NTPC Kahagaon receives 9 wagons of soil instead of coal

Tuesday, 13 Dec 2011

NTPC's Kahagaon unit received nine wagons of soil instead of coal from Eastern Coal India Raniganj colliery, a senior official of the power major.

Mr T Gopal Krishnan assistant GM fuel management of NTPC said that a rail rake containing 59 wagons had arrived at the NTPC plant in Bihar's Bhagalpur district via the merry go round rail route from Ukhra in West Bengal. During unloading, nine wagons were found to have soil in them instead of coal.

Mr Krishnan added that “While the coal consignment from 50 wagons have been unloaded, the nine wagons filled with soil have been left untouched. ECL has been intimated about the incident and asked to visit Kahalgaon to investigate the matter.”

The 2340 MW Kahalhgaon plant receives 11 to 15 rail rakes per day to meet coal demand, but this was the first time that such an incident took place.
