Tata Power Starts Railway Infrastructure Project

Maithon Power (MPL), a 74:26 joint venture (JV) between Tata Power and Damodar Valley (DVC), has commissioned both of the 2x525MW coal-fired units at Maithon. MPL bears the testimony to execution of the group’s first ever Greenfield power project in the eastern region. MPL is also credited with the first successful implementation of the public-private partnership (PPP) model in the field of power generation in India.

To ensure reliable coal supply for sustainable operations of the plant, MPL had planned a railway infrastructure project spanning over 20km, crossing NH2, dedicated freight corridor line of Indian Railways and consisting of 25 bridges and finally connecting with the grand chord line of Eastern Railway at Thaparnagar and Mugma stations, which was approved by the railways in 2010.
