CLP India’s Jhajjar plant operational

The only multinational company operating in India’s power generation space, CLP Power India Pvt. Ltd., has announced that the first unit of its 1320 MW power plant at Jhajjar in Haryana had begun operations.

The second unit of the Jhhajar (660x2MW) plant will become operational by the middle of this year, CLP said in a release.

CLP India’s managing director Rajiv Mishra told Mint: “Our plan for the next five years is to grow our portfolio from a little over 2600 MW today to around 10000 MW.”

He said this growth would be powered by both conventional as well as renewable sources. In the conventional space, the company will bid for the ultra mega power project (UMPP) that is proposed for the state of Orissa and will look at adding around 1200 MW to its 655 MW gas-fired power plant in Gujarat.
