Mescom project to promote energy-efficient pumpsets

Quote:
Mangalore Electricity Supply Company (Mescom) has initiated a project to explore the possibility of reducing power consumption by using energy-efficient irrigation pumpsets.

Speaking to The Hindu , Managing Director of Mescom Vijay Narasimha said that the company was the first to initiate a project of such kind.

He said the objective was to replace irrigation pumpsets being used with energy-efficient ones through private participation.

Mr. Narasimha said a private company would install energy-efficient irrigation pumpsets.

The cost of the power thus saved would be considered as savings and divided by Mescom and the private company according to a pre-defined ratio.

If for instance, the new pumpsets saved 40 units of power and the cost of each unit was Rs. 5, Mescom and the private company would divide the saved cost of Rs. 200 between them depending on the sharing ratio.

To determine whether this scheme was feasible, Mescom had installed electronic meters at two feeders - Kabaka in Puttur taluk and Manai in Udupi district - to gather data. The data collected through these meters would indicate the amount of power consumption, usage patterns and other information which would enable engineers to ascertain the technical feasibility of the project, Mr. Narasimha said.

Analysis of data

Mescom proposed to analyse the data gathered over six months - data collection began last December - and then approach business firms to determine their interest.

"There were a lot of takers initially for the Bachat Lamp Yojana, but interest died out when tenders were floated," Mr. Narasimha said and added that the company would approach firms to determine their response and ascertain the pros and cons of the project.

If the companies asked for more data, then the company would continue the data collection for another six months, Mr. Narasimha said.

Installation of meters and data gathering itself would not cost much, he added.

10 firms to set up solar projects in 6 months

Quote:
Karnataka Solar Mission
BANGALORE, APRIL 20:
A total of 10 companies plan to set up solar projects in the State under the Karnataka Solar Mission over the next six months.

Of these, eight companies plan to set up solar photovoltaic projects for 60 MW, while two will set up solar thermal projects of 10 MW each.

“Most projects will come up in North Karnataka,” Mr N.S. Prasanna Kumar, Managing Director of Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd (KREDL), told Business Line. “KREDL will help in giving out government land on lease to companies that don't have their own land,” he added.

Twenty-two companies had participated in the tender for setting up 80-MW solar thermal and solar photovoltaic projects called for by KREDL, the State nodal agency for promoting renewable energy. This was as part of Karnataka Solar Mission targeting 350 MW of solar projects by 2016. “The next round of tenders will be floated soon after the financial closure for all these projects is achieved. It could be about six months from now,” Mr Kumar said.

The projects are allocated under ‘reverse bidding' process where projects will be allocated to bidders who have quoted the steepest discounts to the tariff of Rs 14.50 fixed by KREDL.

For photovoltaic plants, Helena Power Private Ltd and Jindal Aluminium Ltd have offered the highest discounts of 656 and 625 paise per unit and have been allotted 10 MW capacity each.

Sunborne Energy Services India and Atria Power Corporation will be setting up solar thermal plants, offering discounts of 41 and 3 paise per unit, respectively.

DELAY IN BIDS

The announcement of winners of the technical bids comes after a delay – almost three months after the bids for the projects closed on November 24, 2011. The delay in opening the bid documents was because the bidding process for the second batch of projects under the National Solar Mission was on.

KREDL has said that the allocations for the State policy would be made only after the National Solar Mission bids were closed. Meanwhile, following complaints by small time developers, the State Energy Department had issued a stay order on the process, which caused further delay.

Welspun, Sunborne Win Indian Solar Project Contracts

Quote:
Welspun Group, India’s largest solar photovoltaic developer, and Sunborne Energy Holdings LLC, backed by billionaire Vinod Khosla, won contracts to build sun- powered plants in the nation’s Karnataka state.
The lowest bid in the auction for 10 contracts by the Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd. came from Helena Power Pvt., which committed to sell photovoltaic-based electricity to the state-run utility at 7,940 rupees ($152) per megawatt-hour. That’s about double the wholesale price of coal- based power.
“We may tender another 120 megawatts of capacity in the next financial year,” N.S. Prasanna Kumar, managing director of state-run KREDL, said in an interview in Gandhinagar, India today.
India is using auctions to push down average solar power rates, which have fallen 38 percent since December 2010, as it seeks to avoid the surging renewable-energy subsidies seen in Europe. Global solar power prices are also plunging as equipment costs decline after the spot price of solar panels dropped 47 percent in the past year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
Global solar power prices are plunging because of declining equipment costs after the spot price of solar panels dropped in the past year as manufacturers ramped up production, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
Welspun, which is backed by Apollo Global Management LLC (APO) co-founder Leon Black, won a 7-megawatt photovoltaic project and Sunborne won a 10-megawatt solar-thermal project, which harnesses sunlight to heat liquids that produce steam for generators; photovoltaic plants use panels to turn sunlight directly into power.
Technology Splits
KREDL awarded 60 megawatts of photovoltaic capacity and 20 megawatts of solar-thermal capacity. The next auction may cover 70 megawatts of photovoltaic and 50 megawatts of solar-thermal capacity, Kumar said.
Other winners included Jindal Aluminium Ltd., Essel Infrastructure Ltd., GKC Project Ltd., United Telecoms Ltd., Sai Sudhi Energy Ltd. and Atria Power Corp., according to a list from KREDL.

Rs 4,000-cr solar park planned in Bijapur district


Business Line Small capacities: A view of solar panels at a building in Bangalore. — Photo: G.R.N. Somashekar
Quote:
BANGALORE, MAY 4:
The State Government is planning a 4,000-acre solar park in Bijapur district.

The solar park, which will come up in Mannur, will be similar to the solar farm at Charanka in Gujarat.

The Government has set a target of 18 months to complete the solar farm and will start with small capacities of 80-100 MW, and gradually increase capacity, Mr N.S. Prasanna Kumar, Managing Director of Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd (KREDL), told Business Line.

“The idea of having a solar park is to see that private players will be facilitated in implementation of projects – basic infrastructure like power evacuation support, water and roads will be provided,” Mr Kumar said.

He, however, declined to reveal the investment the Government was going to make.

PRIVATE DEVELOPERS

KREDL is the state nodal agency for promoting renewable energy in the State, and will be involved in allotting projects at the park and facilitate implementation of projects.

Most projects that will come up there would be of private developers, Mr Kumar said, adding that the park would only have solar photovoltaic projects.

KREDL recently announced the winners of the bids for the first phase of the Karnataka Solar Mission, and Mr Kumar said that some of these projects would come up in the park.

“We have also received about 500 MW worth applications to set up projects under the REC (Renewable Energy Certificates) mechanism and some of these projects will also come up in the park,” Mr Kumar added.

KREDL had called for applications under the REC scheme, where producers of renewable energy who opt out of the preferential feed-in tariff, get tradable certificates.

The certificates could be bought by specified ‘obligated entities' – who are either specified consumers or electricity distribution companies.

Under the Karnataka Renewable Energy Policy 2009-14, the State plans to add about 4,300 MW and proposes to bring in Rs 23,890 crore of investments.

B’lore firm may develop solar parks in State

Quote:
Rohith B R, Bangalore, May 5, 2012, DHNS :
Projects planned in Dharwad, Raichur, Bidar, Yadgir districts

A private company which has developed Asia’s first and the world’s largest solar park at Charanka village in Gujarat, is likely to bag the Solar Park projects in Karnataka too.

Sources told Deccan Herald that the State government had invited engineers from EI Technologies based in Bangalore, to conduct inspections at four locations in the State where solar parks could be set up.

One of the proposed locations is Mannur village in Bijapur district, where 4,000 acres have been identified to develop a solar park of 500 MW capacity, according to Energy Minister Shobha Karandlaje. Sources said other proposed locations are in Raichur and Yadgir districts.

On Friday, Karandlaje said the solar plant at Mannur would be developed with an initial capacity of 80 MW to 100 MW and would be expanded later. She said the work on the solar park would be monitored by Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited (KREDL), the nodal agency for promoting renewable energy. KREDL would also be responsible to provide basic infrastructure like power evacuation, water and roads to the developers.

EI Technologies engineer N Ranganath told Deccan Herald that he had been invited to conduct site inspections in the State to set up solar parks. He said like Gujarat, Karnataka was also a preferred State for tapping solar power in districts like Dharwad, Raichur, Bidar and Yadgir.

Ranganath said the estimated cost of developing a solar plant of 1 MW capacity was around Rs 9 crore and to develop a 80 MW plant, it would cost around Rs 720 crore. He said if the land was in possession of the government, it would not take more than six months to complete the project.

Ranganath said tapping solar energy would be inevitable in future as it had advantages when it came to total savings on the project, operation and maintenance. He said any location to develop solar park should have minimum availability of water as solar panels need periodical cleaning.

KREDL Managing Director N Prasanna Kumar said once the developer was finalised, the government would provide infrastructure and the project would begin. He said the project would be maintained by the developer for a lease agreement period of 30 years.

13 more biofuel information centres soon

Quote:
BANGALORE: “Biofuel Information Centres will be set up in all the districts in the next three months,” Chairman of the Karnataka State Biofuel Development Board (KSBDB) Y B Ramakrishna said on Saturday.

Speaking at the foundation laying ceremony of a Biofuel Research Centre in the University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS), Bangalore, on the GKVK campus, Ramakrishna said, “In addition to the existing 17 information centres, 13 more centres will be opened in the coming months. Besides providing all sorts of information on biofuels, these centres will be designed to collect different types of non-edible oil seeds, extract oil with 500-600 kg of seed crushing capacity per day and produce 100 to 150 litres of bio-diesel per day,” he added.

The bio-diesel produced will be blended with petrol and diesel and used in several vehicles belonging to board and the university and the de-oiled cake will be used/sold as organic manure, he stated.

He also appreciated the government efforts to promote biofuel.

“At present, Karnataka has the capacity to produce 135 million litres of ethanol from molasses, which will be increased to 200 million litres by this year end. Karnataka is the first state in the country to formulate a biofuel policy, create a task force and constitute a board for the promotion of biofuel,” he explained.

On the occasion, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda inaugurated a national workshop on Rural Agriculture Work Experience (RAWE) Programme and launched the biofuel park website.

The workshop was jointly organised by the UAS, Bangalore,� and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research and Biofuel Development Board. Informing about the RAWE programme, Vice-Chancellor of University of Agricultural Sciences� Dr K Narayana Gowda said, “Under the programme, the students are given rigorous orientation on various issues and problems they can expect in the farmer’s fields and provides real time opportunity for them to work on complete crop season through various extension methods.”

RAWE, which has been a part of the course offered in the 8th semester, henceforth will be offered in the 7th semester and coincide with the Kharif season and the students will be placed in the Raitha Samparka Kendras.

The duration has been extended from four weeks to 12 weeks from next batch, he explained.

The State government has come forward to extend stipend from this year to each student at `1,500 per month besides, extending other facilities for effective implementation of the programme, in addition to `750 given by the university and the ICAR.

Surana Power likely to commence Raichur project next year

Quote:
Surana Power Ltd is confident of commencing generation of electricity from its upcoming 420 MW plant by next year because the project will not face any fuel supply issues. Surana Power has a captive coal mine in hand.

The company, a wholly owned subsidiary of the NSE-listed Surana Industries Ltd, is putting up a Rs 2,400-crore project near Raichur in Karnataka. “The project is 50 per cent complete,” says Mr Dinesh Surana, Managing Director, Surana Industries. The public sector power equipment major BHEL will supply boilers and turbines for the two units of 210 MW each.

Surana Power was recently in news when the rating agency CARE assigned Surana’s Rs 1,800-crore long-term bank loans a `B' rating. “The rating is primarily constrained by poor operational performance of the existing 35 MW power plant and resultant strain on its cash flow position. The rating is also constrained by lack of experience of the group in execution of large-scale projects, presence of coal purchase agreement with a group company which is venturing into coal mining, power offtake and price risk associated with its power purchase, agreements, regulatory risk and forex risk associated with coal imports,” CARE said.

However, the rating agency also noted that the rating “derives strength” from favourable demand scenario for electricity in south India and the achievement of financial closure of the project.

Asked for a comment on this, Mr Dinesh Surana said the 35 MW plant has a fuel supply agreement with Coal India Ltd, but Coal India has not been able to supply the fuel. As a consequence, Surana Power had to buy coal from abroad, which is costly.

The 35 MW plant is meant for captive use, to supply electricity to the steel plant run by the Rs 1,223-crore Surana Industries. “We are using the plant to supply just as much electricity as we require,” Mr Surana said, adding that while the captive power plant was not running to full capacity, it was not making a loss either.

Kemar-Shantigrama line will improve Karnataka's power situation

Quote:
Situation in power-starved Karnataka is all set to improve once Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Ltd (KPTCL) completes the work of laying 179 km long 400 kv Kemar-Shantigrama line. Plagued by delays due to litigations over environmental issues, the line work, which commenced in 2009 and was scheduled for completion in 2010, will now be completed by June end. KPTCL is racing against the clock to meet the deadline.
On completion, power generated at Udupi power project in Nandikoor will be evacuated using the 400 kv line. The line will link the Udupi power project to 400/220 kv Power Grid Corporation of India's receiving station at Shantigrama in Hassan.
At present, the power generated (around 320 MW) by the Udupi Power Corporation Ltd is used to meet peak load in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts. The rest is evacuated to Shimoga using a 220 kv line. Completion of Kemar-Shantigrama line will also make Varahi hydro electric project at Hosangadi of Udupi district completely functional.

The peaking station will generate power only in about eight hours in the morning and evening every day. At present, Karnataka is not able to make full use of the 460 MW power that four units (each of 115MW capacity) of Varahi are capable of generating as the 220 kv Shimoga line is overloaded.
Vijayanarasimha, managing director, Mangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd said, "We are not able to utilize the full capacity of Varahi as Mescom is obliged to utilize power generated by UPCL. Otherwise, we will need to pay them the generation charges." Kemar-Shantigrama line would reduce the load on 220 kv Shimoga line and allow the state to tap power generated at Varahi, he added.
The first two units of Varahi generate power at 56 paise per unit and the other two at Rs 1.26.
B Govind Rao, superintending engineer (electrical), transmission (works and maintenance), Mangalore circle of KPTCL told TOI that concrete bed foundation work on all 529 pylons of Kemar-Shantigrama line had been completed.
"The work of erecting 506 power pylons has been completed and conductors have been drawn to length of 155 out of 179 kms," he said and added the new line capable of evacuating 2,000-MW power would be completed by June end.

Fresh global bids called for 1,300 Mw Gulbarga thermal power project

Quote:
The Power Company of Karnataka Ltd (PCKL), a wholly-owned company of government of Karnataka and the authorised representative of the five electricity supply companies (Escoms) in Karnataka, which has failed to secure coal linkage for its proposed 1,320 Mw super-critical thermal power project at Gulbarga, has invited fresh global bids for supply of power on long term basis under Case-2 Bidding Framework as per the competitive bidding guidelines.

The cost of the project is estimated at Rs 7,500 crore. The PCKL had floated bids for the Gulbarga Thermal Power Project on a build, own and operate (BOO) basis in July 2010. About 23 bidders were qualified including Ambani brothers at RFQ (request for qualification) stage.

“As per the original plan, PCKL had the responsibility to secure coal linkage for this project. However, as the government of India has not provided coal linkage to many power projects including Gulbarga project in Karnataka, the company has amended the RFQ document and enabled the private players to secure coal linkage on their own. Since, this is a major change, the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) asked us to invite fresh bids,” a top PCKL official said.

Though the opportunity is given to new players to bid for the project, all the 23 qualified bidders will have to submit fresh proposal in the formats provided in the modified RFQ documents, the official said.

Tata Power, GMR Energy Limited Jindal Power Ltd, Shree Cement Limited, IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd, Sterlite Energy Ltd, Aditya Birla Essel Mining & Industries Ltd, GVK Industries Ltd, AES (India) Private Ltd, Adani Power Ltd, Dalmia Power Ltd and Videocon among others have been qualified already.

The PCKL has asked the bidders to submit their RFQ documents by June 25, 2012, and the bids will be opened the same date, a notification issued by PCKL on Monday said.

PCKL is in possession of 1,601 acres of land in Gulbarga taluk near Firozabad, Kirangi and Nadisinnur village limits and has secured allocation for 2.06 TMC of water from Googal Barrage across Krishna River.

As per the amended RFQ documents, the successful bidders are required to obtain coal linkages of imported or domestic or blend of both.

PCKL had first floated bids in 2007 for setting up 2x660 Mw (1,320 Mw) coal-based thermal power plant at Farhatabad near Gulbarga in north Karnataka. Subsequently, 11 companies were qualified out of 14 bidders. However, after the KERC raised certain objections, the PCKL had to float fresh bids in July 2010 and another 12 companies were qualified including Mukesh Ambani-led RIL.

The project will be constructed over a period of four years from the date of signing the agreement and the entire power generated would be supplied to the state grid, PCKL official added.

This is the first project taken up by PCKL under the competitive bid route. Apart from this project, the PCKL is also in the process of developing another 1,320 Mw thermal power project in Ghataprabha taluk of Belgaum district.

PCKL is responsible for capacity addition by way of setting up of new power projects through bidding process, under Case-II bidding guidelines issued by Ministry of Power, GOI and long term procurement of power under Case-I bidding guidelines of MoP, GoI.

Quote:
Located in Karnataka state, the 56 MW Tuppadahalli wind park will produce electric power equivalent to the consumption of 35,000 Indian homes.

With 85.8 MW in operation, the company is the biggest Spanish wind power operator in the country.

ACCIONA Energy yesterday inaugurated the Tuppadahalli wind park, its third installation of this type in India and the biggest in terms of installed capacity. With a nominal capacity of 56.1 MW, every year it will produce electricity of renewable origin equivalent to the consumption of around 35,000 Indian homes.

The inauguration ceremony for Tuppadahalli was attended by ACCIONA Vice-president Juan Ignacio Entrecanales, ACCIONA Energy President Carmen Becerril and the Managing Director of Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd., Prasanna Kumar. The three wind farms the company owns in India are located in the state of Karnataka, with a total installed capacity of 85.8 MW.

The Tuppadahalli wind park has thirty-four 1.65 MW turbines which, through wind power, will avoid the emission of around 129,000 metric tons of CO2 a year to the atmosphere from conventional power plants in the state. The electricity generated is purchased by the state-owned distribution company MESCOM.

All ACCIONA's wind parks in India are wholly owned by the company. The new facility joins the wind parks of Arasinagundi (13.2 MW), installed in 2007, and Anabaru (16.5 MW), which entered service in 2008.

ACCIONA has a number of projects at an advanced stage of development, with the aim of consolidating its position as the leading Spanish wind power operator in India.

Optimized production
ACCIONA's wind parks in India have achieved a high load factor which optimizes the generation of energy and the profitability obtained from production.

ACCIONA has included its three operational wind parks in India under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) envisaged in the Kyoto Protocol against Climate Change, which guarantees the economic viability of projects through the trading of emission rights derived from renewable generation.

India is currently the fifth biggest wind power market in the world, with an accumulated capacity of 16,084 MW at the end of 2011. It offers great prospects for the future and is expected to reach 35,000 MW in 2015, according to BTM Consult. The Indian Government has set an objective of 82,000 MW from wind power by 2022 within the framework of its policy to promote renewables in the country.

NTPC begins work on power project in Karnataka

Quote:
Bangalore: State-run National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ltd Saturday commenced work on the first phase of the 4,000 megawatt super thermal power plant in Karnataka's Bijapur district.

Union Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde Saturday laid the foundation stone for the first phase of the Rs.15,166-crore ($2.7 billion) project at Kudgi, about 550 km from here. The project that will come up on a 3000 acre area comprises three units of 800 mw each.

Union Corporate Affairs Minister M. Veerappa Moily, Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda and a host of dignitaries were also present on the occasion on a hot summer day.

The NTPC will take up the remaining two units in the second phase after commissioning the first unit by 2016.

"The NTPC's first super thermal project in Karnataka is aimed at meeting the growing energy demand in the four southern states proportionately. This is among the nine mega power projects the central government had taken up for executing in the 11th and 12th five-year plan periods," Shinde said after the ground-breaking ceremony.

Being the host state, Karnataka will get 50 percent of the power generated at the plant with the balance 50 percent distributed among Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

NTPC has floated global tenders to procure machinery for the nine projects, attracting bids from British, French, Korean and Japanese firms, which plan to set up manufactures basis in India to reduce the machinery cost.

"The projects will create thousands of direct and indirect jobs and reduce the energy deficit majority of the states face across the country due to shortage from other sources and increasing demand by a growing economy," Shinde said in his address.

Union Power secretary P. Umashankar said about 76,000 mw would be added and 100,000 km of new transmission lines would be laid during the next three years to carry the power generated by the state-run plants on the national grid.

"When commissioned, the Kudgi thermal power plant will add 7,400 mw of power to the state grid, which already carries about 5,000 mw of power from the state-run Raichur and Bellary thermal plants in the northern districts of the state," Umashankar said.

NTPC chairman and managing director Arup Roy Choudhury said the first phase of the project would require 13 million tonnes of coal per annum and 162 cusecs of water.

"The coal will be brought to the plant site by rail-road, as the village (Kudgi), 5km from the project site, has a rail link and water will be sourced from the Almatti reservoir across the downstream of the Krishna river," Choudhury pointed out.

The Union Ministry of Environment and Forests gave environmental clearance for the first phase of the project in January.

The NTPC will use super critical boilers and latest equipment from Doosan of Korea and Toshibha of Japan, which have agreed to set up their manufacturing plants in the country to produce the machinery.

Mini-hydro project pollutes surroundings

Quote:
Uppinangady, June 3, 2012, DHNS:

Uppinangady Raitha Sangha members submitted a complaint to Deputy Commissioner Dr N S Chennappa Gowda that to facilitate the work on mini hydro electricity project, at Adekal, a road has been laid by dumping mud into Kumaradhara river.

The dumping of the mud into the river will create artificial flood during monsoon at 34-Nekkiladi village. It will also affect the easy flow of water in the river, they stated.

The office-bearers met the DC during his visit to Uppinangady. “In the name of constructing a dam, mud has been dumped into the river for about one kilometre stretch. With the dumping of the mud, the water which is being supplied to Puttur is getting polluted,” they alleged.

“With the mini hydro electricity project, acres of farm land is likely to be submerged. However, the company has paid compensation only to few farmers and have cheated over 100 farmers.

The DC should intervene and provide justice to the farmers.”

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Deputy Commissioner said that three mini hydro electricity projects have been sanctioned across Kumaradhara river. A meeting of all the dam owners will be convened on June 15.

“We will ensure that no injustice is meted out to the farmers. I have asked Tahsildar to furnish details on the land required for the project,” he said.
