According to reports, Empee Sugars has decided to sell its 10 MW biomass-based power plant in Tamil Nadu.
The plant located on a 14-acre land parcel in Pudukottai district has power purchase agreements for third party sale to industries.
According to the senior officials, the company hopes to concentrate on larger power plants it operates under the power division and there are plans for expansion in the power sector.
So, it has decided to exit the relatively small scale biomass project.
Empee Sugars operates a 50-MW coal-based unit in Tirunelveli in South Tamil Nadu, originally set up as a cogeneration unit of a sugarcane complex, and a 20-MW cogeneration plant in Nayudupet, Andhra Pradesh.
It also has a licence for another coal-based power plant in Tamil Nadu for which environment clearances are awaited, the official said.
