NTPC will commence commercial operations of 1,500 MW Indira Gandhi Super Thermal Power Project at Jhajjar in Haryana after commissioning the third 500 MW unit on Friday.

With this, all the three units in the first stage shall be commissioned and commercial operation started. (This means all the power generated would be commercially sold now.)

There is a future provision for further expansion of 2 x 660MW under the second stage, said a senior NTPC official.

The project, Aravali Power Company Private Ltd, is jointly held by NTPC with 50 per cent share and the remaining equally shared between Haryana Power Generation Corporation Ltd and Indraprastha Power Generation Company Ltd.

The electricity from the unit is supplied to Haryana, Delhi and other northern States. The coal-fired stations received fuel from Mahanadi Coalfields in Odisha. Power evacuation from the project takes place through two associated 400 KV double circuit transmission system to Daultabad in Haryana and Mundka in Delhi.

The first unit was commissioned on October 31, 2010, after 39 months from the date of investment approval. The second unit was commissioned on November 5, 2011.
