Essar Power

India's first independent power plant with a 515 MW combined cycle capacity, Essar power has set new standards of excellence in power generation and plant productivity.

Essar Power's 515 MW combined cycle power plant at Hazira supplies 300 MW to the Gujarat Electricity Board (GEB), while 215 MW meets the entire power requirements of Essar Steel Ltd. The plant commenced its commercial operations in 1997. The plant benefits from many strategic advantages, world-class equipment and a skilled team.

Strategic advantages
Independent international consultants have confirmed the plant's design and construction to be world class
The plant is highly efficient and flexible
Both plant availability, and the plant load factor are high
The plant has the lowest 'Manpower to Megawatt Ratio' in India.
Multi-fuel plant, capable of operating on naphtha or gas.
The equipment that has been installed at Essar's power plant comes from the world's best suppliers General Electric, Siemens, Honeywell and Hanjung, at a total capital outlay of US$500 million. The Hazira combined cycle block consists of some of the world's most renowned manufacturer of power plant equipment including General Electric, Siemens, Honeywell and Hanjung having supplied equipment to Essar's power plant. The total captive outlay on the plant is over US$ 500 million.

Skilled Team
Essar Power's lean and highly-trained technical team is one of India's best today. Unlike other power producers who employ separate operations and maintenance contractors to run their power plants, its state-of-the-art equipment is run by its own internal team. It has expertise to set up and develop any kind of power plant and the capability to act as operations and maintenance contractors for other power plants.
