Essar Power Ltd built the plant, which is located in Madhya Pradesh’s Singrauli district, at a cost of more than Rs 8000 crore. It requires approximately 5.5 million tpy of domestic coalto generate full load.

KVB Reddy, CEO of Essar Power, said: “We are delighted that the entire plant is stabilised now and is capable to run at 100% capacity. Increased availability of affordable coal will help us ensure sustained operations at Mahan and fulfil our commitment to supply low-cost power to the nation. We are sincerely thankful to the government for making e-auction coal available at prices that are in line with the current market scenario. Enhanced coal production and supply are welcome developments for the power sector and will help stranded power projects.”

Essar Power’s operational capacity in India now stands at 3745 MW across six coal-fired and gas-fired plants. The company is currently developing the 2 x 600 MW Tori plant in Jharkhand, and the remaining 2 x 30 MW units of the 120 MW Paradip power project.
