    PM Modi To Dedicate MGR System At NTPC Lara

    September 14, 2023 - BW Online Bureau


      Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate the MGR (Merry-Go-Round) system connecting Talaipalli Coal Mine to NTPC Lara to the nation on 14 September 2023.

      The 65-km-long electrified MGR System will boost the generation of low-cost and reliable power from NTPC Lara, thus strengthening the energy security of the country. The MGR system built at a cost of Rs 2071 crore will be utilised for delivery of low-cost, higher-grade coal from NTPC’s Talaipalli coal mine to 1600 (2x800) MW NTPC Lara Super Thermal Power Station in Chhattisgarh.

      The coveted project will also be connected to the Howrah- Mumbai main railway line, which can be utilized for the transportation of coal to other parts of the country. Further, the existing transportation system which is delivering 20,000 tonnes of coal on a daily basis will reach up to 8 MMTPA of coal transportation at its full capacity.

      The MGR System will be a testimony to technological marvel in coal transportation from coal mines to power stations. With a 61-meter Girder Bridge over the existing railway line at Kotarlia, the newest MGR system will also have provision for crossing over of animals at several locations along the track. The MGR system also boasts more than 200 bridges and culverts on its complete stretch.
