Punjab to set up 1,320 mw power plant at Hajipur

The Punjab government is to set up a super-critical thermal-based power plant at Hajipur in Mukerian town of Hoshiarpur district. The Punjab State Power Corporation (PSPCL) is in the process of creating a special purpose vehicle (SPV) called Mukerian Powers Limited for the purpose. The proposed power-generating capacity of the plant has been fixed at 1,320 mega watts (mw). The Corporation is hopeful of rolling out the first unit (660 mw) by 2018.

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) team had recently cleared the project site. The acquisition of 900 acres is expected to start soon. Deviating from the trend of setting up thermal plants by involving private companies, the PSPCL has decided to execute the project on its own after almost a decade.

It was in 2004 when the erstwhile Punjab State Electricity Board (later unbundled) started working on stage-II of the Lehra Mohabbat project. The PSPCL is already running three State-owned thermal power plants at Rupnagar (1,260 mw), Bathinda (440 mw) and Lehra Mohabbat (920 mw) with a collective generating capacity of 2,620 mw. The Mukerian project would raise the capacity to 3,490 mw.
