Salaya power plant : 1,200 MW thermal power plant in Gujarat
The Salaya project is a 1200 MW (2X600 MW) imported coal-based thermal power plant located in Jamnagar district in Gujarat. It has a 25-year PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) with GUVNL (Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ld), which means that the plant is responsible for supplying about 10% of the state’s power requirement. The project continues to ensure over 80% availability to its anchor customer, GUVNL. Among the many awards that the plant has won, the CII’s Excellent Energy Efficient Unit award is the most significant. The Salaya plant has been awarded for its environment credentials. It has been recognised for being the lowest Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emitter amongst all coal fired power plants in the country.
