Despite the steep rise in Covid cases, the NTPC Barh has claimed to ensure uninterrupted power generation in its plant while implementing various precautionary measures for workplace safety.
“Power generation from two units of stage-2 (1320MW) surpassed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) target with overall generation of around 7804 million units in fiscal 20-21. The third unit of 660MW (Unit-1 of stage-1) has achieved full load in April and Bihar will receive an additional power from this 660MW very soon,” Abhishek Shukla of NTPC Limited, Barh, said in a statement.
The officials claimed that though many employees, their family members and associates have been affected due to Covid- 19, the plant personnel showed strong resolve and continued with their jobs.
NTPC (Barh unit) executive director Prem Parkash said: “The second wave of Covid-19 pandemic has impacted our internal setup significantly. However, the frontline engineers produced uninterrupted power, meeting the demand in this difficult time of pandemic.”
Despite internal challenges, the NTPC Barh management implemented several social welfare initiatives.
