Guntur: Municipal administration and urban development principal secretary Y Srilakshmi has directed the district administration to ensure the completion of Jindal waste-to-energy plant at the earliest possible.
Srilakshmi expressed displeasure at the executives of Jindal firm for not meeting deadlines despite several extensions. District collector Samuel Anand Kumar and GMC commissioner C Anuradha have been directed to closely monitor the progress of the plant.
Srilakshmi inspected the under-construction waste-to-energy plant and fuel-from-garbage plants in the city on Sunday. Jindal is constructing the project that will generate about 15MW of power from 1,200 tonnes of garbage collected on a daily basis from Guntur and Vijayawada cities and Tenali, Sattenapalle and Mangalagiri towns.
The project was initiated almost five years ago at an estimated cost of Rs 300 crore.
