About Organization

Guru Gobind Singh Super Thermal Power Plant is situated near village Ghanauli on Chandigarh-Manali highway. It is about 12 km from Roopnagar and 55 km from Chandigarh.The power plant is one of the coal based power plants of PSPCL.The plant before 01.01.2019 has   an installed capacity of 1260 MW i.e. six units of 210 MW, however wef 01.01.2018 Units 1 & 2 of GGSSTP, Rupnagar have retired , as such the present installed capacity of GGSSTP, Rupnagar is 840 MW i.e  4 Units of 210 MW .

The plant has its source of water supply from Nangal Hydel Channel. The coal used mainly comes from mines in Bihar, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh from more than 50 sources called collieries. It has 210 MW, 3 cylinder mixed flow tandem coupled, 3000 rpm BHEL make turbines. It has 247 MVA, 15.75 kV, 9050 A at 0.85 lag, 50 Hz, 3 phase, double star two pole generators.
