Our Operations > Jhajjar Power Plant

The Jhajjar Power Plant is a 1,320 MW (2 x 660 MW) domestic coal based power project located at Village Khanpur, Dist. Jhajjar, Haryana. Both the units of the plant have been successfully synchronized and the whole plant has achieved Commercial Operation Date (COD) on 19th July 2012. The two units will provide about 270 lakh additional units of electricity daily to the state when operating at rated capacity.

It is the first coal-based power generation project set up by an independent power producer in the state and one of India's first plants that uses supercritical technology. The use of the supercritical technology in the plant helps increase the energy efficiency therefore reducing carbon emissions. The plant in addition to using supercritical technology has made a voluntary decision of installing flue gas desulphurization (FGD) despite a significant additional financial implication, even though the Indian regulations did not require this. This has helped to further minimize the environmental impact of the operations.

The Jhajjar Power Plant was also awarded the CNBC TV 18's Infrastructure Excellence Award for the year 2012 in the main category of Energy & Power.

Various community engagement activities have been initiated around the plant. These are primarily focused on core areas such as education, health, women empowerment, livelihood restoration and environment awareness.

The key programmes include child nutritional programme, informal education programme, maternal and child health programme and other environmental initiatives like sanitation drives, different competition on environment and the like.
A few other initiatives organized are mobile outreach services, Veterinary camp, eye checkup camps, general health camps and blood donation camps.
Training is also provided to use latest technology in agriculture.
