2. Business Highlights by Chairman

The Chairman briefed on the Company's business and covered the

following aspects:

a) Current State of Power sector

  • Chairman stated that India's Power Sector continues to face challenges of low capacity utilization of thermal plants; above targeted Aggregate Technical & Commercial (AT&C) losses; lower tariffs as compared to its actual cost of supply; creation of huge Regulatory Assets: precarious financial condition of Discoms which has led to ever mounting dues of generating and transmission companies and bankruptcy of a large number of thermal generation assets.
  • Regulatory logjam in the sector is evident from long pendency of number of petitions / appeals, which do not reach finality, even after 6 to 7 years of legal proceedings.
  • COVID-19has further aggravated financial crisis facing Discoms as the average realization and collections have fallen drastically and worsened liquidity challenges across the power supply chain.
  • The demand for electricity, which contracted due to lockdown measures imposed to contain spread of COVID-19 pandemic, has nearly bounced back to normal levels in keeping with the resumption of economic activities since easing of lockdown in various States.

b) Current State of the Business

  • Chairman shared the update on Company's Power Generation business, which is an Essential Service to the Country.
  • Company continues to be one of India's top 3 private power generation companies with operating portfolio of around 6000 MW.

  • Sasan Power Limited, country's largest integrated power plant, with 3,960 Mega Watt generation capacity and 20 Million Metric Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) production capacity coal mine, has consistently been ranked as the best performing plant.

  • Sasan Power supplies power at a highly competitive tariff of Rs. 1.52 per unit to 7 states - Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand with 47 Crore people.
  • Reiterating Company's commitment to cleaner and greener power by reducing emissions, we have planned capex of nearly Rs.
    3,200 crore to install Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD's) in Company's coal based plants.
  • Company's renewable projects operated with ~96 percent availability.
  • During the year, 600 Mega Watt (MW) Butibori Plant remained out of operation due to operational and financial challenges resulting from protracted delays in issuance of regulatory orders and lack of fuel supply for one of the units.

c) Monetisation of Gas based Power Project

  • Development of Phase-1 (750 MW) of gas based power project near Dhaka in Bangladesh is on track. The strength underlying this project stands further enhanced with partnership with JERA, the largest Power utility in Japan.
  • Samalkot Power has signed Equipment Supply Contract in March 2020 to sell one module for development of the Phase-1 project in Bangladesh. All the equipment have been exported and nearly all the proceeds have been received which have been utilized to reduce substantial part of its debt.

  • With this, Reliance Infrastructure Limited and other promoters shareholding in the Company has gone up to 24.98% and would further increase to 38.24% post conversion of warrants.
