Telangana State Transco and Genco chairman and managing director D Prabhakar Rao on Friday said the power utilities were fully geared up to provide uninterrupted supply despite mounting tension over coronavirus.
He directed the zonal and circle heads to open control stations in their respective offices to take care of emergencies. The CMD said since uninterrupted supply was an important necessity as part of measures to counter Covid-19, preventive and regular maintenance activities should be continued to ensure 24×7 supply to all categories of consumers.
“ The Telangana state load dispatch centre (TSLDC) acts as a state electricity control centre (SECC) to continuously monitor the power supply position. Overhauls or new works in all hydel and thermal plants will be taken up only after the coronavirus scare eases. All power generating stations should establish the control rooms headed by chief engineers to take care of emergencies,” he said.
Prabhakar Rao said coal and chemical stocks should be maintained in power stations to meet the requirements of next 15 days.
