Located in Basin Bridge, Chennai, Tamil Nadu is GMR’s 200 MW LSHS based power plant and is proud to be the state’s first independent power producer. The power off-take arrangement with TNEB expired in 2015, the division is exploring other commercial options for GPCL.
A unique feature of the Chennai plant is that the plant treats over 7200 cubic metres of raw sewage per day from the Chennai Metropolitan & Sewerage Board and produces around 5400 cubic metres of clean water. The plant runs entirely on this water produced and hence is no burden on the water starved city.
Further the water released from the plant is clean and hence is in no way an environmental hazard. For this path breaking initiative the plant received the prestigious Dr. M. S. Swaminathan Award for Environmental Protection.
Incorporation of Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology for the final stage of purification to neutralize harmful pollutants.
ISO 9001, SA 8000, ISO 50001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications from Det Norske Veritas (DNV) for its EHS initiatives.
