In March 1994, the the commissioning of the first unit of Talcher Super Thermal Power Project got underway. Commissioning of power plants is rather a complex, and lengthy procedure. But this story belongs to the beginning of this complex process, where the water system of the plant gets ready leading to hydro test of the boiler. The technical name of the water system is "de-mineralization system" or DM system in short. DM plant is that building of a power plant where water from local source is purified so that it becomes suitable for use in the boiler.
