Captive power plants request govt to normalise coal supply

A captive power producers’ association has requested the government to normalise coal supplies to captive power plant-based industries while pointing out that if the supply of fossil fuel is not restored immediately, it would lead to an irrevocable collateral damage of these national assets.

In a recent representation to the government, the Indian Captive Power Producers Association (ICPPA) highlighted the issue of insufficient coal rake supplies to CPP-based industries at levels of 40 to 50 per cent.

“ICPPA in a recent representation to…Government of Indian has sought urgent support for normalising the coal supplies to Captive Power Plant (CPP) based industries….If this is not restored immediately, it would lead to an irrevocable collateral damage of these national assets,” it said in a statement.

In the last few months, the supplies meant for CPPs and industries have been either stopped or significantly curtailed for diversion of these to the power sector, which has led to a perilous situation for other coal-based power generators, adversely impacting their industrial operations.
