New Delhi, Nov 19 (UNI) Dabhol power plant, which is in Maharashtra, will shut down two of its four generating units from tomorrow for maintenance purposes.

Power Secretary Anil Razdan on Monday said the output of the Dabhol power plant was down by 300 megawatts MW after a technical snag was reported on Saturday.

The plant, which was running at a capacity of 1,200 MW, is now generating 900 MW. The capacity was to be scaled up to 1,880 MW.

According to company sources, the planned maintenance will reduce the output of the natural gas-fired plant to 300 MW, but normal generation will resume in the first week of next month.

The Dabhol power plant is run by Ratnagiri Gas and Power Pvt Ltd. In the plant, gas transmission firm GAIL and the country's largest power producer NTPC hold stakes.
