Akrimota Power Project Akrimota Power Project Akrimota Power Project
GMDC has 2 X 125 MW Thermal Power Project at village Nani Chher, Taluka Lakhapat, Dist. Kutch in Gujarat State. Both the units have been in commercial operation since March, 2005. It is getting Lignite from its own mines located at Panandhro, Mata-no-Madh and Umarsar. The water requirement for the power plant is taken from the nearest Kori Creek through a 1.4 KM long sea water intake channel. The CFBC boiler is used here as it is environment friendly and controls sulphur in the flue gas emission. A 100 metre thick green belt surrounds the entire site. The state-of-the-art technology DDCS has been used here.

2. GMDC makes a foray in to Wind Farm Generation
Akrimota Power Project
The State is blessed with long coastline and good wind speeds for harnessing of the Wind Energy. So the Government is committed to have investment in Clean and Green Energy to reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions.

As a commitment towards environment care and to have green foot prints, GMDC ventured into harnessing the wind energy and commissioned 200.9 MW wind turbines in Kutch, Porbandar, Devbhoomi Dwarka, Jamnagar, Rajkot and Bhavnagar upto 2016.
