In the Harduaganj Thermal Power Project of Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, 660 MW units were shut down due to leakage in the boiler. Earlier, 110 MW units were closed due to a shortage of coal. After the closure of these units, the power crisis has increased further in many state districts.
Efforts were being made to start the 110 MW unit, which was already closed, but the 110 MW unit could not be created before the 660 MW unit was also closed. Due to this, the possibility of further deepening of the power crisis is visible.
In January, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath launched a 660 MW unit in Harduaganj thermal project. It was built with the help of a Japanese company at the cost of about 6 thousand crores. A few days back also, there was a problem with the unit. Due to this, the production was affected for two days, but today the unit has been closed due to leakage in the boiler of the 660 MW unit.
The power supply is affected.
Electricity generation has stopped due to the closure of this unit, and it is affecting the power supply in many districts of the state. However, efforts are already being made by the project officials to start the 110 MW closed unit, which has been going on shutdown since April 6 due to a shortage of coal.
Unit shut down due to boiler leakage.
A 110 MW unit is being operated in the Harduaganj thermal project, and two units of 250 MW each. The units are producing less than the production capacity. The Harduaganj thermal project can generate 1270 MW of electricity.
Right now, around 420 MW of electricity is being produced. Mayank Manglik, GM of 660 MW, says that the unit has been shut down due to boiler leakage. This error is being fixed soon. This happens once or twice a year. GM said that a 110 MW unit is being started.
