Kota Super Thermal Power Plant


Kota is a rambling city that rests on the banks of the Chambal River and proudly testifies the triumphs of the gallant Rajputs. The city's architectural wonders, manifested by the majestic palaces and crenelated forts are a stunning sight to behold. The large industrial powerhouses like the Kota Super Thermal Power Plant stand tall in the city and beautifully complement the grandiose heritage edifices.

A large portion of the county's repository of power and energy belongs to the state of Rajashthan. In order to bring about changes that would escalate the prospects of growth and development in the power sector and to enforce the Power Sector Reforms, the Government of Rajasthan set up the Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd. (RVUN) in accordance with the promulgations of the Companies Act-1956.

Established on 19th July, 2000 the committee is a torchbearer of Rajashthan's power sector. Under its aegis,the Kota Super Thermal Power Station has total installed capacity of 1045 Megawatts. The Kota Super Thermal Power Station has added another feather to its already brimming cap after receiving the Union Ministry's Golden Shield award for four consecutive years spanning from 2000-2004.

Kota Super Thermal Power Station has reached such dizzying heights of success that its sixth unit was set up on 30th July, 2003. In this unit, maximum capacity on coal firing was attained in less than 10 hours and the phenomenal completion of the project in less than two years is a groundbreaking achievement for the nation. Besides the philanthropic organization also has a social conscience. The organization plants nearly 3.5 lakhs saplings every year, digs up dykes and water bodies and monitors the effusion of effluent materials and ambient air quality in order to check the pollution level.
