NLC India has achieved a critical milestone towards commissioning its 1,000 MW (2X500 MW) of Neyveli New Thermal Power Project (NNTPP) by successfully conducting the boiler light-up test for the First unit with secondary fuel on December 28, 2018 at Neyveli.
This is the first 500 MW lignite fired power plant in the country. It can generate 1000000 units of power in an hour. This power project will replace the existing more than five decades old TPS-I (600MW) at Neyveli.
NLC India is engaged in the business of lignite mining and power generation. At present, the company has four opencast lignite mines.
