“As power generation and transmission is an essential service, Essar Power has a greater responsibility towards its service to the nation. Essarites continue serving the Nation from our operational sites, and they do so despite the challenges and risk they face due to the pandemic.

Apart from stringent COVID-19 protocols, we have been conducting aggressive vaccination drives at operations sites to protect Essarites from the virus,” said Mr. Kush. S, CEO, Essar Power Ltd.

“This was a proactive step taken by EPHL HR Admin team who facilitated the entire mammoth vaccination drive from cracking the best deal and proactively making all the arrangements,” he added.
