The Madhya Pradesh Power requested for rationalization of the coal linkage to the plant by shifting higher grade coal of the Korea-Rewa mines in the state to the Korba field mines in Chhattisgarh, which has lower (`F`) grade coal.
In view of the recent hike in prices of grades `A` & `B` of coal, it has become economically unviable for the state-owned firm's thermal power project in Birsingpur, namely, the Sanjay Gandhi thermal power station.
However, for the power utility`s Amarkantak TPS and Sarni TPS, it was concluded that no change in linkage has been envisaged for the time being.
MPPGCL`s Sanjay Gandhi TPS, with an annual coal quantity of 6.4 million tonnes, currently gets 60% coal supplied from the Korba area of Chhattisgarh and 40% from Korea Rewa mines of M.P., while the Sarni TPS, with an ACQ of 6.6 MT gets its supply from the WCL mines in MP and Maharashtra.
