The Bajaj Hindusthan group’s Rs 16,000 crore Lalitpur Power Generation Co (LPGCL) recently commissioned its first unit (of 660 MW) at the supercritical thermal plant at Mirchwara, in Uttar Pradesh’s Lalitpur district. The project has come up on an area of 1,300 acres of land. This is the first major unit to be commissioned by the private sector in the present Akhilesh Yadav government. The other two units of the plant are in an advanced stage of completion and are scheduled for commissioning in December 2015 and April 2016 respectively. The main plant package is being executed by BHEL, while other important packages have been undertaken by L&T, Simplex and Paharpur.
