Transformer bursts in NTTP
Vijayawada, Oct 5 (INN): Power generation at the 7th unit of the Narla Tatarao Thermal Power station was affected on Tuesday after an 'explosion' in a transformer there. According to sources, the transformer 'explosion' has completely halted the operations in the unit which generates 500 MW power.
