Essar Power commissions Hazira unit, completes 270mw project
Essar Power today said its subsidiary at Hazira in Gujarat has commissioned the second and last unit of 135 mw, making the 270-mw project fully operational now.

The company said commissioning was done in a record 53 days - from IBR hydrotest to final synchronisation - making it among the swiftest in the industry. The first unit was commissioned in July last year.

With this, the 270-mw multi-fuel power plant, which is 100 per cent captive to Essar Steel Hazira, is now fully operational. The plant runs on multiple fuels, like coal (both domestic and imported) and corex gas, simultaneously.

Essar Power has a target capacity of 6,100 mw, and this commissioning makes 80 per cent, or 4,840 mw, operational now.

On the commissioning, company Chief Executive K V B Reddy said over the last two years, increased coal availability as well as strong operational efficiencies have helped improve performance significantly.

Essar Power has operational capacity of 4,840 mw, of which 3,240 mw is coal-based and 1,600 mw gas-based. Its operating plants are located at Mahan in Chhatisgarh and at Hazira, Salaya and Vadinar (all in Gujarat).
