Indian power supplier NTPC has confirmed it is maintaining an uninterrupted electricity supply during the Covid-19 crisis.
All 70 of the organisation’s power stations have been mandated to follow social distancing norms and lockdown guidelines to ensure optimal safety can be ensured under the circumstances.
NTPC is also enhancing coal energy production to compensate for an increase in demand.
NTPC Vindhyachal, claimed to be India’s largest power plant, attained 100% plant load factor in April and the firm has also launched a 600MW ‘supercritical’ power station during the Covid-19 crisis.
This is in addition to a ₹250 crore (£26m) donation to the Prime Minister CARES fund focused on Covid-19 relief and containment measures.
