Bokaro Power Supply Company Ltd, which operates the Bokaro Steel City Thermal Power Station, is a joint venture company of Damodar Valley Corporation and Steel Authority of India SAIL, to operate and maintain the captive power and steam generation plant at SAIL’s Bokaro Steel Plant.
In 2013 the Bokaro Power Supply Company Limited (BPSCL), which supplies electricity to Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL), received an agreement from BSL management for construction of a new 500 MW power plant in the Bathua area of the district. BPSCL is a joint venture of Steel Authourity of India Limited (SAIL) and DVC.
In February 2014 it was reported that BPSCL had obtained all the necessary clearances, and the project was being expedited so that Bokaro Steel Limited can increase its production. The project has been opposed by local residents.
The Times of India reported that, The Bokaro Power Supply Company Limited (BPSCL), supplying electricity to Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL) and lighting up its township, has got back a no objection from BSL management for construction of a new 500 MW power plant in Bathua area of the district.
On Thursday, BPSCL also recorded power generation of 200 MW, which is about 30-40 MW above its usual generation in the past three years. “The generation was achieved by BPSCL when one of its VIII Boilers is under repair,” said a BPSCL official.
