NPCIL To Setup New Power Plant In Madhya Pradesh

The Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) has decided to set up an atomic station in Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh to generate 1,400 MW power.

The setting up of the first nuclear power station in the state assumes significance owing to electricity shortage of over 1,000 MW. Besides, there has also been shortage of coal to run its thermal power stations.

The NPCIL has sent communication to set up an atomic power station to the state government, which in turn has made Madhya Pradesh Power Generating Company Limited (MPPGCL) the nodal agency to facilitate the execution of the project.

“Our company has been made the nodal agency to help NPCIL to set up the atomic power station (700 MW x 2 )at Chutka in Mandla,” MPPGCL Chairman-cum-Managing Director R B Agrawal told PTI today.
