Located 20 km from Barmer, Rajasthan, JSW’s Barmer plant sources lignite from the Barmer Lignite Mining Company Limited (BLMCL). The mining company has rights to develop lignite mines in two adjacent blocks – Kapurdi and Jalipa. The Jalipa block is still under development, but the Kapurdi mine is currently supplying lignite to the Barmer plant. This coordinated strategy has been initiated by JSW Energy to become a leading, fully integrated power company.
JSW Energy has a majority holding in South African Coal Mining Holdings Limited (SACMH), a Company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and with coal mines in South Africa.
Apart from coal mines, the Company has other infrastructural assets, viz. allocation in Richard’s Bay Coal (RBCT), Wash Plant, Railway Sidings etc.
