NTPC to commission 660 MW unit based on ultra-supercritical technology

NTPC for the first time will commission 660 MW unit based on ultra-supercritical technology by June 2019.

The ultra-supercritical technology burns coal at a much higher efficiency. Most of the power plants are based on sub-critical technology which has 38 percent thermal efficiency, while in ultra-supercritical plant the efficiency is 44 percent.

The unit is part of the Khargone Power Plant in Madhya Pradesh, which is still under-construction. The second unit of the plant will also have the same technology.

The total plant capacity will be 1,320 MW, which will require an investment of around Rs 9,900 crore.

The beta testing of the Unit-I will be initially carried out in June 2019, with fuel oil instead of coal.

The coal for the plant will be drawn from the company’s own mine in Pakri Barwadih in Jharkhand.

It is the first of the mines which are being developed to provide low cost coal for NTPC’s power stations and will replace imported coal. The process of creating a railway siding for receiving coal at the Khargone plant is also being fast-tracked.

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) secured the turnkey order from NTPC for setting up the plant on EPC basis. The project is valued at over Rs 5,580 crore.
