Nalco closes captive power plant

Navratna CPSE National Aluminium Company Limited is faced with coal shortage leading to the closure of three units of the company’s captive power plant and curtailment of production.

While the aluminium major required at least 17,500 MT of coal everyday, it is getting only 13,000 MT from Bharatpur mines of Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd.

The company had to close down three units of its captive power plant, a Nalco official said adding that each of the units has a production capacity of 120 MW.

“The coal crunch is affecting Nalco and its profitability,” Nalco CMD Tapan Kumar Chand said on the sidelines of a function here.
