Internal Press Release

The Captive power plant of Indian Charge Chrome Limited generated 2523 MWH of electricity on May 30th which is an all time record for a single day. It is equivalent to a plant load factor of 96.34%, which far exceeds the national average for thermal power plants. After meeting ICCL's internal requirement of 39 MW, the balance 66.12 MW was fed into the grid. On an average ICCL's power plant feeds 60 MW into the grid.

Commenting on the achievement, Subhrakant Panda, Joint Managing Director, ICCL said: Our endeavor will be to maintain constant high generation, especially during a peak demand period like summer season, so that maximum electricity is fed into the grid at the load centre.

ICCL's 108 MW captive power plant is located at Choudwar next to Odisha's major load centre of the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack. Though originally conceived as a CPP, the power plant has been supplementing the state's electricity requirements ever since it was made operational in 1989.
