Kayamkulam thermal power plant to remain closed indefinitely

Alappuzha: Kayamkulam thermal power plant has been closed indefinitely. It is reported that the production of power using the excess Naphtha was completed by Wednesday night.

There are limited chances for resuming the operation of the power plant as Naphtha will not be collected anymore for operating the plant.

KSEB had not been purchasing power from Kayamkulam thermal power plant for the last 7 years.

KSEB used to avoid purchasing power from Kayamkulam plant as it had been selling power at high rate due to the price hike of Naphtha.

The National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ltd also informed that no more Naphta will be collected for power production. Hence, there is uncertainty over resuming the operation of Kayamkulam power plant.
