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

The coal supply to NTPC Talcher Kaniha from the Kaniha Open Cast Project (KOCP) has been stopped since August 18 as villagers have resorted to a strike at the KOCP to press for various demands. Earlier, the NTPC Talcher Kaniha generation was severely hit due to crisis at the Bharatpur Mine from July 23, 2019 and stoppage of MCL, Talcher Coal Field for almost two weeks.

While four units stopped generation and the rest two units generated about  600 MW with using left out yard stock and railway coal receipts.

After strike was called off from Talcher Coal Mines on  August 7, the station started getting coal from the Lingaraj Mines and Kaniha OCP and the situation improved partially. Still the station is running in critical condition as there is no buildup of coal in the stockyard. 

But due to ongoing strike at Kaniha OCP, coal supply has been severely affected. It may lead to progressive shutdown of units, which will affect the power super supply to various States, including Odisha, said sources.
