The Doosan Power Systems India coal-fired power stations are in Uttar Pradesh, India's major province with a population of nearly 200 million. Together they will produce 2,640MW of power, said to be enough to supply about 16 million Indian homes.

thyssenkrupp said the two 3,000 tons-per-hour handling systems included the belt conveyors, twin-wagon tipplers, screens and crushers, and bucket wheel stackers and reclaimers.

thyssenkrupp Industries India CEO Malay Das said the group had more than 40 years of experience in the delivery of coal handling plants in India.

"We are very proud to put this experience to work with DPSI for the Jawaharpur and Obra C power projects," he said.
