CESC to set up 10.6mw solar plant in TN

Tags: News
CESC, the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group owned power flagship is now in the process of setting up a 10.6 mw solar plant in Tamil Nadu. The self-rotating solar panel project will be commissioned in the next month itself and the company is investing nearly Rs 95 crore in the project, Sanjiv Goenka, group chairman, said in Kolkata. The company had earlier commissioned its first solar unit of 9 mw in Gujrat.

“IT will be a small plant with a capacity of generating aro­und 10 MW of power. If things move the way it has been envisaged, we will be in a position to commission it in March. Our first solar plant in Gujrat is doing well already,” Goenka said.

Haldia Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of CESC, on its parts, is in an advanced stage of pre-commissioning the first unit (300 MW) of a 600 MW thermal power plant at Haldia. The first unit is expected to generate power from the 3rd quarter of the current calendar. Unit 2 is also under erection and is expected to generate power by November, 2014.

Meanwhile, the company has recorded a Q3 PAT of Rs 107 crore, up from Rs 101 crore earned in the corresponding quarter, last fiscal. The T&D loss during the quarter remained at the same level of the corresponding period of the previous year.

Goenka said that Au Bon Pain Café is also well set to expand into Delhi by March, 2014. Au Bon Pain Café, at present, has 29 operational outlets across high streets, malls, business institutes and technology parks. In Kolkata also it has recently come up with two outlets.
