Tatas Trombay thermal plant conversion gets conditional nod
The Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) attached to the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) has accorded conditional environment clearance to Tata Power for converting the latter´s 500 MW Trombay power plant to operate on coal, in place of low sulphur fuel and heavy stock. Tata Power will await MoEF clearance for Trombay Unit 6´s proposed modernisation plan and thereafter next level decision will be taken. The importance of modernisation needs to be viewed from the point of view of larger interest of ensuring reliable and affordable supply of electricity to the consumer.
