“As the macro and sectoral factors improve, backed by strong legislative and policy measures - such as amendments to Electricity Act and Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code - stress in the thermal power sector will abate but it is a long road ahead!” - Sambitosh Mohapatra, Sandeep Kumar Mohanty
“The major difficulties being faced by the coal-based projects are regarding availability of coal and payment delays by the DISCOMs. Ashok Khurana, Director General, Association of Power Producers (APP)”
The main feature of the Indian project (Kudankulam) is a unique combination of active and passive safety systems that provide maximum resilience against external and internal impacts, including tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and even an aircraft crash. - Andrey Shevlyakov, CEO, Rosatom South Asia
Despite the strong rationale for reducing GHG emissions, the installation of nuclear power projects is slower than other projects. A closer look. - Ashok Upadhyay
GE Power announced that it has been awarded four orders by NTPC to supply and install Wet FGD systems for a combined value of INR 1783 crore (USD 247 million).
Union Minister of State (IC) for Power and New & Renewable Energy R K Singh has directed the concerned officials to expedite the investment approval for the Buxar Thermal Power Project at the earliest so that foundation stone laying ceremony can take place by January, 2019.
GE Power today announced that its technology has been selected by NTPC and Tata Chemicals to upgrade two coal-fired boilers in India with low...
As part of the order, GE Power will supply pressure parts equipment for the Patratu project at an order value of USD 52million and to Udangudi thermal power projects at a value of USD 20.4 million, for onshore supply.
Period: Apr-2018 Vis-A-Vis Apr-2017 and Apr-Apr-2018 Vis-A-Vis Apr-Apr-2017.
The MoU envisages transfer of Barauni Thermal Power Station (720 MW) to NTPC.
It has received an order worth ₹442 Crore from NPCIL to supply forgings for steam generators.
The order for setting up the 3x800 MW Patratu Super Thermal Power Station Expansion, Phase-I (3x 800 MW) has been placed on BHEL by Patratu Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (PVUNL - a subsidiary of NTPC Ltd. in Joint Venture with Jharkhand Bijli Vitran Nigam Limited).
India’s to make sure sustainable growth, not only economically but also from social and environmental factors dependency on thermal sector for power has been slowly decreasing considering conscious and smart & on the other hand our country’s potential for hydro-power generation is exponentially increasing, therefore, gradually shifting its base towards renewable energy generation for future plans…
Located at Barauni in Begusarai district of Bihar, Barauni Extension power project has two units (Units 8&9) of 250 MW each.
Valued at over Rs.7,300 Crore, the order for setting up the 2x660 MW Udangudi TPP has been placed on BHEL by Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited (TANGEDCO).
The sector is rightly poised to witness a strong growth subject to continued policy impetus. The tremors of the state’s unilateral action could jeopardise the bankability of projects and could risk 175GW renewable plan of the government.
The challenge for the nuclear community is to assure that nuclear power remains a viable option in meeting the energy requirements of the next century. It could be a major provider of electricity for base load as well as for urban transport in megacities. It can play a role in non-electric applications in district heating, process industries, maritime transport.
Thermal power plants are the most common sources for generation of electricity. These plants also pollute the environment mostly. They emit many harmful gases to the atmosphere apart from fly ash, which itself has many harmful health effects. The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change has notified the revised standards for coal-based Thermal Power Plants in the country, with the primary aim of minimizing pollution. - Prof Mayadhar Swain
Ind-Ra has maintained a Stable Outlook on most of its rated power sector entities for FY18, as the agency expects its rated entities will continue to manage fuel and state power utility risks due to a favourable tariff mechanism, a comfortable liquidity position and support from central and state governments… - Salil Garg
Intelligent Coal Fired Thermal Power Plants – Next generation automation to accommodate high renewable...
The requirement for making coal fired stations intelligent arises from the beed for highly efficient plant operation and asset management on one hand and wide scale penetration of renewable energy (solar photovoltaic and wind) into the grid which results in rapid cycling of the thermal plants, on the other hand. Ramping up or down of thermal plants hitherto was through manual load setting or through the free governor mode of operation. With the entrance of rapidly varying renewable generation, the need for automatic load setting on the thermal plants through intelligent features arises... - M. Siddhartha Bhatt, N. Rajkumar
