Thermal Power generation
Status: Under Implementation
Promoter: Rashi Steel & Power, formerly known as Rashi Strips
Project: Implementation of a captive power project
Capacity: 43 MW
Location: Village Paraghat and Beltukri, dist. Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh
Consultants: Grass Roots Research and Creation India
Current Status: Civil work is in progress and the total project is scheduled for completion in 4 years. According to MoEF sources, total land requirement is 199 acres, out of which 77 acres has been acquired and the remaining 122 acres is under acquisition. The power requirement will be 46 MW. Out of the 46 MW power, 43 MW will be produced by the coal based captive power plant and shortfall of 3 MW to be met from state grid of Chhattisgarh electricity board. The rejects from the coal washery is about 18000 TPA. This will be blended with 20% of imported raw coal. Then the mix will be recycled to captive power plant of 1×43 MW for feeding. Dust collected from all dust collecting system consists of iron ore fines will be sent back to the raw pellet mix. The fly ash generation from the power plant is 26,000 TPA which will be sold to the brick manufacturers. The captive power project is a part of its Rs. 5,400 million integrated steel plant.
