An Indian power company works with an engineering firm to improve its coal receiving operation.Tata Power Co. Ltd. operates a 500-megawatt coal-fired power plant at the Trombay Thermal Power Station in Mumbai, India. The plant requires 6,000 tonnes of coal per day to meet the region’s energy demands. When the plant first began operation, the company used high-ash coal that was mined in India and delivered to the plant by train in box wagons.
