Energy starved India received a boost with the commissioning of NTPC Rajiv Gandhi Sipat Super Thermal Power Station (RGSSTPS) in Chhattisgarh. On 19th September 2013, Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh dedicated this project to the nation. RGSSTPS is a coal based power plant with a capacity to generate 2980 MW. The power produced will not only meet the demand of Chhattisgarh state but also adjoining states like M.P. and as far as J&K. Chhattisgarh is likely to become the electricity hub. The Government plans to invest Rs 62,000 crore in the power sector in Chhattisgarh covering generation & transmission segment. Sandeep Sharma takes a look at NTPC projects...
SUPER CRITICAL TECHNOLOGY
NTPC has made use of super critical technology in this project. Three of the five units in the Sipat power station are based on super critical technology. NTPC, BHEL and Indira Gandhi Centre for Nuclear Research are working together to develop advanced super critical technology. The Government of India is laying emphasis on the use of super critical technology with the aim to safeguard the environment and optimize the use of resources to generate power. In this regard, the power ministry has actively started bulk tendering process for setting up super critical units. As per terms and conditions of this offer, the super critical units need to be assembled in India and the qualifying companies will have to hand over the entire technology to the Indian company.
India could generate around 55,000 MW of power during the 11th five year plan. This was double the capacity achieved in the tenth plan period. In the year 2012-13, new capacity generation was 23000 MW.The Government of India plans to add over 1,18,000 MW of power generation during the 12th plan period.
NTPC has added 4, 170 MW power generation capacity including 1,000 MW through its joint venture projects. NTPC accounts for 18.4 per cent of India’s total installed capacity and power generation capacity has touched 41,187 MW. NTPC accounted for 27.4 per cent of India’s total power generation during 2012-13 underlining its consistently high operational efficiency.
HIGHLIGHTS OF NTPC IN 2012-13
• The company has awarded work contracts for 8,521 MW capacity
• Capital expenditure (CAPEX) of Rs 19,925.53 crore, 24.58% higher than the previous year.
• Average PLF of 83.08% as against all India PLF of 69.95% with six stations recording more than 90% PLF.
• Highest ever net profit after tax (PAT) of Rs. 12,619.39 crore, marking an increase by 36.81% over the previous year’s PAT.
• Restored North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project (3x660 MW) at the existing site in Jharkhand along with the coal linkage.
The 1600 MW Stage-I units of Lara thermal plant will be set up at Lara village in Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh. This project will be based on super critical technology. The foundation stone for this project was recently laid by Prime Minister of India. The plant will have ultimate installed capacity of 4000 MW.
NTPC Tamil Nadu Energy Co. Ltd. (NTECL) is a JV of NTPC Ltd and TANGEDCO has started commercial operations of its second 500 MW unit of Vallur Thermal Power Project in August 2013. The project will have an installed capacity of 1500 MW comprising three units of 500 MW each. At this point, 1000 MW is in operation at the project. The remaining unit of 500 MW is likely to become operational during the current financial year.
NTPC‘s Mouda Super Thermal Power Station is located in Maharashtra. Currently the project has 1000 MW capacity in operation and 1320 MW capacity project is under construction.
