The chlor-alkali plant has a power generation capacity of 30 MW to meet all its power needs, further augmented through windmills. It also generates 10 MW for meeting 100% of the PVC plant’s power requirements.
The company has acquired a caustic soda plant at Karaikal, as part of its feedstock management strategy. The capacity of this membrane cell plant has since been significantly enhanced. While the chlorine generated is entirely used for captive consumption, the caustic soda is sold in the open market. To derive further cost advantage, the company has gone in for a gas based power plant of 8 MW capacity at this location.
