State-owned Odisha Power Generation Corporation has shut down one of the two units of its Stage-I thermal power plant at Banharpalli in Jharsuguda district on Sunday night due to coal crunch. As per media reports with no tangible improvement in supply of the fossil fuel by Mahanadi Coalfields Limited, resumption of power generation from the closed unit in the immediate future appears bleak. Sources said “If the current situation prevails for a few more days, we will be forced to shut down another unit within a week.”

Despite best of efforts, MCL could manage to deliver 14,000 tonnes of coal on Monday against OPGC’s daily requirement of 24,000 tonnes.
