NTPC projects worth Rs 30,023 Crore

Mumbai, 4th March 2024: Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation and lay the foundation of a series of NTPC projects on 4th March 2024, signaling a significant leap towards sustainable development and economic growth.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister will dedicate Unit #2 (800 MW) of NTPC’s Telangana Super Thermal Power Project (Stage-I), located in the Peddapalli district of Telangana. With an investment of Rs 8,007 Crore, this project utilizes Ultra-Supercritical Technology, ensuring optimal power generation efficiency while significantly reducing CO2 emissions. The commissioning of this project will not only enhance the power supply in Telangana but also guarantee 24×7 availability of affordable, high-quality power nationwide.

Furthermore, Hon’ble PM will also dedicate Unit-2 (660 MW) of North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project (3×600 MW), situated in Jharkhand. With an investment of Rs 4,609 Crore, the project proudly stands as India’s first Supercritical Thermal Power Project equipped with Air Cooled Condenser technology, substantially minimizing water consumption.

On this occasion, the Hon’ble PM will lay the foundation of the Singrauli Super Thermal Power Project, Stage-III (2X800 MW). Developed in Sonebhadra, UP with a total investment of Rs 17,000 Crore, the project will highlight India’s strides towards environmental sustainability and technological innovation.

Additionally, Hon’ble PM will dedicate a fly ash-based Weight Aggregate Plant established at Sipat Super Thermal Power Station in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh with an investment of Rs 51 Crore. Using pelletizing and sintering technology, the plant mixes fly ash with coal and additives to produce aggregates, thus promoting bulk fly ash utilization, conserving natural resources, and protecting the environment.

Hon’ble Prime Minister will also dedicate the STP Water to the Green Hydrogen Plant established at NTPC NETRA Campus, Greater Noida with an investment of Rs 10 Crore. Green Hydrogen produced from STP water will help in lowering power consumption.

Further, the Hon’ble Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of Flue gas CO2 to 4G Ethanol Plant located at Lara Super Thermal Power Station in Chhattisgarh. With an investment of Rs 294 Crore, this innovative plant will draw CO2 from waste flue gas to synthesize 4G-Ethanol, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and advancing towards Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

The Foundation Stone of Sea Water to Green Hydrogen Plant will also be laid by the Hon’ble Prime Minister. Situated in NTPC Simhadri with an investment of Rs 30 Crore, the project aims to produce Green Hydrogen from seawater, thereby saving energy in the process.

Hon’ble Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of the Fly Ash Based FALG Aggregate Plant established at Korba Super Thermal Power Station, Chhattisgarh. With an investment of Rs 22 Crore, the project will demonstrate the conversion of Fly Ash into value-added ‘Building Material – coarse aggregates, thus strengthening the commitment towards environment protection.

These NTPC projects will not only harness India’s power infrastructure but will also contribute significantly to job creation, community development, and environmental conservation. With a total investment of Rs 30,023 Crore, these projects will symbolize a significant milestone in India’s journey towards a greener and more sustainable future.
