NTPC acquires Jhabua Power

This will bring the IPP’s total installed capacity to over 70GW.

India’s largest independent power producer NTPC acquired Jhabua Power Limited through the Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process, which would support its long-term capacity goals.

In a statement, NTPC said Jhabua Power has an operational thermal power capacity of 1 x 600MW in Seoni, Madhya Pradesh. The acquisition brings NTPC’s total installed capacity to 70, 064 megawatts. 

“With a target set to achieve installed capacity of 130 GW by 2032 from a diversified portfolio, NTPC has been exploring various opportunities for capacity expansion through both organic and inorganic routes,” it said.
