A state endowed with minerals and materials essential for industrial growth, Gujarat has been at the forefront of industrial development and excellence. For the past five decades GMDC has been energizing much of that progress.
We’re also committed to fueling a sustainable future by expanding our portfolio into the Thermal, Wind and Solar sectors. The Lignite sourced from our own mines contribute to a sizeable generation of thermal power in the state.
GMDC’s 2X125 MW thermal power project at Nani Chher in Lakhpat Taluka, Kutch, is an important component of its initiatives at forward integration. Operational since March 2006, it obtains Lignite from its own mines located at Panandhro, Mata no Madh and Umarsar. State-of-the-art DCS technology is being used here.
