Power

Vedanta is one of India’s largest private sector power generators. The availability of power in India is increasing, but demand outstrips supply leading to a substantial power shortage. Around 280 million people in India do not have electricity connections and the Government aims to supply power to all homes by 2019. 

 

 

Vedanta Ltd. power operations include a 2,400 MW (four units of 600 MW each) thermal coal-based commercial power facility at Jharsuguda with all four units currently operational. The Jharsuguda 2,400 MW power plant, operated at a lower Plant Load Factor (PLF) of 39% during FY 2014-15 due to lower market demand. However, during FY 2015-16 significant capacity is expected to be utilized internally, as we operate the plant for ramp-up of aluminium pot lines.

The company’s power business also include Talwandi Sabo Power Limited (TSPL), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Vedanta Ltd. TSPL had signed a power purchase agreement with the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) for the establishment of 1,980 MW (three units of 660 MW each) thermal coal-based commercial power facilities and one unit of 660 MW is operational while the second unit is under trial run and the third unit will be synchronized in FY 2015-16. The full ramp up will significantly increasing our commercial power volumes.

The power business also includes 270 MW power plant at BALCO’s Korba facility. Out of the two 300 MW units of the 1,200 MW Korba Power Plant destined for commercial power: one 300 MW unit is currently under trial run, and will be commissioned during Q1 FY 2015-16; the second commercial unit is expected to be commissioned during Q2 FY 2015-16.
