Tripura power plant snag causes supply cut to B’desh

Agartala, Jul 19 (IANS) | Publish Date: 7/20/2018 12:44:16 AM IST
The 726-MW gas-based power plant in Tripura is facing technical hiccups causing less supply to neighbouring Bangladesh, an official said.
“A transformer of the 726 MW-capacity Palatana power project in southern Tripura has been faulty since last week, causing less supply of power to Bangladesh,” Tripura State Electricity Corporation’s senior engineer Mahananda Debbarma told IANS. “Currently we are supplying 120 MW of electricity to Bangladesh. On many occasions we have supplied more power than the stipulated 160 MW,” he said.
State-owned ONGC Tripura Power Company (OTPC) since 2013 has been operating the 726 MW gas-based combined-cycle power plant in southern Tripura’s Palatana, about 65 km south of Agartala. OTPC’s MD Satyajit Ganguly said the faulty transformer would be set right on Thursday and normal supply would be restored tomorrow. “We are currently generating 550 MW in the Palatana power plant due to insufficient supply of natural gas by the ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation),” Ganguly said.
