In October 2005, Zelan group successfully secured a combined total of RM1.5 billion dollar contract to design and build phase two of a power plant at Pathadi village in Korba district of Chhattisgarh. Hyderbad, India. This project comprises of two phases.
With this project, Zelan has become the sole engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the 2x300MW coal-fired power plant being developed by Lanco Amarkantak Power Pvt Ltd of Hyderabad.
2×300 MW Amarkantak Coal Fired Thermal Power Project implemented in two phases, each phase consisting of 1 unit of 300 MW rating.
India faces severe shortages of electricity, with base load and peak shortages estimated at approximately 9% and 12% of total demand respectively. The project will contribute to reduce this demand-supply gap, which has resulted in erratic supply of electricity with fluctuations in voltage and/or power outages. The consequences of the power shortage are far-reaching and adversely impact commerce, industry, agriculture, education, and socioeconomic development.
Being the EPC contractor, Zelan was involved in design and engineering, civil and structural construction, as well as the supply, installation and commissioning of offshore and onshore equipment and systems.
