Tata-to-develop-solar-plant-in-Satara-by-December

I have posted this in the Renewable Energy thread as well

http://www.hindustantimes.com/India-...1-1096828.aspx

Tata Power will develop one of its largest photovoltaic based solar power plants with an installed capacity of 28.8 mega watts in Satara district in Maharashtra by December 2013.

The plant will be spread over 130 acres of land. Tata Power (Distribution), which supplies power to the city, has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) for a term of twenty-five years in order to purchase power from this solar plant, thereby meeting its solar renewable purchase obligations (RPO).

The power generated will be transmitted through Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Limited's network. Anil Sardana the Managing Director of

Tata Power, said, “Tata Power strives to reduce its carbon footprint. We would like to thank the government of Maharashtra and all our stakeholders for the support extended for the setting up of this solar power project at Palaswadi in Satara.”

More-than-300-accept-nuclear-plant-compensation

Slowly and Quietly Jaitapur is sailing through . I think the Government has taken advantage of Medha Patkar's busy schedule to convince the villagers . Would love to see this project come up in Maha

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/22083952.cms

MUMBAI: Residents of Jaitapur have begun accepting compensation of Rs 22.5 lakh per acre that is being offered by Nuclear Power Corporation Limited (NPCL).

The nuclear power plant in Ratnagiri district, spread over 9,000 acres and largest in the country, will generate 10,000MW when commissioned.

Praveen Pardeshi, principal secretary (revenue and forests), said the payment process started two weeks ago and so far, 320 land owners had accepted the Rs 22.5 lakh compensation, while 500 had taken the basic amount paid as per the ready reckoner rate.

"Land acquisition has been done in six villages and payment of compensation is underway in Madban village, where maximum land has been acquired," he said. The project has affected 2,000 families.

The NPCL, which is paying the compensation, has deposited the entire amount with the Ratnagiri district collector.

Construction of roads and offices has begun on the acquired land. Until now, only a compound wall had been constructed around the land. The plant was supposed to be commissioned in 2017, but NPCL is still in the middle of negotiations with vendors for construction of the plant.

Jaitapur nuclear plant opponents say will end protests

Sharad Vyas, TNN | Aug 31, 2013

MUMBAI: The state government has achieved a vital breakthrough in the talks with organizations spearheading the opposition to the proposed nuclear power plant at Jaitapur in Ratnagiri district.

Following a series of meetings with the Janahit Seva Samiti (JSS) and other splinter groups, the two sides announced that a mutual agreement had been reached and there would not be any more protests. The JSS, one of the major groups opposing the project, had been agitating since 2004. Another agitating group, the Konkan Bachao Samiti, is now nearly dysfunctional.

Industries minister Narayan Rane held a series of meetings with the groups on Friday. "From here on there are no more hurdles left to be cleared against the project and we expect the work to start on the plant as early as possible," Rane said. "We have agreed in-principle to their demands." The JSS and its leaders Pravin Gavankar and Dr Milind Desai said the group had decided to come out of its agitation as the state had agreed to work on their demands.

A final meeting will now be held with chief minister Prithviraj Chavan within 15 days for approval. Some of the major demands of the group were removal or limiting restriction of development around the 'sterile zone' as it will prevent growth of the region, setting up of mango processing units in the 'buffer zone' to create jobs, development of health and educational facilities in the zone, inclusion of more family members in the list of beneficiaries, and withdrawal of past cases against protesters who took part in the agitation.

"The JSS approached the state government with the sense of rapprochement through the local unit of the Congress," SDO of Rajapur subdivision Praveen Khade said. "With most of the demands met, this is vital breakthrough for the state."

There have been protests in the past by the locals of villages Madban, Varliwada, Karel, Niveli and Mithgavane. In a protest in 2011, one person died during police action and eight others were injured. The protesters had raised concerns over the credibility of the Environment Impact Assessment Report prepared by the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute.

61% people accept compensation for Jaitapur

http://m.indianexpress.com/news/boos...-deal/1211401/

The Jaitapur Nuclear Power Project (JNPP) has picked pace with 61 per cent of the project affected persons (PAPs) accepting the additional land compensation package of Rs 22.5 lakh per hectare since March this year.

According to Sandeep Singhroy, director, JNPP, of the total 2,336 khatedars or land title holders, 1,484 have collected the land compensation cheques so far. While the figure stood at less than 300 PAPs till March this year, it saw a sharp increase after the state government approved the additional ex-gratia payment of Rs 22.5 lakh per hectare in February this year, as recommended by a state government-appointed committee based on market rates. Of the 1,484 who have opted for the compensation, 1,423 have taken the ex-gratia payment so far.

“The numbers are increasing by the week. There is a general encouragement among the people after the announcement of the ex-gratia amount and the progress of accepting cheques is satisfactory,” Singhroy said.

The ex-gratia amount of Rs 22.5 lakh per hectare is reported to be more than 80 times the original amount. While land for the project was acquired at different rates, NPCIL sources said the initial payments were as low as Rs 25,000 per hectare.

The land acquisition amount was earlier fixed at Rs 14.77 crore as per the Land Acquisition Act. But the NPCIL has now earmarked an additional Rs 211 crore as ex-gratia payment, following the panel’s recommendations.

A total of 938.026 hectares (692.311 hectares for the plant site and 245.715 hectares for the residential complex) has been acquired for the project. The state government handed over possession of the land to the NPCIL in 2010.

The rehabilitation package agreement, signed between the state government and NPCIL in October 2010, also requires NPCIL to provide Rs 2 crore per village for civic amenities and Rs 25 lakh per village per year for maintenance. The maintenance amount will be increased by 10 per cent every three years.

NPCIL has also agreed to provide permanent employment to one person from each project-affected family in Group ‘C’ or Group ‘D’ categories if they are qualified for the post. If the person is not qualified or the family does not want the job, NPCIL will make a one-time payment of Rs 5 lakh per family in lieu of employment.

The package includes cash compensation — 750 days’ minimum agricultural wage to families of those who have become landless post-acquisition, 500 days’ wage to marginal land owners, 375 days’ wage for small land owners, and 625 days’ minimum agricultural wage to agricultural labourers or other labourers who are dependent on the land.

The project has been facing protests from villagers of the affected areas in Madban, Niveli, Mithgavhane and Karel.

baramati-solar-power-plant-starts-producing-in-record-time-

http://www.dnaindia.com/mumbai/repor...d-time-2039827

On November 26, when the state was mourning the sixth anniversary of the terrorist attack in Mumbai, a 50 Megawatt solar power plant was added to the Maharashtra's grid by Mahagenco, the state-run power generation company which had commissioned the plant only on July 13, 2014.

"The plant which is based in Shirsuphal, Baramati (Pune) is the first solar plant India has established under public-private-partnership. Moreover, it was set up in record 4.5 months," said a top official of the Mahagenco. In the phase 1 of the two-phase project the plant will generate 83 million units of power every year.

The state already has a 125 MW solar power plant in Dhule and 5 MW at Chandrapur. The addition of the Baramati plant has taken the total solar power production in the state to 180 MW, which is 1.58% of the total current power generation in the state (11,367 MW).

Jaitapur-nuclear-project-makes-headway

http://m.timesofindia.com/india/Jait...w/46902037.cms
MUMBAI: After PM Narendra Modi's recent visit to France, the controversial and trouble-ridden Jaitapur Nuclear Power Project in Maharashtra's Ratnagiri district moved a step forward.

The Nuclear Power Corporation and a French firm, Areva, signed what is known as a pre-engineering agreement conforming to the "Make In India" campaign, according to an announcement by the department of atomic energy (DAE) on Sunday.

The Rs 1000 billion project envisages the setting up of initially two Evolutional Pressurised Reactors each of 1650 mwe in collaboration with France. On June 18, 2014, the Shiv Sena launched an agitation against the plan. But Modi has assured the French government that there was "no rethink about the project".

Spread over an area of nearly 968 hectares, the scheme eventually envisages the setting up of six reactors totalling 9900 mwes.

The nuclear project, which has attracted strong opposition from various quarters on environmental and safety grounds, kicked off on December 6, 2010, with India and France signing an agreement for the construction of two reactors and supply of nuclear fuel for 25 years. In the last five years it has literally remained on paper.

Dabhol plant to reopen after 532 days

The mega power plant in Ratnagiri district would start generating from Monday, after being closed for almost 530 days.

Ratnagiri Gas & Power Pvt Ltd (RGPPL), which took over the plant formerly known as the Dabhol project, had recently secured 1.98 million standard cubic feet per day (mscmd) of gas. The per-unit tariff was projected at Rs 4.70 in the bidding.

The plant was shut since December 28, 2013, for want of gas and due to financial constraints. Government-owned RGPPL plans to generate 500 Mw, against a capacity of 1,967 Mw. RGPPL board would meet on Tuesday to decide.

State aims to add 14,400 MW to renewable energy portfolio by 2020 -

The Maharashtra government has set its sights on enhancing installed capacity for renewable energy to 21,100 MW in the next five years, from about 6,700 MW at present, with a thrust on solar power.
The state cabinet on Tuesday approved a policy to add 14,400 MW by 2020 to the renewable energy capacity through public-private partnerships and captive power projects, and rolled out a slew of incentives for developers of these power projects.
More than 50 per cent, or 7,500 MW is expected to come from solar power. The target is also to add 5,000

Bhel-commissions-thermal-power-unit-in-Maharashtra

http://m.timesofindia.com/business/india-business/Bhel-commissions-thermal-power-unit-in-Maharashtra/articleshow/51645900.cms
NEW DELHI: State-owned power equipment maker Bhel today said it has commissioned its 5th 500 MW unit at Chandrapur Super Thermal Power Project (STPP) in Maharashtra.
"With this, 9 coal-based sets aggregating to 3,340 MW, all supplied and commissioned by Bhel, are now operational at Chandrapur STPP of Maharashtra State Power Generation Co. Ltd (MAHAGENCO)," Bhel said in press release.
The commissioned unit is the second 500 MW unit of Stage-III (2x500 MW) of the project being executed by Bhel.
Bhel has been a major partner in the power development programme of the state of Maharashtra.
The company has contributed more than 15,500 MW of generating capacity to the state, which is the highest capacity added by Bhel in a single state. It has supplied over 85 per cent of the coal-based sets installed by state utility.
Bhel's scope of work in the Chandrapur STPP Stage-III contract envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Steam Turbines, Generators and Boilers, along with associated Auxiliaries and Electricals, besides state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs).
Bhel had commissioned the first set of this project in March, 2015. Bhel-make 500 MW sets of this rating class today form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above the national average as well as the international benchmarks. KKS ADI SA
