Kolkata:In view of the coal crisis in thermal power plants,the West Bengal government has mooted a plan to set up gas based power plants in the state in the PPP model. There is a preliminary thought for a gas-based power plant but the same is dependent on availability and price, state special power secretary M K De said. The state was trying to harness the CBM gas available in the state. On the sidelines of a seminar,Essar officials confirmed that a meeting was held by state officials on allocating gas for power plant. The state will help in allocating gas and identify land for the gas based power plant. If we are successful in securing gas at competitive price then we will invite bid from private sector.
