Power companies get nod to use surplus coalAugust 14th, 2008 - 11:23 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 14 (IANS) An empowered group of ministers (EGoM) Thursday decided to allow power companies to utilise surplus coal from their captive blocks in other power projects. The decision will benefit promoters of ultra-mega power projects like Reliance Power of the Reliance-Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, which is operating the 4,000 MW Sasan mega power project in Madhya Pradesh.
Reliance Power spokesperson Venkatesh Somayaji confirmed that they were aware of the decision, but declined to comment on whether Sasan had surplus coal.
“If we have extra coal, we can choose to either enhance capacity at Sasan or use it for additional project elsewhere,” he said.
