IB Thermal, 28.07.2021:As a leap forward in realizing the goal of independent coal supply, LOCO Engine rolling was carried out today on the newly constructed MGR railway track, which connects OPGCs IB Thermal Power Station to OCPLs coal mines at Manoharpur in Sundargarh district. As scheduled, this follows the successful trolley movement for inspection of the track from Suka Patnaik Chowk to Manoharpur, which was carried out on 28.06.2021. This success has paved the way for the long awaited rake movement from OCPLs coal mines to power generating units of OPGC. Rolling of LOCO Engine began from IB Thermal at 08.30am with a customary puja performed by Director (Operations) Mr. Manas Ranjan Rout, Head (Projects) Mr. Saroj Kumar Sahu, Plant Manager-OPGC-II Mr. Sukanta Mohapatra in presence of Head MGR (Projects) Mr. P.
