"The required facilities for sustainable running of the plant like fuel handling and transportation systems are ready and the plant will start commercial operation very soon," NTPC said in its press release.

The Khargone plant operates at an efficiency of 41.5 per cent, which is 3.3 per cent higher than the conventional super-critical ones, with steam parameters of 600 degree Celsius temperatures and 270 kg per centimeter square pressure.

The high efficiency will consequence in less coal consumption for generating same amount of electricity with respect to super critical plants and will result in the reduction of 3.3 per cent carbon dioxide emissions.
