Coal India’s supplies to Power Sector scale up 14% amid rising demand

Coal India in a filing to BSE announced that the company has raised its supplies to thermal power stations by 14.2% during the first half of April this year compared to same period last April amid the spiraling power generation.

CIL’s supplies have hit 1.64 million tonnes (MTs) per day during this period against 1.43 MTs of similar period April’21. The company had accelerated its production to 26.4 MTs during the first half of April 2022 registering 27% year-on-year growth. “The company is heading for its highest April production ever,” it said.

To tide over the intense demand, CIL has made available additional 8.75 MTs of coal to State and Central Gencos for lifting through rail-cum-road mode, till 31 May. Of this, 3.25 MT is the unlifted quantity of the earlier round of RCR offer and 5.5 MTs is the new offer. However, it said, “The escalating power demand driven up by the post pandemic economic buoyancy and hotter than normal summer seem to dwarf the upsurge in supplies.”

The country’s total power generation was 9.5 percent higher, at an average of 4.53 Billion Units (BU), till 15th April over same period last year. The increase was 400 million units per day against the average generation of 4.13 BU for the comparative period.

Coal fired power generation climbed to an average of 3.5 BU per day in April 2022 fortnight, 9.4 percent more over last April’s average of 3.2 BU for same period. The uptick of 300 million units generation per day includes imported coal as well. The bulk though was fueled by CIL’s supplies.

Sequentially, the coal-based generation growth of this period is higher by 5.4% compared to the average of 3.32 BU of the whole month of March 2022.
