To achieve this, NLC India is currently constructing its first coal-based supercritical thermal power plant – NUPPL, at Uttar Pradesh’s Ghatampur tehsil in a joint venture with Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam. The plant will have a capacity of 3×800 MW.
In addition, NLC India is planning to install a 50 MW renewable power plant in its mine reclaimed land. The company has already floated tenders for this project.
NLC India also has plans to add about 2,000 MW of renewable power capacity. This will include solar, wind, and biomass power plants.
The company is also working on integrating renewable power into the main grid. This is a challenge, as renewable power is intermittent and cannot be stored.
Despite the challenges, NLC India is committed to expanding its capacity to meet the rising power demand in India. The company believes that it can play a significant role in ensuring that India has a reliable and sustainable power supply.
