TPCL operates two units (Unit 2 and Unit 3) of 120 MW each in Jojobera power plant and supplies power to Tata Steel Limited (TSL). The commission granted approval for installation of the flue-gas desulfurisation (FGD) system. However, it did not approve any specific amount of additional expenditure at this stage and will consider the additional expenditure on the issue, subject to prudence check at the time of tariff determination, once the commissioning of the FGD system is over.
