• Coal shortage over, UP overcomes power crisis

    The UP government on Monday claimed of having overcome the power crisis orginated out of coal shortage at its 2,420 Mw Anpara power plant. The UP Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam (UPRVUN) said that but for one unit of 500 Mw, all other six units have started working.

    Managaing director, UPRVUNL, AP Mishra said only unit number 7 of 500 Mw is shut down, while the rest have been fired up and synchronized with the grid. He said that the seventh unit too will start by Tuesday evening.

    The shortage of coal at the state owned power plant had partially derailed the power supply to the state. While the demand has been to the tune of around 15000 Mw, the state was in the position to wheel in around 12000 Mw leaving a gap of around 3000 Mw.

    The shortage had forced the state government to resort to rostering, not only in the rural but also urban areas. Marshall Faulk Authentic Jersey
