Telangana govt moots thermal power project at Suryapet

A 300 MW thermal power project is proposed to be set up by Mecwel Power at Vellataru village of Chintalapalem mandal in Suryapet district, Telangana.


The project, which is conceived with two units of 150 MW each, is estimated at Rs 2,160 crore on 332 acre as per the detailed project report (DPR) which has been submitted to the state-level environment impact assessment authority, which in turn referred it to the Central government for environmental clearance (EC).

The power project will help in meeting the power demand in the state itself as the Telangana State Transmission Corporation will not be signing a power purchase agreement (PPA) for this.

The DPR envisages evacuation of power generated by the company to the Telangana Power Generation Corporation’s 220 kv substation at Pulichintala hydel dam project. The first unit will be commissioned in 27 months from the Notice to Proceed, and the second unit after an interval of three months.

The project is proposed to be executed by 12 engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts. It was planned at a time when the capacity addition assumption was based on projected growth in power demand of six percent annually till 2022 in Telangana.

The annual coal consumption for the 300 MW power station is estimated at 2.01 million tpa with purchases both from the Singareni Collieries and international traders. A dedicated rail track will be laid up to the coal handling area of the plant from Mellacheruvu railway station when the coal was brought by rail from Singareni Collieries.

The cost of power generation per kWh at the station for the first year of commercial operation worked out to Rs 4.82 per kWh. The annual fixed operation and maintenance (O&M) cost was considered at Rs 3.20 crore per MW of generation based on 2017-18 as the first year of operation and escalated at the rate of six percent per annum as per the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) norms.
