Coal & gas shortages hits a total of 4500MW power projects

Thirty seven independent power projects worth a total 46,748 MW capacity, have been stuck due to various reasons including shortage of coal linkage, captive mines , insufficient gas availability and increase in imported coal prices due to resource nationalism of source countries.

Among the total 37 projects, 11 are likely to default on account of coal related issues, ranging from insufficient supply of coal to outright denial of coal by the supplier. These include Lanco Power Limited`s 600 MW Amarkantak-I project, Adani Enterprises` 660 MW Mundra project units and Jaiprakash Power Venture`s 1,320 MW Karchana steam project. Apart from these mentioned projects, 6 other plants have been struggling to overcome the rise in Indonesian coal prices. While 3 of these projects are being developed by Adani enterprises, the rest include two 4,000 MW ultra-mega power projects under implementation by Tata Power and Reliance Power
