DVC seeks coal for its Koderma unit

In order to resume power production at its first 500 mw unit of Koderma Thermal power station, DVC has urged union ministries to provide six rakes of coal every day.

DVC said it has written a letter to the power and coal ministries at the centre to procure the required amount of coal in order to start commercial operation of the plant at the earliest.

The 500 mw unit of DVC's 1,000 mega watt (500x500) capacity Koderma plant has not been able to operate in full capacity owing to shortage and non-availability of coal, said Rabindra Nath Sen, chairman of DVC, after inspecting the plant at Koderma.

The present production of 100 mega watt is being done by diverting six rakes of coal meant for DVC's own plant elsewhere, to Koderma.

The 100 mega watt of power thus generated has been supplied to the Bihar Sharif grid in Bihar and DVC's own grid. The second 500 mega watt unit of the plant which is nearing completion may be commissioned either in late February or early March, 2013.

A top official of the firm said DVC chairman has also moved the government and State Pollution Control Board for pollution clearance certificate, mandatory for running a power plant.
