Buoyed by the success of its 4x250 MW plant, JPL has further expanded its presence in Tamnar with a 2,400 MW (4X600 MW) thermal power plant. With the completion of the mega expansion project, the Groups installed capacity now stands at 37.6 Billion Units of Electricity annually, i.e. 3.58% of India’s Electricity Generation in 2014-15. The completion of 2400 MW expansion project has taken Jindal Power Limited’s (JPL) installed capacity to 3400 MW, thereby making it one of the largest private power producer in the State of Chhattisgarh. JPL has emerged as a best performer in Ministry of Power and Central Electricity Authority project execution excellence study and won two National Awards- Gold Shield and Silver Shield for early completion of Thermal Power Projects. The 2400 MW super thermal power project was completed in a record time.
To optimize its operation, the company has adopted leading edge technologies, efficiency processes and world best practices in project execution and management, thereby setting new benchmarks in India’s power sector. JPL has consistently topped the Central Electricity Authority’s highest plant load factor list among the major thermal power plants (above 200 MW capacities) in India.
JPL aims to emerge as a significant player in the power industry based on technical and managerial capabilities thereby contributing towards nation building.
