DMRC to receive 2 MW of power from the 12 MW WtE plant in Gazipur

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has started utilising power from a 12 MW waste-to-energy project set up by East Delhi Waste Processing Company Limited (EDWPCL) in Gazipur, Uttar Pradesh. About 2 MW of power will be supplied to the DMRC through this facility, which will be used by its Vinod Nagar receiving substation. About 17.5 million units of power per year will be consumed by DMRC from this project. The total energy consumed through this arrangement may vary depending on the real-time output of the project. This project is based on a public-private partnership signed by the Delhi government, East Delhi Municipal Corporation and EDWPCL. The project can process more than 1,500 tonnes of waste in a day, in order to generate around 12 MW of green energy in an ideal scenario.
