NTPC synchronises one more unit of 3,300 MW power plant in Bihar with grid

NTPC Limited has successfully synchronised a 660 MW unit of its supercritical thermal power plant (STPP) at Stage I of the Barh project in Bihar with the grid.

NTPC has been setting up five units with 660 MW capacity each, spread across 3,200 acres of land at Barh in Patna district. The construction work of three units of stage-I of the project was delayed due to contractual, execution and timeline issues with Russian firm Technoprom Export which was supposed to develop them, while two units of stage-II (2×660 MW) of Barh STPP have already been commissioned and are presently under operation. The remaining two units under Stage I would be made operational by the end of March 2022,
