PORT BLAIR, SEPT 13: The 20 MW Suryachakra Power Plant, Bambooflat has started giving 3.5 MW load from today afternoon i.e. 13.9.2017, which will eliminate power cuts during night hours i.e. from 1145 hrs. to 0600 hrs. One more 1.6 MW DG Unit of M/s. Sudhir Reddy Genset Consortium is expected to give load of about 1.2 MW by tomorrow evening which will reduce load shedding further. One more DG set of this Power House is likely to be commissioned by Sunday evening. Similarly, the second 5 MW DG Set of M/s. Suryachakra Power Plant, is also expected to give power supply to Electricity Department Grid by Sunday.

 

M/s. New Bharat, Mumbai, has procured new 2×1 MW DG Sets which have already reached Port Blair and are likely to be commissioned and start generation in 7 – 8 days thereby substantially reducing the power crisis at Port Blair and South Andaman. Thus, starting from today, the power situation will steadily improve in the next few days.
