India’s National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has begun commercial operations at a 500MW thermal power plant in the state of Haryana, India, this week.

The plant is one of the three units that are part of the Indira Gandhi Super Thermal Power Project, which will have a total installed capacity of 1,500MW.

Power from the project will serve the electricity needs of the states of Haryana and Delhi in equal measure.

Work is underway on the remaining two 500MW units that are part of the project.
