GMR starts 2nd unit of Kamalanga plant

The GMR Group is establishing 3x350 MW coal-based thermal power plant at Kamalanga in Odisha's Dhenkanal District. The first unit of 350 MW commenced generation on 30 April 2013. Whereas, the second 350 MW unit of GMR Kamalanga Energy Limited (GKEL) was declared commercially operational on 11 November 2013. Power produced from GKEL is being supplied to GRIDCO Limited in Odisha in line with the long-term power purchase agreement (PPA). Besides Odisha, GKEL would supply power to Haryana, Bihar and other parts of the country. GKEL secured coal linkage for all its 1050 MW capacity by signing fuel supply agreements with Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd. Projects totalling 5038 MW are under implementation. Commissioning of GKEL's second unit follows close on the heels of the synchronisation of the second unit of GMR's 2x300 MW EMCO Energy at Warora in Chandrapur district of Maharashtra.
