Power industry body ICPPA has requested the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to take steps to address the issue of coal availability and its supply. The Indian Captive Power Producers Association (ICPPA) members include players from key sectors such as steel and aluminium.
In the letter to PMO, dated October 4, ICPPA said aluminium is a highly power-intensive industry and around 14,500 kWh (kilowatt hour) units are used for the production of 1 tonne of aluminium metal, which requires 11.7 tonne coal.
“We request your support for an immediate resumption of coal supply for the industry to sustain operations and rakes allocation on priority for optimum coal materialisation at par with IPPs (independent power Producers) as per the FSAs (Fuel Supply Agreement)”. Read More
