Newly constructed units of Kali Sindh Thermal Power Station in Jhalawar and Chhabra Super Power Station in Baran district of Kota would start power generation by September this year.

The generation of power in these two units would be able to provide sufficient power in the state, Rajasthan Rajya Vidhyut Utpadan Nigam Limited ( RRVUNL) discom chairman NM Mathur said.

“The newly constructed 250-MW capacity unit 3 of Chhabra Super Power Station in Baran was supposed to start power generation by August, but continuous rains hit the construction works, which halted the power generation in the current month,” he said.

Chhabra Super Power Station is expected to start power generation by September, Mathur said adding “at present, Chhabra Power Station has two operational units of 250 MW each”.

Mathur also said that the unit 1st of Kali Sindh thermal power station would start generating power by September.

The power generation from the units of Kali Sindh thermal power station and Chhabra Super Power Station would add 850 MW of additional power to the existing capacity of the State, he said adding at present, the state has a capacity of 4,478 MW power generation.

The project cost of unit 3 and 4 of Chhabra Super Power Station is about Rs 2,900 crore, whereas Rs 7,700 crore has already been spent on the construction of units 1 and 2 of Kali Sindh Thermal Power Station, Mathur said.

“The generation of power in these two units would increase power generation in the state, and the laying of around 8.5 kilometers long railway track from Jhalawar railway station to Kali Sindh site for transportation of coal is also expected to be completed by September,” he added.
