Arul - Malco has shut down its operations for the past more than 3 years now due to their license for mining Yercaud & Kolli Hills was not extended by environment department. Only their Captive Power Plant is operating and supplying electricity to other companies.

மேட்டூர் அணையில் 20,000 கனஅடி நீர்திறப்பு : நாள்தோறும் 86 லட்சம் யூனிட் மின் உற்பத்தி

மேட்டூர்: மேட்டூர் அணையில் இருந்து விநாடிக்கு, 20 ஆயிரம் கனஅடி நீர் பாசனத்துக்கு திறக்கப்பட்டுள்ளதால், காவிரியின் குறுக்கே கட்டியுள்ள, நீர்மின் உற்பத்தி நிலையங்கள் மூலம் தினமும், 86 லட்சம் யூனிட் மின் உற்பத்தி செய்யப்படுகிறது. மேட்டூர் அணை மின் நிலையத்தில், 50, சுரங்க மின்நிலையத்தில், 200 மெகாவாட், காவிரி குறுக்கே மேட்டூர் முதல் ஈரோடு வரை செக்கானூர், நெருஞ்சிபேட்டை, கோனேரிபட்டி, ஊராட்சிகோட்டை, அக்ரஹாரம் ஐந்து இடங்களில் உள்ள கதவணை மின் உற்பத்தி நிலையங்களில் தலா, 30 மெகாவாட் வீதம், 150 மெகாவாட் மின் உற்பத்தி செய்யலாம். மேட்டூர் அணையில் இருந்து டெல்டா பாசனத்துக்காக நேற்று முன்தினம் முதல் விநாடிக்கு, 20 ஆயிரம் கனஅடி நீர்திறக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. அதனால், அணை மற்றும் சுரங்க மின் நிலையங்களில், 200 மெகாவாட் வீதம் தினமும், 48 லட்சம் யூனிட், ஐந்து கதவணை மின் உற்பத்தி நிலையங்களிலும் மொத்தம், 150 மெகாவாட் வீதம் தினமும் 36 லட்சம் யூனிட் மின் உற்பத்தி செய்யப்படுகிறது.



இரு நாட்களாக அணை மற்றும் கதவணை மின் உற்பத்தி நிலையங்களில், 350 மெகாவாட் வீதம் நாள்தோறும், 84 லட்சம் யூனிட் மின் உற்பத்தி செய்யப்படுகிறது. விநாடிக்கு, 20 ஆயிரம் கனஅடி நீர் காவிரியில் திறந்துள்ளதால் ஐந்து கதவணை மின் உற்பத்தி நிலையங்களிலும் முழுமையான மின் உற்பத்தி நடக்கிறது. நீர்மின் உற்பத்தி மற்றும் காற்றாலை மின் உற்பத்தி கை கொடுப்பதால் தமிழகத்தில் நாள்தோறும் மூன்று மணிநேரமாக இருந்த மின்தடை, ஜூலை1 முதல் இரண்டு மணி நேரமாக குறைந்துள்ளது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது

200MW extra power is being generated from Mettur hydro power plant since the dam is opened for Delta district irrigation.

Due to this as well as wind power, power cut has be reduced to 2hrs from past 3hrs.

Yes Vijayan, still there is scope that if ores for aluminium is transported through rail to this MALCO, then they can start production since the process industry is already established here.

Hope Vedanta group will not close the production line permanently.

I think that the quality of Bauxite available in TN & Palani Hills are not very good and the total cost of production is more than the sale price.

JSW to topple SAIL as the largest domestic steel maker

NEW DELHI: JSW Steel is all set to become the country's largest steel maker , dislodging state-run SAIL, with the commissioning of 3.2 million tonnes blast furnace at its Vijayanagar plant in Karnataka by mid-July.

After the new capacity addition, JSW will be able to produce 14.3 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) steel, 0.7 million tonnes more than the Steel Authority of India (SAIL).

"An announcement of this sort is likely to be made sometime next week," a source said and added that "the Vijayanagar plant will have a total production capacity of 10.2 million tonnes, post commissioning of the fourth blast furnace."

JSW's steel producing portfolio includes 3.1 mtpa capacity of Ispat Industries also, which was acquired by the Sajjan Jindal-led firm in last December. Its Vijayanagar and Salem units are currently producing about 7.8 mtpa.

Besides SAIL and JSW, Tata Steel and Essar Steel are two other big domestic producers, having a capacity of 7 mtpa and 8 mtpa, respectively.

The source further said that JSW Group has set a target to become a global conglomerate with USD 100 billion turnover by 2020 and 40 mtpa steel producing capacity.

The Group, which marks its presence in US, Chile, Mozambique and South Africa apart from India, had posted a turnover of about USD 9 billion in 2010-11.

It is eyeing to close the current fiscal with a turn over of USD 14 billion, the source added.

Moreover, the Sajjan Jindal-led firm has also announced that it will increase the capacity of its Vijayanagar plant to 12 mtpa by 2014 from 10.2 mtpa of today and has sought government approval to expand its capacity to 16 mtpa.

The company is also hoping to secure funding for its proposed 10 mtpa steel plant in West Bengal by the end of this fiscal.

In January-March quarter, it had achieved highest ever quarterly production of crude steel of 1.647 million tonnes, while the total sales of the company during the quarter ended March 31, 2011 stood at 1.733 million tonnes.

According to the latest steel ministry data, India's steel consumption grew by 1.8 per cent in April this year to 5.03 million tonnes on increased demand from infrastructure and automotive sectors. The country had consumed 4.943 million tonnes of steel in the same month a year ago.

Shares of JSW closed today at Rs 882.30 apiece on the Bombay Stock Exchange, up 0.06 per cent from the previous close.

JSW Steel orders wire rod and bar mill component for Salem with Friedrich Kocks

Indian JSW Steel Ltd the flagship company of the JSW Group has placed an order with family owned Friedrich Kocks for the supply, installation and commissioning of a 3 roll Reducing & Sizing Block for their combined 500,000 tonne per annum wire rod and bar mill in Salem in the state of Tamil Nadu.

The new four stand Reducing & Sizing Block will be designed for the operation with newly developed heavy duty 3 roll stands using a nominal roll diameter of 300 mm. The block will be implemented in the combined wire rod and bar mill after the existing roughing and intermediate mill. The RSB operating as a finishing block will roll the finished bar sizes from 16.0mm to 60.0mm . As a pre finisher it will produce the entry cross sections for the downstream wire rod finishing block in the range of 16.9mm to 20.5mm.

The RSB allows rolling out of only one pass series from the roughing and intermediate mill and thus significantly reduces the number of required feeders. Any desired finished dimension of the complete dimensional range can be produced in any desired sequence with a minimum number of roll sets and just a few stand changes. The optimum adjustment values for motor speed, rolls and guides as well as gear steps are calculated by the bar mill configuration system BAMICON in relation to the final product.

The scope of supply includes the 3 roll Reducing & Sizing Block with automatic quick stand changing system, remotely controlled adjustment of passes and guides as well as the roll shop equipment with quick roll change and CAPAS the computer aided system for accurate adjustment of rolls and roller guides of 3 roll stands.
After the successful start up of the 370 mm RSB at Bhushan Power & Steel early this year this is already the second Reducing & Sizing Block for India.

Mettur unit is likely to be completed by November (600MW and 1400crores investment approx)

Special cell to monitor power projects

TANGEDCO looking to complete projects early

Anxious to ensure early completion of some of its major power projects, the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) has formed a special cell to monitor the execution of the projects.

One 600-megawatt (MW) unit at the Mettur Thermal Power Station, one unit of 500 MW at the proposed Vallur Thermal Power Station (being set up by the TANGEDCO and NTPC) and another unit of 600 MW at the North Chennai Thermal Power Station are the three projects that have been entrusted with the special cell, which is headed by N. Sasikumar, Official on Special Duty in the TANGEDCO.

The cell, comprising senior chief engineers and a host of other engineers involved in the implementation of the three projects, is following up with suppliers, especially Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), on the flow of materials. The strength of the cell is about 100 and each group of members is assigned responsibilities.

A senior official says that some members of the cell are stationed at manufacturing units of the BHEL to see to it that the delivery of equipment is made.

As per the present plans, the Mettur unit is likely to be completed by November; Vallur – January 2012 and North Chennai – March. On the commissioning of the three units, the State will get 1,575 MW, as its share from the Vallur unit is 375 MW.

While the authorities have completed the inter-connectivity work for the proposed Vallur Station, they will soon take up similar work for the North Chennai additional unit.

On Saturday morning (7.50 a.m.), the State's demand for power was 10,035 MW. The consumption was about 234.5 million units on Friday. On Tuesday last, an all-time high demand of 10,859 MW was recorded

The park is not well maintained and its in worse condition. Can install new fountains and extend closing hours to 7pm there by enabling to have colour night lights n colur fountain. Its just catering to villages in neighbouring and salem districts who come for temple and they pollute t river by sacrificing animals and bring in t park and cook and eat. The previous DMk regime has built lot of cement slabs and benches to help these people, they should have built a small dining hall outside the park near the temple where these could be done. Instead this gives ugly scene to the park.

There should a winch from the ghat to the upper park enabling to hav a panoramic view fo the beautiful magnificient dam and boat ride too. This would generate income and draw more tourists. The govt is not concentrating on the tourist potential. The dam should be illuminated in the night and laser light reflecting the name either Mettur Dam/ Stanley reservoir.

The entire stretch from the Muniappan temple opp to the Park to the thermal bridge(4 roads) should be beautified along the lines as similar to our marina even if not upto world standard like Thames path in LOndon. More lawns and fountains and pavements could be built along the entire river stretch.
This would enable some restaurants come up there.

The town wores a deserted look and sleepy not bustling- as lorries dont passby the town and the commercial establishments are not so busy because of neighbouring cities of Erode and Salem within 1hr drive but still the town doesnot have basic commercial establishments like a municipality would have like the similar sized towns. The road from mecheri to RS should be laid newly straight to touch the thermal thereby will reduce the distance of existing road by 5-6 kms. which is used as alternate route for thoppur-bhavani via salem/ sankari-omalur where lorries use this route to avoid tollgate n congestion. Now Mettur-mecheri road is traffic prone and have more bends and up and downs. Now the hon'ble minister of highways is MR. Edappadi Palanisamy - can take bold steps to make this a tourist spot on the map of Tn not for namesake. Also need to upgrade t road from Mettur to Edappadi as a full highway alternate to Mettur-Erode highway on the eastern stretch of the Cauvery. So new routes from Mettur can run via Edappadi enabling to bypass Salem and not always change bus at Salem instead can travel to Namakkal, Tiruchengode and Karur very quickly and provide added connectivity.

Some one should take up these issues to the minister so that atleast one or

Arul / others,

There is a separate corridor (with Road) for taking Water pipe lines from Mettur to various places like Salem etc owned by Dept of Municipal Admin or TWAD.

This is a very good idea. This will avoid the LA issues & project delays, traffic issues etc.

Pl find more details on this & post.
