CRZ clearance for the 50 MW tidal power project near Mandvi in Kutch proposed by Gujarat Power Corporation Limited was also granted by the authority.

That's really good news, Mandvi is good location for tidal power project.

I just read here about Mundra Ultra Mega Power Plant which is located at Mundra, Gujarat. Wow it produces 4000MW of power which consists of 5 800MW units and also read that it is the Largest Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant in the world. Felt proud when I read that. But one thing scares me that the coal which will be used for the plant will be imported from Indonesia. Don't we have enough coal mine resources in India to reach the need of coal plants?

Theres actually another 4000MW plant by Adani just next door to Tatas one.

There is Coal in India, but Coal Mining is a Central Govt Monopoly through "Coal India Ltd", the irregularities in how they allocate that Coal has come to be known as the "Coalgate" scam.

I know that Essar have their own Coal Mines in Mozambique and Adani have theirs in Australia to supply their Indian plants, all to secure their business models from all the scams/corruption in Indias Coal sector.

I know its a multi billion dollar group and they dont need my sympathy, but I really do feel sorry for Tata because this "UMPP" was actually a Central Govt project, but even then, the Centre are basically screwing the company for being able to deliver a power plant, by not delivering Coal.

Gujarat recommends NPCIL power plant for CRZ clearance

Quote:
The Gujarat Coastal Zone Management Authority (GCRZMA) has given nod for Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited's (NPCIL) proposed 6,000 Mw nuclear power plant in Mithivirdi, Bhavnagar. It has recommended the project for costal regulatory zone (CRZ) clearance to the Union ministry of environment and forests (MoEF).

The proposed nuclear power plant (NPP), with six light water reactors (LWR) of 1000 Mw capacity each, has been facing stiff opposition from locals on the grounds that it would cause irreparable damage to environment.

The NPP at Mithivirdi is being be set up 40 km from Bhavnagar and is located on sea coast on west side of the Gulf of Khambhat, and will be spread across 777 hectare.

The GCRZMA after hearing representation from NPCIL decided to "recommend to the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India to grant CRZ clearance for construction of intake, outfall facilities, jetty and Desalination plant at Village: Mithivirdi, Dist: Bhavnagar by M/S Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited", at a recently held meeting.

According to NPCIL sources, the project has got necessary recommendations from the Gujarat government and now it was upto the central government to provide environment and CRZ clearances.

The report of the public hearing on the nuclear power project has already been submitted to the MoEF by the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB), they added.

What's Gujarat's total "power capacity per capita" ?
Don't know the exact terminology for that.

Total installed capacity as of Jan 2013 acc to CEA was 23387MW, I havent updated the first page for a while, but would safely say its probably close to 25GW by now.

MH is a few GW ahead, Ive never seen installed capacity discussed "per-capita". Prob because it tends to follow industrial demand rather than domestic. But I guess you could use the figures from that link and divide by population to get to the kind of thing you are looking for?

If I know Gujjus, then India's power crises (no, the crises has abated somewhat and is getting better) ... power problems are a huge business opportunity. Remember that the Tatas speak Gujarati at home.

India's 3-5 major business communities are Gujarati or near Gujarati.

Parsis, Ismailis, Marwaris, Jains and 'Bombayiites'.
(I consider this last one a community all it's own, plus the majority of Bombay finance is Gujju controlled)

Gujju farmers are jumping up and down to sell their marginal, arid lands for projects.

Power state Gujarat has put in the framework to ship in coal from the east coast, gas from the middle east and all over to fire up mega power projects and will int money supplying to the worlds largest market India, and if possible to Pakistan too.

Using said logic, Gujarat should get into steel production by shipping in ore and coal form the east coast. Steel mega-projects worht $ 100's billions are stuck. Easterners are huge on the old school Bhudaan and land reform ideas so hard for them to let go of their precious lands. The old Zamindaars seemd to be particularly brutish east side.

No problem, Gujarat's seems to have land to spare.

If Ive understood correctly, I think the main point you are trying to make is valid and is likely to happen in due time. Essar Steel at Hazira is already one of Indias largest and most advanced steel mills. Steel, Copper and Aluminium processing in Gujarat will undoubtedly have a big multiplier effect on manufacturing as well.

Biggest hurdle is whether their terrible experiences in Eastern India have permanently scared off the likes of Posco or ArcelorMittal from ever investing in a new project in India at all.

Having a lot of economically weak but resource rich states in the East was a ready made opportunity for "India" to rebalance growth/wealth/productivity etc, but its not looking likely to end up like that.

Some points are very valid; some criticism is a bit unfair.

When Essar's Hazira plant was started, it was using electric arc furnace. Advantage being your inputs can be very flexible. Scrap from Alang, Sponge Iron from Indonesia, Gas from Hazira etc. For Eastern states that have captive mines, this would be rather politically impossible to emulate.

The unfortunate reality is, if you sit on a piece of land which is bestowed with some natural resource, you are basically screwed.

SEL,which is engaged in textiles and real estate industry,has received the letter of intent (LOI) from the state government for its Rs 4,149 crore facility to come up in Bhakodar village close to Jafrabad.

All decks have been cleared for the company to start the construction of the LNG terminal.We have issued a letter of intent, a senior government official told TOI,adding SEL has also received all clearances from the Union ministry of environment and forests (MoEF).

SEL managing director Nikhil Merchant was unavailable for comments as he was abroad.
SEL has joined hands with Canadas Teekay Corp to set up the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) off Jafrabad coast.

SEL will hold 51 per cent stake in the LNG company,while Teekay will have 38 per cent.The remaining 11 per cent will be held by state-owned Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC).

SEL has signed gas off-take agreement with GSPC and Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) for long-term utilization of the facility.The regasified LNG will be supplied to the gas grid,which is just a km away from the proposed location.The all-weather direct berthing terminal will be constructed with an investment of Rs 4,149 crore,70 per cent of which will be financed through debt.It will have a capacity of 10 million metric tones per annum (mmpta).Sources said the terminal is expected to be ready by September 2016.

SEL has won the project after GMB adopted the Swiss Challenge (comparative bidding) bidding method.However,no other companies came up to match SELs bid.

Doctor plans 15 more biogas plants across state

AHMEDABAD: Country's largest biogas plant producing 5,000 cubic meters of gas per day using agriculture waste and animal dung has become operational in Sundarpur village of Umreth taluka in Anand district.

The man behind this biogas plant Dr Bharat Patel, an Ahmedabad-based orthopedic surge, now plans to set ups 15 such plants in other parts of the state with an estimated cost of Rs 350 crore. The biogas plants are planned in north Gujarat districts of Sabarkantha, Banaskantha, Mehsana and Junagadh, Rajkot in Saurashtra regions. Patel also want to set up three more biogas plants in Anand.

"The biogas plant (in Sundarpur) supplies over 5,000 cubic meter gas to nearby industries where it is used in furnaces, wielding work and melting copper. The slurry that remains after extraction of gas is used as organic manure by farmers for better productivity," Patel told TOI.

He said that the capacity of the biogas plant can be increased to 10,000 cubic meters. The current plant has investment of Rs 35 crore. Patel also plans to take it further by generating power using biogas. "This biogas can be used by households, small industries and even as fuel for vehicles. Once the capacity goes up we can even generate power. This way the entire village can become self-sufficient in terms of energy," Patel added.

The entire biogas plant uses multi-feed German technology to produce gas. The raw material for the plant is collected from nearby villages and sugar factories. There are about 50 vehicles to collect waste like banana stems, sugarcane waste, potato peels, green waste including flowers from temples and garbage from villages within 2 km of the plant.
