Technical fault in Palatana power affects supply to Bangladesh
The powermproject is supplying 120 MW to the neighbouring country sincemJuly 9 because of less production due to a problem in one ofmits transformers, TSECL Director (Technical) Mahendra Debbarma said.
A technical snag in the 726 MWm Palatana power project of Tripura has affected normal supply to Bangladesh for over 10 days, an official of the TripuramState Electricity Corporation Ltd (TSECL) said today mnstead of the committed 160 MW everyday, the powermproject is supplying 120 MW to the neighbouring country sincemJuly 9 because of less production due to a problem in one ofmits transformers, TSECL Director (Technical) Mahendra Debbarma said.
However, depending on generation and demand, more than 160 MW was also supplied sometimes to Bangladesh, the TSECL official said.
To another question, he said there was load shedding in various parts of state capital Agartala due to damage of a major cable by a state government department due to digging.
"The domestic consumption of power in the state is about 270-280 MW. At present there is short fall of about 60 MW due to damage of the cable. But the situation is likely to be normal by today itself," Debbarma said.
