BANGALORE: Eliminators are being installed to two cooling towers of the Udupi Power Corporation Ltd power plant to prevent flyash from drifting and settling down on human settlements and habitations, Environment Minister Krishna Palemar told the Council here on Tuesday.
“The process of installing the eliminator to one of the cooling tower is almost complete. Perhaps, it would be over in about eight days after which the work on the other cooling tower will begin. We hope this will solve the problems created by flyash,” Palemar added, in response to a question posed by Pratapchandra Shetty of the Congress.
According to Palemar, only one unit of the UPCL is functioning at present and the permission for the commissioning of the second unit will be given once these safety measures (eliminators) are installed.
