Poor coal supply forces NTPC to reduce output in Bihar and West Bengal plant

Saturday, 08 Oct 2011

ET reported that inadequate coal dispatches have forced state run NTPC to slash output at two of its plants in Bihar and West Bengal, affecting power supply to parts of northern, eastern and western regions during the peak festival season.

Output at key plants has been falling of late because of poor coal supplies. Some 35 of India's 86 thermal stations have a coal stock position that will barely last seven days.

Stocks at 26 of these plants are just enough to generate for the next four days, according to the Central Electricity Authoirty. The installed capacity of these 86 thermal power stations is 85,477 MW.
