NLC India Ltd (NLCIL) has commissioned a Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Station (CAAQMS) at the Thermal Power Station II Expansion.

The facility was inaugurated by NLCIL Chairman-cum-Managing Director Prasanna Kumar Motupalli recently, and will determine the status and trends of ambient air quality, and ascertain whether the prescribed ambient air quality standards are violated.

According to a press release, Mr. Motupalli underscored the need for proper implementation of safety and environment systems in NLCIL and said all thermal power stations and mines have initiated steps to install CAAQMS.

NLCIL has generated 30 billion units of power during the 2022-23 fiscal, and the Central public sector enterprise would soon be adding a 300 MW solar-based power plant at Barsingar in Rajasthan in the current fiscal.

NLCIL Directors Kalasani Mohan Reddy, Suresh Chandra Suman and Samir Swarup were present.
