Essar Power on Tuesday said it has resumed operations at its 500 MW gas-based plant in Hazira, Gujarat.

The plant, owned and operated by its subsidiary Bhander Power Ltd, has benefited owing to falling gas prices and rising power demand from the captive customer Essar Steel.

“We were committed to restart the operations at the earliest opportunity and we have done it now,” said Nishith Dayal, CEO of Essar Power Hazira Ltd. “We expect input cost to remain stable and help us sustain our performance.’’

The plant’s viability was impacted due to a surge in gas prices, which forced the company to suspend operations in 2014.
