JSW Energy and Jaypee Group announced they had signed a memorandum of understanding for three operating plants – the 300-Mw Baspa stage-II plant, the 1,091-Mw Karcham Wangtoo plant (both hydro power plants) and the 500-Mw Bina thermal power plant. The deal was signed following a meeting between JSW Energy chief Sajjan Jindal and Jaypee Group chief Manoj Gaur. The companies didn’t disclose the deal size and the financing plan. Sources said the deal was estimated at about Rs 12,000 crore, the sum Reliance Power had offered for the three plants two months ago.
