Ispat to set up 2 MT cement plant in Madhya Pradesh for Rs 700 crore


Quote:
Leading steel producer Ispat Industries will set up a 2 million tonne cement plant in Madhya Pradesh with an investment of about Rs 700 crore, a company official said.

A memorandum of understanding for the proposed plant in Panna district of the State was signed today between Ispat Industries, and Trade and Investment Facilitation Corporation Ltd, he added.

Pramod and Vinod Mittal-promoted Ispat Industries has already announced to set up a 1 million tonne capacity coke oven battery in the State besides a coal washery of similar capacity and a power plant of 30 MW.

The Coal Ministry had recently approved allocation of Behrabandh coking coal block in Madhya Pradesh to Ispat Industries on a sharing basis with Essar, Mukund Steel and Ind Synergy.

In addition to its investment plans in Madhya Pradesh, the steel major intends to invest about Rs 7,000 crore in Jharkhand for setting up a 2.8 million tonne integrated steel plant.

The Government is understood to have approved allocation of Latua iron ore mines in Chaibasa district of Jharkhand to Ispat Industries.

The steel major plans to scale up the production capacity of the proposed Jharkhand plant to 5 million tonnes, for which it would require a total of 250 million tonnes of iron ore for a span of 30 years.

Green energy to silence deadly guns of Chambal


Quote:
MOVE over dacoits and bandits. The rugged Chambal Valley in Madhya Pradesh is being seen as a future energy hub. If the Madhya Pradesh government’s plan to lease out wasteland to corporate India for cultivation of jatropha gets a positive response, Chambal is all set to turn into an alternative energy hotspot.
With the Madhya Pradesh government getting its act together to weed out criminals in the area and killing over 50 dacoits, including dreaded gangster Jagjivan Parihar in the last one year, many private companies have now shown an interest in the cultivation of jatropha, a bio-diesel plant, in the Chambal Valley.
On the dacoit menace in the area, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan stressed that Chambal would no longer be known for bandits and criminal activities. “Most of the infamous dacoits of the area have been eliminated. It’s time to convert Chambal into a future energy hub. I am glad that several private companies have shown interest in developing the area and cultivating jatropha under our wasteland development policy,” he said.
RPS Rathore, director, Annapurna ITM bio-energy has proposed an investment of Rs 450 crore in jatropha cultivation and production of bio-diesel in the Chambal area. The company has recently signed an MoU with the state government for this purpose. “We would like to convert Chambal into a hub of renewable energy. The state government will first lease out 2,000 hectares of land, but we will need 25,000 hectares later. Our idea is to create facilities in Chambal for the production of solar and wind energy, and cultivation of jatropha plants for bio-fuels,” Mr Rathore said.
With the global energy crisis looming large, private companies in India have spotted future potential in cultivating jatropha and producing alternative energy. The oil from jatropha curcas seeds is widely used for making bio-diesel fuel in many countries, including India, Philippines, Mali etc. Seed yields under cultivation may range from 1,500 to 2,000 kg per hectare, which may translate into oil yields of 540 to 680 litres per hectare.
In fact, the companies which have also shown interest in jatropha cultivation in the wastelands of Madhya Pradesh, including Chambal, are K S Oils, Ruchi group and Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) to name a few. Madhya Pradesh makes a headstart
THOUGH several states in India may also invite private companies for cultivation of jatropha, Madhya Pradesh has made a headstart. Madhya Pradesh State Agro Industries Development Corporation has been given a mandate to short-list companies willing to invest in bio-fuel plants in the state.
Vini Badjatiya, MD, Hindustan Infratech, said that his company was more than willing to cultivate jatropha in the Chambal area. “We have applied for 5,000 hectares of wasteland leased from the state government. We may initially be given 2,000 hectares. Villagers in Chambal area have been willing to cooperate with us as we will bring in employment and development to the area,” he said.
Significantly, Chambal division, which is an administrative unit of MP comprising three districts of Morena, Bhind and Sheopur, has always been the hideout of dacoits. Phoolan Devi, the most prominent bandit who was a terror in the region and in parts of Uttar Pradesh too, later turned politician and won the Lok Sabha elections on a Samajwadi Party ticket. Mohur Singh was another dacoit who surrendered and later joined local politics. Two years ago, police killed dreaded dacoit Nirbhay Gujjar, who had committed 239 serious offences including murder, kidnapping, extortion and armed robbery. “However, people no longer fear Chambal Valley. There is no dacoit there. Once companies begin jatropha cultivation, villagers too will cooperate as they will get employment,” Mr Chauhan summed up.

cross posting from the energy thread


Power generation in MP increases by over 3,000 MW in 5 yrs


Quote:
Power generation in Madhya Pradesh has increased by 3,147 MW to 6,138 mw, as compared to merely 2991 MW in 2002-03.

"The power generation has now increased to 6138 MW, registering an increase of 3147 MWs in less than five years", an official release said. Newly commissioned 50 MW unit of Birsinghpur thermal power plant and 210 MW Amarkantak unit have also led to rise in power generation.

During last four years, the state government spent Rs 2,166 crore on purchasing 5,561 million units of power.
During the last three years, round the clock power supply to industries was ensured, it said.

The department has attributed present shortage of power to truant monsoon and global warming. Due to paucity of rains, most of the water reservoirs in the state do not have adequate water and thus power generation work has been affected.

The water level of Indira Sagar stands 11.5 metre below the last year's level. This shortfall is 25 feet in Gandhi Sagar and 9.3 metre in Pench Project.

Another factor of short supply is closure of Central government's power plants Vindhyachal (500 mw), Korba (500 mw) and 210 mw Sanjay Gandhi unit of the state government due to annual maintenance work.

Power is being supplied for 22.30 hours at divisional headquarters, 20 hours at district headquarters, 16 to 17 hours at Tehsil headquarters and 12 to 14 hours in the rural areas, the release added.

MP to tie up with Gwalior firm for SEZ

Quote:
After a long wait of two years, the MP government has decided to join hands with Gwalior Agriculture Company Ltd (GACL), a subsidiary of Gwalior Sugar Company Ltd (GSCL), a Dabra-based firm (Dabra is 42 km south of Gwalior), which has proposed a special project comprising a special economic zone. The company may also join hands with the Airports Authority of India.

The project will be completed with an investment of Rs 20,000 crore. The project will be completed in four phases.

The first phase will create an aviation facility, the second will have an air-cargo and logistics hub, the third will develop an industrial or agro-processing park, while the fourth phase will create a township, medical tourism, a biotech university and a leisure destination.

“The state government has joined hands with the company as an equity partner against a land area, which has been impounded under the Ceiling Act and a case is pending in this regard at the High Court,” said Kailash Vijayavergiya, government spokesperson and cabinet rank minister, adding, “the project will provide jobs to thousands of people”.

The Project Clearance and Implementation Board (PCIB) had given in-principle clearance to the project. This project also involves foreign direct investment of Rs 6,000 crore.

But a government source told Business Standard, “This way the company will be able to save its land, which it has lost under the Ceiling Act.”

The company has proposed to join hands with Singapore-based consultant Jurang International, a Singapore airport consortium.

The project will be a single real estate project offering employment to 60,000 people, while planning a township for 200,000 people.

Earlier a proposal submitted to the PCIB claimed to have 3,800 acres for the SEZ and the aviation and cargo hub, 770 acres of urban land for township development, and 4,000 acres for agriculture development.

“The company had asked for state government support for 10,000 acres to complete the project. The project will take at least five years to complete,” the minister said.

The company has sufficient water and power, with a 60 Mw Manikhera dam to start production soon and another 17 Mw power project has been proposed on a co-generation basis from bagasse and agro waste.

According to company documents, the aviation facility will have an aviation maintenance centre for India and South East Asia, a landing, parking and maintenance facility for super liners like AB-380s and Boeing 787s, parking bays for 90 aircraft, a training centre for pilots, cabin crew, simulating facility, flight catering.
Same SEZ, slightly different details...

Madhya Pradesh plans $5bn Aviation City

Quote:
BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh is planning India's first aircraft repair and maintenance facility and cargo hub - an aviation city - to be set up at a co
st of Rs.200 bn ($5 bn).

"At present the nearest such facility is in Singapore," state minister and government spokesperson Kailash Vijayvargiya told reporters Tuesday.

The facility will be located at Dabra in Gwalior district, the minister said, adding: "A cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh decided that the state government will provide 7,000 acres of land for the aviation city."

"The major portion of the land for the project belongs to Dabra Sugar Mill and the rest will be provided by the government. It will also have a cargo hub," Vijayvargiya said.

"It will be the country's first aviation city and will have facilities for repair and maintenance of aircraft.

"At present there is no such facility in India and airlines have to go to Singapore for such work as it is the nearest city where such facilities are available," he said.

"A joint venture with the Singapore-based company that runs the Singapore facility is being planned," he said without naming the other Indian companies will participate in the proposed joint venture.

Vijayvargiya also said that the city is expected to come up in the next five years at an investment of Rs.200 bn ($5 bn) and would initially provide jobs to 25,000 people which will go up to 100,000 later.

New Delhi, Nov. 19 Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) announced on Wednesday that it plans to spend Rs 7,031 crore to build the transmission system associated with the 4,000-MW Sasan Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) in Madhya Pradesh.

The investment in the Sasan UMPP transmission project is part of the Rs 55,000 crore that the State-owned transmission major plans to spend over the next five years to increase inter-regional transmission capacity from 17,000 MW at present to 37,000 MW.

The Sasan transmission project has a commissioning schedule of 48 months from the date of investment approval, and revenues from the project are likely to flow in following the proposed commissioning of the Sasan power station by around the end of the Eleventh Plan period.

MP gets ADB aid to promote energy efficiency

The Asian Development Bank will provide technical assistance of $1.7 million to Madhya Pradesh for setting up an Energy Conservation Fund to raise finances for energy-efficiency projects. The state government, on its part, will contribute an equivalent of $0.4 million. ADB's assistance will support the financing of initial operational expenditure. Madhya Pradesh becomes the first Indian state where the Energy Conservation Fund would be implemented, Neside Tas-Anvaripour, Principal Energy Specialist, for ADB's South Asia Department, told Projectmonitor in an emailed response.

The proposed ECF will complement the ongoing Madhya Pradesh Power Sector Investment Programme, she explained, also saying that the decision of extending ECF to other states will be taken in due course. Consultants for ECF were appointed in June this year, she noted. The existing MPPSIP focuses on reducing the gap between supply and demand, and improving efficiency in transmission and distribution.

The ECF will have a state-wide reach (not only rural areas) and will address projects that bring about energy efficiency, Anvaripour remarked. The technical assistance will also include outreach and awareness programs to create an environment conducive to the ECF and establish credence among the diverse group of stakeholders whose involvement in energy efficiency is crucial to the success of the ECF.

The potential for energy savings in India is enormous, as energy efficiency projects alone could create nearly 25,000 mw of capacity, and energy conservation projects could save 23 per cent of total generation. Energy savings is very pertinent to India in its effort to bring power to all by 2012.

"With proper policies, awareness and training, energy conservation and efficiency could ensure better supply of energy to needy customers and reduce the burden on power sector companies during peak supply hours," Anvaripour concluded.

Modernisation of Bhopal, Indore airports on fast track

19/2/2009

The ongoing modernisation process of Bhopal and Indore airports is on fast track now, as the various crucial infrastructure projects at both the airports would officially commence on Friday. International flights are likely to commence from Bhopal within one year.

Union Minister for Civil Aviation Praful Patel is specially coming to Madhya Pradesh to lay the foundation for infrastructural projects. With the commencement of these projects, the State will inch closer to international air connectivity.

An important phase in the already underway process of upgrading Raja Bhoj Airport at par with international standards with the foundation laying of the state of the art ''Integrated Terminal Building'' on Friday. The modern complex with all the facilities available in other international airports is likely to be completed by the end of 2009. The swanky complex is likely to cost around Rs 126 crore.

Bhopal Airport director JP Alex informed that the proposed Integrated Terminal Building would be completed by the end of the current year. He added that the runway expansion was going on smoothly and almost 60 per cent expansion work was already complete. He also added that other infrastructure development projects at the airport were also going on speedily. Bhopal is being upgraded at par with international standards a cost of Rs 350 crore and with a total area of 386 acres.

A similar complex is also proposed at the Indore airport, which would be built at a cost of Rs 115 crore and in an area of 1,800 square metres. "The new terminal building is likely to be completed by December 2009," said Indore Airport director RK Singh. He added that runway expansion to make it 9,000 feet long and other basic facilities were likely to be completed by June 2010. With the completion of the proposed hanger at the airport, space for parking 10 planes would be made available.

The proposed terminal at Bhopal will be fully air-conditioned and will be equipped with escalators and modern lifts. A modern shopping complex would be developed inside the terminal building. Besides, aero-bridge and control tower would also be the part of this complex.

The integrated terminals at both Bhopal and Indore would have sufficient space for sitting space for around 700 passengers. This includes 200 passengers from international flights and 500 passengers of domestic flights.

The proposed terminal at Bhopal would also enhance the existing parking facilities at the airport. Only four planes are parked with the existing facilities and the proposed complex would have the parking space for 13 planes. It will also have enough parking space for around 500 four-wheelers.

Meanwhile, the runway expansion is already on at Raja Bhoj airport. The expansion is being carried out in two phases and it would acquire the length of 11,500 feet as per international norms. As much as 60 per cent of the work in runway expansion has been done and the expansion is likely to be completed by March 2010. With the completion of runway expansion, Bhopal airport would be ready for receiving international flights.

Other facilities proposed at the Bhopal airport include Approach Lighting System, Cargo Hub and a four-lane approach road to the terminal building. These facilities are likely to be started in the near future.

Union Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel would lay the foundation for various projects in Indore at 11 am and later in the day he would reach Bhopal airport.
