Coal shortage affecting captive power plants in Odisha

first_imgSHARE SHARE EMAIL December 08, 2018 Coal-based industries in Odisha are facing acute shortage of the fossil fuel which is affecting operations of several captive power plants in the state, industrialists said here on Saturday.Speaking at a deliberation organised by the Utkal Chamber of Commerce and Industry (UCCI) here, they said that unless the issue is addressed quickly, it would hit the future of many major stakeholders and in turn affect the overall industrial climate under the long-term vision of ‘Make in Odisha’.“Odisha is one of the largest coal producing states in the country. However, it is unfortunate that our own coal-based industries are not getting priority in our own land. It is a serious concern for all of us and we should take it up at appropriate forums at the state and national level with the help of the key stakeholders, said UCCI president Ramesh Mahapatra.The chamber has already flagged the issue with the Odisha Chief Secretary and requested the state government to intervene. If required, the chamber said, it would approach the Union coal minister, he added. In his address, Abhijit Pati, CEO Vedanta Ltd said: “Due to coal scarcity, power plants are operating at 60-70 per cent of their installed capacity which is ultimately hampering the interests of the state and nation. SS Upadhyaya of Jindal Stainless Ltd raised the issue linked with transportation of coal to the designated plants. Non-availability of rakes is worsening the coal crisis in the state. Imported coal often lies stagnant at Paradip, Dhamra and other ports as there are no rakes to transport them. Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL) produces about 140 million tonnes which can eadily cater to the needs of the local industry. However, the entire industrial fraternity requiring coal is reeling under acute shortage as the supplies to the captive power plants by Coal India is only 12-13 million tonnes which is 30 per cent of the requirement. MCL officials could not be reached for comment. coal COMMENTS SHARE Orissa Published on COMMENTlast_img read more
