New gas-based plant at Yelahanka to start in 2018

Next time the thermal power plants in Udupi and Ballari stop production owing to technical problems, Bengaluru may not have to face power cuts. It´ll be in a more comfortable position once production begins in 2018 at the 350-MW gas-based power plant coming up in Yelahanka.Meanwhile, the Karnataka Power Corporation Limited is also considering a proposal to convert the defunct diesel-generating station at Yelahanka into a gas-based one. The proposal that will involve dismantling of the diesel-generating set and replacement of the engines, is expected to cost Rs 1,570 crore and gas will be supplied by GAIL. ´A decision will be taken based on financial viability and economy of the project. However, we are going ahead with the 350 MW station project,´a senior KPCL official said.
