KOLKATA, Jan 13 (PTI)

STATE-RUN power pro­ducer NTPC Ltd has sought more coal from Coal In­dia sub­sidiary North­ern Coal­fields Ltd (NCL) un­der the Flexi Util­i­sa­tion of Do­mes­tic Coal scheme, a top of­fi­cial has said.

NTPC Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Gur­deep Singh has urged NCL to ex­tend its sup­port fur­ther to the up­county power sta­tions of NTPC in­clud­ing Mauda Ther­mal Power Sta­tion (TPS) in Ma­ha­rash­tra un­der the Flexi Uti­liza­tion of Do­mes­tic Coal scheme, a NCL of­fi­cial told PTI. Singh was on a visit this week­end to Ni­gahi Coal mine of NCL that feeds coal to NTPC’s Vind­hy­achal Su­per Ther­mal Power Sta­tion (STPS) -- In­dias largest ther­mal power sta­tion. Mauda su­per­crit­cal ther­mal power sta­tion has a ca­pac­ity of 2,320 MW (500 MW x 2 and 660 MW x 2). How­ever, the power sta­tion is presently op­er­at­ing at nearly half its ca­pac­ity al­though NTPC is hope­ful of mak­ing use of its full ca­pac­ity by the end of this fis­cal. As on De­cem­ber 31, 2018, the plant had utilised just 1,160 MW out of the to­tal 2,320 MW ca­pac­ity.
