The plant was commissioned in March 2016 and has a thermal capacity of 5 thermal megawatts.
This likely decline in thermal capacity addition is attributed to decommissioning of nearly two GW annually as the plants complete their useful life; stress in nearly 85 per cent of the private under-construction capacity given the issues with regards to availability of funds, coal, power purchase agreements and evacuation; and decline in fresh project starts across the central, state and private sectors.
The industry analysts say that even though coal supplies to thermal power plants by CIL, at 530-million tons, is about 8 percent higher than volumes supplied during 2018/19, import shipments are unlikely to rise by as much as 50 percent, factoring in rising demand for electricity and new thermal capacity expected to come on stream during the year.
Thermal capacity increased by 5.3MW to 806.9MW while solar capacity increased by 0.
Focusing on electricity, the medium-term generation capacity outlook has improved markedly due to the massive investment in thermal capacity stemming from both CPEC and non-CPEC related expansions.
The utility was forecasting an increase in peak demand that would cause equipment to exceed its thermal capacity.
The plant has a thermal capacity of c.5mwth and predominantly produces biomethane to be injected to the national gas grid.
On the power generation front, Meralco and its power generation subsidiary are eyeing several brownfield and greenfield assets - including possible buy into the 50-percent thermal capacity of the Ayala group.
Electricity import was chosen over additional generation by certain TPPs due to the flexibility of import, technical constraints, the insignificant difference in prices, and the necessity to have some thermal capacity reserved for system security.
