Essar Power Hazira’s 2×135 MW power project touches 100% capacity utilisation
BANGALORE: Essar Power Hazira Ltd, a subsidiary of Essar Power Ltd, today announced that its 2×135 MW power project in Hazira was now operating consistently at close to 100% capacity utilisation. The achievement is significant because it comes close on the heels of the commissioning of the second unit, which occurred just three months ago. It is also an indicator for the increased capacity utilisation of its captive client—Essar Steel’s 10 million tonne Hazira Steel Complex.
The plant can run on multiple fuels, like coal, corex fines and Corex gas, simultaneously. It can also utilize excess gases from the process units of Steel making operations. Over the last few weeks, it has lived up to its green commitment by using a higher proportion of byproducts from the steelmaking process, including coal fines and Corex gas.
