People who protest against nuclear power plants are not worried about problems faced by people who live near coal mines. But as it will take decades to get benefits from thorium economy, we should not ignore wave and forms of energy. Power deficit states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu are not giving importance to wave energy eventhough Kerala is generating small quantity of power from wave power plants for decades. If power surplus states like Gujarat can give importance to wave power projects then why can't other states do the same? I think if we construct wave power plants properly then they can act as sea walls.

There was a prototype wave energy project set up at Vizhinjam in Kerala. Dunno whether it is still functioning now. But, wave energy is still very much in its infancy. I think there is only 1 functioning major wave energy project in the world at Portugal. That too less than 5 MW, I think.

Gujarat is planning for Tidal energy and not wave energy. And the reason is very simple. The geography of Gujarat allows it to do so. It has 2 gulfs, Kutch and Khambat which are uniquely shaped in the form of narrow inlets and this allows the tidal action to be much more pronounced and streamlined. So, tidal energy can be efficiently utilized. Gulf of Khambat sees the highest tidal action in India.

This is the reason why major tidal projects are located at such inlet type Gulfs or mouths of rivers which form estuaries(not deltas) so that this pronounced tidal action can be efficiently captured in the narrow openings.

Tidal power in TN is currently not economically and ecologically feasible at this point of time IMO. The South TN coast falls under Gulf of Mannar Biosphere reserve which is extremely rich is biodiversity and ecologically very sensitive. Tidal energy projects are found to have some destructive ecological effects and thus would not be advisable to be set up at Gulf of Mannar regions. The North TN region is not well known for high and streamlined tidal action.

So, I feel, it is better for TN to concentrate on Wind and solar at the moment which is comparatively well developed in technology and scale and which is still, yet to be tapped resource. TN South coast has an excellent geographical advantage for Offshore wind power plants which the GoI and C-WET are actively looking to tap them.

So, IMO, it is wiser for us to first effectively tap comparatively mature technologies like wind and solar and concentrate on how to maximize the o/p from these resources before embarking upon wave or tidal which are either not conducive or technologically advanced.

Plans afoot to develop offshore wind energy


Quote:
The Government is gearing up to prepare a time-bound action plan for development of offshore wind energy especially in the coastal states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka.

At a meeting of the sub-committee for preparation of the draft policy guidelines for development of offshore wing energy projects of the Ministry for New and Renewable Energy, Tamil Nadu Electricity Board chairman, Rajeev Ranjan, who is also chairman of the sub-committee, said it was high time that policy guidelines are formulated to attract investment into the sector.

The policy guidelines will steer the offshore wind energy projects and be the basis of participation of the private sector,” he said.

It was felt that that since resource assessment is a time consuming affair, projects at the sites where initial assessment has already been carried out could be taken up initially. Dr. S. Gomathinayagam, executive director, C-WET, informed that a 100 m mast at Dhanushkodi was under installation. Besides, as per the preliminary assessment done by Scottish agencies, there is a potential of one GW north of Rameshwaram and another one GW south of Kanyakumari. “The policy should contain a detailed guideline on security and safety aspects of such offshore structures. Representatives from Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) could be taken on board due to strict requirements of the missile testing procedures in the region of mutual interest,” Director in Ministry of Power Manish Pathak said in the meeting.

It was also decided that C-WET would work on a detailed draft report and circulate the same in the sub-committee within a month. Coastal states have been advised to nominate a designated agency to deal with the issues relating to offshore wind energy development while a separate sub-group would be formed for operationalising clearances.

புதிய தலைமுறை செய்தியில் சொன்னார்கள் நேற்று காலை முதல் 250MW மின் உற்பத்தி தொடங்கியது இது படிப்படியாக 500MW மின் உற்பத்தியை எட்டுமாம் மேலும் சாதாரணமாக 1 யூனிட் மின்சாரத்தை உற்பத்தி செய்ய 1.2KG coal தேவைப்படுமாம் இந்த plantல் 1 யூனிட் உற்பத்தி செய்ய 600 gram coal போதுமாம். மேலும் நிலக்கரியை PLANTக்கு கொண்டு செல்லும் வேலைகள் கொஞ்சம் பாக்கி உள்ளனவாம் தற்போது 14 நாட்களுக்கு 500MW உற்பத்தி செய்ய தேவையான நிலக்கரி ரெடியாக உள்ளதாம்

Delay in Koodankulam Power may prove costly for KSEB

The delay in the commissioning of the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP) is likely to cost the KSEB dear - by as much as Rs 100 crore this financial year in power purchases, according to the power utility.

This is largely due to a mistaken calculation by the State Electricity Regulatory Commission that the KSEB would start receiving Koodankulam power during 2012-2013, the KSEB has said in a petition seeking the review of an April 2012 Commission decision chopping KSEB’s revenue gap by Rs 1,351.10 crore.

While filing its annual ARR & ERC petition, the KSEB had ignored KKNPP power since its commissioning was mired in uncertainty. But the Commission, in approving the petition with revisions, assumed that Unit I of KKNPP will be commissioned by August 2012 and Unit II by December 2012. The commission estimated that the KSEB would receive 665 million units (MU) Koodankulam power the current fiscal.

‘’However, the schedule of the commissioning of the Koodankulam plant is yet to be finalised and the synchronisation of Unit I is yet to start. Nuclear power plants usually require three to four months for declaring the commercial operation from the date of synchronisation. Hence, there is very remote chance for the commissioning of the plant, especially the second unit, during this financial year,’’ the KSEB noted.

For KSEB, the problem lies in that the Commission estimated KKNPP power to be available at Rs 3.19 per unit. But now, the KSEB will have to look at liquid power stations and power traders for meeting the KKNPP shortfall. And this power will not come cheap.

According to current data on the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) website, KKNPP Unit I will be commissioned in August this year, but Unit II will start operations only by March 2013. Kerala’s KKNPP quota is 266 megawatts (MW).

‘Review decision on revenue gap’

The KSEB has urged the Commission to have a re-look at its decision to cut the KSEB’s revenue gap for the current fiscal by Rs 1,351.10 crore. While the KSEB had projected a revenue gap of Rs 3240.25 crore, the Commission had cut it down to Rs 1889.15 crore. The Commission will hear the KSEB’s plea on August 6.

He upgraded himself to 30 days from 15 ... still chances are very less to open it on Aug 25th. Will be happy if it actually opens on that day.

New Delhi: Two days of ‘dark age’ has brought in focus the cripplingpower situation in the country.
While the government must sharea major part of the blame for having failed to ensure optimum generation of power, other factors including local opposition, and environmental and safety concerns too have played a major role in delaying projects.
For instance, NTPC’s Bijapur power project in Karnataka, with a capacity of 4000 MW, is held up due to environmental concerns. The project has yet to get a clearance from the Union Environment Ministry.
Similarly, lack of environmental clearance has held up many other projects – Essar in Madhya Pradesh (1200 MW), NHPC Dibang Valley (3000 MW), Middle Subansiri Hydel (1600 MW), Jaypee’s Lower Siang (2700 MW), Reliance Power’s Chitrangi in Madhya Pradesh (3960 MW), NPCIL’s Mithvirdi in Gujarat (6000)and Cheemeni gas-based project in Kerala (1200 MW).
The Saurashtra coal-based projectin Gujarat (1200 MW) is stalled due to forest clearance.
Safety concerns and protests haveheld up NPCIL’s Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tamil Nadu (2000 MW).
Last but not the least, Coastal Energen Tuticorin project in TamilNadu with a capacity of 1200 MW has been delayed because of non execution of power purchase agreement with TNEB.http://zeenews.india.com/news/nation...st_791023.html அம்மையார் தன்னுடைய புத்தியை COASTAL ENERGEN நிறுவனத்தின் 1200MW திட்டத்திலும் காட்டிவிட்டார். இத்திட்டம் திட்டமிட்டபடி 2013ஆம் ஆண்டு உற்பத்தியை தொடங்கவிடமால் தடுத்தால் அது ஜெயலலிதாவுக்கு வினையாகத்தான் முடியும். இவருடைய ஈகோவினால் தமிழக மக்கள் தான் அதிக பாதிப்படைவர்

Sorry to kill your excitement so soon, but the problem is for the 3rd and 4th units which are planned for the future and not for the 1st and 2nd unit which are close to commissioning!!

Quote:
The PM, who is also the Minister for Atomic Energy, is questioning the department's decision not to exercise the right to recourse - for units 3 and 4 of the project - in the event of a mishap at the plant
U always tend to miss the details when it comes 'articles' that suit ur agenda.

Yes I see that his questions are for 3 and 4, but is applicable for 1 and 2 as well. The bill holding supplier responsible was passed in 2010, and the russians asking for waiver for 3 and 4. So what is the fate of 1 and 2?

By the way what is my agenda? TN should remain without power for ever because we are not "brave" like a chennite?
