NAVRATNA CPSE National Aluminium Company Limited is faced with coal shortage leading to closure of three units of the company's Captive Power Plant (CPP) and curtailment of production. While the aluminium major required at least 17,500 MT of coal everyday, it is getting only 13,000 MT from Bharatpur mines of Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd. The company had to close down three units of its captive power plant, a Nalco official said adding that each of the units had a production capacity of 120 MW.
