OPGC to seek coal linkage extension 1
Odisha Power Generation Corporation (OPGC), a 51:49 (JV) between the Odisha Government and US-based energy major AES will seek extension of bridge linkage of coal till 2020-21 to feed its two 660 MW upcoming super critical units under its ongoing expansion at Ib valley plant near Jharsuguda. Though OPGC has been awarded the Manoharpur and Manoharpur dip side coal blocks, it has applied for bridge linkage since power generation from the expanded units was expected to commence earlier than coal mining.
