Reportedly, fourth unit of 660-MW capacity of NTPC Limited’s Barh thermal power plant in Patna, Bihar, has been synchronised with the grid.
This is likely to result in supply of an additional 405 MW electricity for Bihar. Under the synchronisation process, the plant was connected to the grid to see the load factor, and to ensure all other aspects were working as per protocol. This super critical based power project has a total installed capacity of 3,300 MW with five units of 660-MW each. Three units are already operational and have been contributing over 1,600 MW electricity to Bihar. The last unit is expected to be operational in 2023-24.
