CISF takes over security of critical NTPC power plant in MP

An armed contingent of 130 Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel on Tuesday took over the security of the country’s first ultra-super critical thermal power plant in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh, officials said. The paramilitary force will provide a counter-terror cover to the facility located in Selda village of the district, about 320 kms from state capital Bhopal.

The coal-based thermal power plant was commissioned in August last year and is run by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).

“A contingent of 130 armed CISF personnel led by a Deputy Commandant rank officer will guard the power plant. A formal induction ceremony took place at the site on Tuesday,” a senior CISF officer said.

As per NTPC, the plant is “the country’s first ultra-super critical unit having capacity of 660 MW. This plant operates at efficiency of 41.5 per cent which is 3.3 per cent higher than the conventional super-critical ones…”
