Adani Power said on Monday it shut down four of its units of 660 mw capacity, out of five units at the Tiroda plant in Maharashtra, due to acute water shortage.
“The company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Adani Power Maharashtra Ltd has shut down its 4 units of 660 mw each out of total 5 units of 660 mw each, situated at Tiroda Plant in Maharashtra due to acute water shortage,” Adani Power Ltd informed BSE on Monday.
According to a statement, Tiroda Power Plant gets water as part of a long-term arrangement from the Dhapewada Project of Vidarbha Irrigation Development Corporation.
The company said due to drought condition in Maharashtra, the water dam has dried up and is unable to supply water to the Tiroda Power Plant.
The production from these four units will resume once the water is available, it added.
