CRZ clearance deferred for new reactors at Kudankulam

ENNAKU INDA NEWS PURIYALA - CRZ Clearance vangamala ippa irukara reactor kataranga..pudusa edho sollararu indha tamil nattu virodhi..

Chennai: The Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has deferred the proposal for Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) clearance to four new nuclear reactors at Kudankulam.

Raising five pertinent points during a discussion of the proposal at its 99th meeting in April, the Expert Appraisal Committee (for CRZ, infrastructure and miscellaneous projects) has asked the project proponent to submit more authorised studies, including a risk assessment and disaster management plan, considering the recent radiation disaster in Japan.

The new proposal involves setting up of four additional reactors in the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP) as Units 3 to 6 (each of 1000 MW) similar in design and to be located adjacent to the first two units, which are to be commissioned in a few months.

The plants were constructed under an inter-governmental agreement between India and Russia.

Noting that the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) report contained data of the period prior to 2004, the committee asked for an updated report, including marine EIA.

Already, the NEERI has carried out the EIA and environment management plan (EMP) study for the expansion of the Kudankulam nuclear power complex.

As per the EIA, EMP, there should not be any national park, sanctuary, biosphere or reserve forest in the zone of 15 km. The reserve forest of Thadakamalai, Poigaimalai and Mahendragiri are within 15 to 30 km of the proposed site and the Gulf of Mannar Bio Reserve is 150 km from the site.

Rejecting the proposal for the construction of an open channel for outfall as it would have an adverse impact on marine life due to various environmental problems, the committee advised the proponent to consider a pipeline for disposal.

The committee also noted that an earlier study by Central Water and Power Research Station (CWPRS) related to 70C variation in ambient temperature, whereas the project proponent's report states that the temperature rise of the ‘reject water' was limited to 30C. This must be clarified and, if necessary, another study should be carried out by CWPRS to meet the requirements in force.

The proponent was also asked to submit a high tide line/low tide line map prepared by authorised agency in the 1: 4000 scale superimposed with the layout.

Overall, the reports submitted were not readable/legible and far below the basic requirements for consideration of CRZ clearance, the expert appraisal committee said, and deferred the proposal. It will reconsider the issue after its observations are addressed.

Capacity addition of over 3,000 MW likely this year



The Hindu A view of the Thermal Power Station-I at Neyveli. File Photo
The State, which is now suffering from an acute shortage of electricity, is likely to see capacity addition of over 3,000 megawatt (MW) during the financial year 2011-2012.

Sources in the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) say that of the expected quantum, 1,800 MW will come from the TANGEDCO's expansion projects at the North Chennai and Mettur Thermal Power Stations.

An additional unit at Mettur will provide 600 MW, which is expected to be commissioned by September. Two more units at the North Chennai TPS of 1,200 MW are likely to be ready by January-February 2012.

Besides, the Vallur thermal power project involving the NTPC and the TANGEDCO will produce 1,000 MW during October–December 2011, if the present plan gets fructified. Of this, the State's share will be 750 MW.

On Thursday, chairpersons of the NTPC and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, suppliers for the proposed Vallur plant, visited the project site and reviewed the progress.

On Monday, Union Minister of State for Power K.C. Venugopal is likely to hold discussion with the authorities.

The State may receive about 460 MW more if the Koodunkulum Atomic Power Station's first unit is commissioned in a few months.

According to the website of the Nuclear Power Corporation of India, the revised period of commissioning for the unit is June. Another unit will be ready by March 2012. The two units will provide relief to the State to the tune of 925 MW.

Also, two units of the Neyveli Thermal Station-II expansion are expected to be commissioned in a few months. An official says that the Neyveli Lignite Corporation has assured the TANGEDCO that at least one unit will be ready by the end of this month. The total capacity of the two units is 500 MW, of which the State's share is 325 MW.

If the plans of the authorities materialise, all these power projects, most of which are coal-fired thermal power ones, will ensure the addition of 3,800 MW. But, in many of the projects, the deadline has been revised several times. For instance, the first unit of Koodunkulam Station was originally to be commissioned in December 2007. In the case of Neyveli TS-II expansion, the two units were supposed to be ready in February and June 2009.

Financial condition

The sources explain that the TANGEDCO's financial health is such that it does not permit the authorities to buy high cost power to prevent load shedding in Chennai or increase its duration in other parts of the State.

The Corporation is getting only at Rs. 15 or Rs. 16 per unit, which it purchased at Rs. 8 or Rs. 9 even a year ago. During 2010-2011, it bought power on a temporary basis at about Rs. 5,865 crore, sufficient enough to fund a new thermal power project of 1,000 MW capacity. The cost of total power purchase was around Rs. 19,360 crore, which accounted for 85 per cent of the revenue through sale of power.

The Corporation requires liberal financial infusion by the State government to meet its commitment to power sellers. It is estimated that the value of deferred payment is around Rs. 5,000 crore, the sources add.

This is not new. Many Govt Depts & PSUs do not plan or think that they have to go through proper channel to get enviro clearances for their projects.

Earlier, they used to get at the last minute after the plants are built.

Now the enviro ministry is very strict. Making more money also. Govt Depts or PSUs will not pay money.

So Thongallu vudu.

L&T bags Rs 3500 cr gas-based power project

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ow/8362490.cms

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has received an order valued over Rs. 3500 Crore from PPN Power Generating Company Limited based in Chennai, a company whose main promoters are the Apollo Group, for setting up a 3 x 360 MW gas based power plant at Village Pillaiperumalnallur in Nagapattinam District of Tamil Nadu State, on EPC basis.

The three new units will come up as an expansion project in the same location where PPN Power Generating Company Limited is presently operating a 330.5 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant since the year 2001.

The EPC order was bagged by L&T under International Tariff Based Global Competitive bidding against competition from Domestic and International power plant equipment manufacturers, the company said on Monday.

L&T’s scope includes design, detailed engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the complete power plant on a turnkey basis. The plant will incorporate state-of-art Advanced class Gas turbines and High efficiency Steam turbines from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan, which will be procured by L&T.

L&T-Sargent and Lundy, a subsidiary of L&T, will carry out the plant integration and detailed engineering, using propriety technology of Sargent & Lundy LLC, USA. L&T will design and manufacture critical equipment for the plant, like Heat Recovery Steam Generator, de-aerator, condenser, cooling tower, switchgear and valves. Project Management, Construction, Installation and Commissioning will also be carried out by L&T.

This project will be executed by the Gas Based Power Projects Business Unit of L&T Power, based in Baroda. L&T’s well established strengths in design, engineering and construction, accompanied with robust quality and safety standards, and on-time delivery are vital contributors to its success in the Power Industry.

L&T is a USD 9.8 billion Technology, Engineering & Construction and Manufacturing Company with global operations.

Nice to hear. State sure of another 1080 MW capacity addition.

JJ during her visit to Delhi, must force CG to link Northern Power Grid with Southern with large enough capacity Grid, to enable State to buy cheap power from Exchange.

Centre okays Neyveli's Rs 5,000-cr TN project

The government today approved the proposal to set up Neyveli Lignite Corporation's Rs 5,907 crore lignite-based thermal power project in Tamil Nadu.

"The Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure has approved the proposal for installing 1000 MW lignite based thermal power project at Neyveli," said an official statement.

The power generated from the new project will cater to demand of the states in the southern part of the country, the statement said, adding that the project project consisted of two units of 500 MW each.

The foreign exchange component of the power plant is Rs 969.81 crore, it said.

NLC is planning to set up a 2x500 MW project in Cuddalore district of the state.

The project had also come up for discussion in the public investment board in November last year, the company had said.

NLC is operating three thermal power stations at Neyveli and one at Barsingsar in Rajasthan with a total installed capacity of 2,740 mega watts.

Earlier, the company has said it plans to set up a 4,000 MW capacity ultra mega power project at Cheyyur in Tamil Nadu's Kanchipuram district.

NLC and Tamil Nadu Electricity Board would set up a coal-based thermal power plant at Tuticorin at a cost of Rs 4,910 crore.

The plant would have two units each of 500 MW capacity and is expected to be commissioned in 2012-13.

The company shares closed at Rs 103.90 a piece, up 2.36% from the previous close on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

So, basically its 1000(neyveli)+1000(cuddalore)+4000(cheyyur)+1000(tuticorin) = 7000MW.

Looks like around 250MW new project at NLC is heading for commissioning in next month.

I wonder what would be share for TN in that!

4th day over... summa vayala vada sudurangala? by this time new gvt should have released their plan on power cut reduction, new power purchase, power plant construction and commissioning status to public as per their manifesto.

illai palaiya power cut minster mathiri ippo irukaravarum dummy piece?

You are expecting decisions in a week's time? Not going to happen. It will at least one month before any announcements will be made.

it is very difficult to bring back things to normal with regards to a power scenario.. a thermal power plant takes 3 years to build and another 2 years for approvals.. nothing can be acheived overnight by the govt.

in the present scenario Govt atleast can minimize the impact to everyone by introducing uniform power cuts across the state.. now the villages suffer most, towns next and Chennai with no power cut I believe... they can even it out to 1-2 hours..

Not many states are having a power excess scenario - it is the same in Karnataka and Blr also.. so the question is how the govt can put in policies to judiciously use the power generated across 24 hours...
