New Delhi : Union Minister for Railways, Coal, Finance & Company Affairs, Piyush Goyal, inaugurated Neyveli Lignite Corporation India Limited (NLCIL)’s three 100 MW Solar Power Projects for commercial operation and dedicated them to the nation on June 14, 2018.

The Solar Power projects situated at Thoppalaakkarai and Sethupuram in Virudhunagar District and Sellaiya Sezhiyanallur in Tirunelveli District, Tamil Nadu, with an installed capacity of 100 MW each, were erected at a cost of Rs 1,300 crore, which includes Operation & Maintenance cost for 15 Years. The power produced from these units will be given to Tamilnadu Power Generation and Distribution Company (TANGEDCO) at a cost of Rs 4.41 per unit.

Goyal, in his inaugural address, lauded the efforts of NLCIL Management, employees and trade unions  for their efforts for the growth of organisation with a  new vision. He appealed to all employees to strive for the growth of the company with new vision to realise the New India to take care of future generations, according to a PIB release.

Goyal also appreciated the CSR initiatives of the organisation. He urged the management to co-ordinate with the Railways and to start free WiFi for students, open Jan aushadhi Kendras and make sanitary napkins available on all eight railway stations near Neyveli. He also suggested to explore the possibility that the old age home and orphanage run by the PSU should be run from a single complex so that the integrated home can enrich both the children and the elders.

A Memorandum of Understanding ( MoU) was also signed by NLCIL and Anna University in the presence of Goyal, Chairman and Managing Director and other functional Directors of NLCIL. This MoU was signed by Dr V Manoharan, General Manager/Centre for Applied Research & Development, NLCIL, Neyveli, and Dr S Ganesan, Registrar, Anna University, Chennai. The MoU would help set up a pilot project on solar drying of lignite, in order to increase its Caloric Value from 2,700 Kcal to 4,350 Kcal. The cost of the pilot project is Rs 2.69 crore.

NLCIL is a ‘Navratna’ profit making Government of India Enterprise engaged in mining of lignite and generation of power through lignite based thermal power plants. NLCIL was established by GoI in 1956 following the discovery of lignite deposits in Neyveli, Tamil Nadu.
