Odisha Power Generation Corporation (OPGC), a 51: 49 joint venture between the Odisha government and the US based AES, has expanded its equity base by Rs 485 crore with proportionate additional capital infusion by both the shareholders.

OPGC runs a 420 Mw coal based thermal power plant at Ib Valley in Jharsuguda district and is in the process of expanding the capacity by 1320 Mw (2X660 Mw). The funding of the expansion project along with development of captive coal mines is estimated to cost Rs.11,547 crore and is based on a Debt to Equity ratio of 75:25.
