GMDC has 2*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.
