HYDERABAD: Good news for the people of Telangana. The state will get its share in Krishnapatnam power plant in the first phase. Krishnapatnam is likely to start its commercial operation on August 10. In the first phase the plant will generate 800 MW of which, Telangana share will be 424 MW. Most of the power problems of Telangana will be solved when it starts receiving power from Krishnapatnam.

The present deficit for Telangana was around 200 MW to 250 MW. Once, Telangana get its share, the power owes will be solved to a maximum extent for the time being.

The board meeting of Krishnapatnam, which was held on Saturday, reportedly decided that August 10 is the commercial operation day.

The officials from Telangana also wanted their share in ‘infirm power.’ The ‘infirm power’ is power generated prior to commercial operations. The Krishnapatnam trial run began recently, but there were initial hiccups. The plant generated around 300 MW initially. But, it reduced to 250 MW and there was no production for one day, official sources said.

Hyderabad, July 11:

Southern and northern power distribution companies of Telangana have been called upon to sign power purchase agreements with Hinduja National Power Corporation Ltd, which is at the advanced stage of commissioning the 1,040-MW thermal power project near Visakhapatnam.

The erstwhile Andhra Pradesh State had earlier entered into an agreement. Now, with the state division, power generated from the project will be shared in the ratio of 53.89 and 44.11 between the two states.

Suresh Chanda, Principal Secretary Energy to Telangana Government, has directed the southern and northern power distribution companies and AP Transco to finalise the agreements.

AP Transco has been called upon to sign up with the two discoms in accordance to the sharing formula between the two states.

The Hinduja project is nearing completion after nearly two decades of its initial plans and is expected to be commissioned later during the year. This thermal project, which was delayed due to regulatory environment, will be a boon to both the states now facing severe power crunch.

During recent interactions, the AP Government has convinced the NTPC management to allow its rail sidings to be used to transport coal to the Hinduja plant site. The Hinduja project is located near the NTPC Simhadri project.

Hinduja National Power had earlier agreed to supply power generated from the plant to the state. Now, the Telangana Government is keen that the project gets implemented as per schedule during the year. By entering into power purchase agreements, they will also be able to benefit from the project as per the earlier plan to supply to the unified State.

As per the Government order, Telangana expects power sharing from the project in the ratio of 53:89: 46.11 between Telangana and AP.

The power supply will be decided at the tariff structure decided by the AP Electricity Regulatory Commission, which is a joint regulator for both the states.

Hyderabad: With hydel power generation being very poor so far, thermal stations are feeling the pressure. Thermal plants generally go in for overhaul at this time of the year with hydel power generation picking up. This year, there has been no respite for thermal plants, most of which are already past half their lifespan.

Currently, hydel power generation in AP is at 4 MU and zero in Telangana. According to sources, the load on different thermal plants across both states over the last five years has increased by 10 to 12 per cent. Each week, three to six breakdowns of thermal plants have been recorded on an average over the last six months.

The over-dependence on thermal power has reduced the efficiency of plants awaiting overhaul for over one to one-and-a-half years. Though thermal power is the only constant source of power owing to the absence of gas, wind, solar and uncertainty of hydel power generation, the states have been turning a blind eye to the condition of thermal plants.

Meanwhile, according to the central ministry of power, the average life of coal power plants is 25 years. Most plants in the state have been running for over 32 to 45 years.

“Frequent breakdowns have affected the performance and most thermal stations are running below their capacity. Due to the sole dependence on thermal power for long periods, the plant load factor at, which many units are being run, is unhealthy. It is the impact of wrong policy decisions,” said an official.

Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday asked the Telangana Genco officials to step up efforts to produce 6,000 MW of power to overcome the power shortage in the state. Officials told Mr Rao that at present, only 4,400 MW of power was available for T-state, though the demand is for 7,000 MW.

The CM directed officials to identify suitable locations to set up hydel-power generation plants, besides pursuing the case with the Centre on the setting up a 4,000-MW NTPC plant at Kothagudem, as promised in the AP Reorganisation Bill-2014.

The CM said Telangana has the capacity to produce 5,000 MW of hydel-power, if effective polices are framed and executed. As a temporary relief, he asked officials to purchase 2,000 MW of power from Chhattisgarh and set up dedicated lines from there to T-state for supply of power.

Mr Rao asked officials to procure 1500 MW coming from the North Grid to the South Grid through Warda-Dichpally power line.

He also told officials to take up extensive survey of all the rivers, especially Krishna, Godavari, Pranahitha, Penganga, Manjeera etc. to explore the opportunities for enhancing hydel-power generation.

He said the state should try to achieve 20,000 MW of power production within three years. He also asked officials to check land availability near Manuguru and Illendu in Khammam district to set up new power plants.

He said there is scope for further generation of hydel-power at Jurala project which needs immediate attention.

HYDERABAD: To minimise the power shortage in the state, chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao has ordered the officials to lay 200 mw transmission lines from Chhattisgarh.

In order to make the state self-sufficient in power, he asked the officials to step up efforts to generate 20,000 mw in three years. KCR reviewed the status of power availability with senior officials including Genco chairman Prabhakar Rao, and SPDCL MD Mohammed Rizvi at the Secretariat here on Monday.

The officials informed the chief minister that while the demand remained at 7000 mw, the availability of power was 4,400 mw. KCR chalked out short, mid and long-term plans to bail the state out of power crisis. As the first step towards achieving 20,000 mw target in three years, the chief minister directed the officials to step up efforts to generate 6,000 MW immediately.

He also told the officials to constantly hold talks with the Union government to obtain 4,000 MW power from NTPC as promised to the state under the AP Reorganization Act 2014. Further, 1500 MW power available from Vardha-Dichpalli line connecting Northern and Southern Power grids should be obtained, he added.

The chief minister specifically instructed the officials to make use of all available water resources to generate hydel power. He observed that the Telangana state has the possibility of generating 5,000 MW hydel power.

For this, he commissioned a comprehensive survey on Krishna, Godavari, Penuganga, Pranahitha, Manjeera and all water bodies in the state to generate maximum hydel power.

Presently, he opined only a limited power is being generated from Jurala project while it has availability of 11 lakh cusecs of water flow which can be used for generating more power. Further, he listed out several places where the state stand a chance of generating more power including on Krishna and Godavari rivers.

He exuded confidence that in three years the state can provide 24-hour uninterrupted power supply to all including agricultural operations if it can make use of all available resources.

International consortium proposes to build power plant in Telangana

http://www.thehansindia.com/posts/i...oses-to-build-power-plant-in-Telangana-111366

A Saudi-American-Chinese consortium has proposed to build a coal-fired power plant in Telangana at a cost of around USD 3-4.5 billion.

Saudi businessman Faiz Al-Abideen, who leads the consortium, presented a letter of commitment to Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali who was in Saudi Arabia to perform Haj, a media report said.

Ali welcomed the proposal and said his government’s top priority is to attract foreign direct investment from abroad, especially Saudi Arabia and will discuss the proposal with Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the Arab news reported.

"I came here little knowing that I will go back with this concrete proposal from Saudi Arabia. We will have to discuss its feasibility with the Environment Ministry and other relevant government departments," Ali said.

The group has built 17 power plants in Saudi Arabia and abroad, including Turkey. "We have huge experience in power plants and will wait for the response from the Telangana government," Abideen said.

"It will generate between 2,500 and 3,500 megawatts and utilise coal that is said to be found in abundance in the state’s Khammam district," he said. The cost of the plant is expected to be around USD 3-4.5 billion.

The basic thing one has to know regd the thermal power plant's installation place is that they have to be established around the coastline compared to the middleland areas as they are bind up not only with local coals but also with imported coals.
In the past, when AP was united and the need came to expand power stations most of the private companies has shown interest to establish in coastal line rather than middle lands.
And now both of the regions got divided into 2 states.
1. AP has problems like no capital, revenue deficit, no central or state department bases, no world class institutions and I have to say AP almost lost everything due to bifurcation.
2. Telangana, though 29th state of India got it's capital Hyderabad, surplus budget, world class institutions, almost all central & state departments bases are in Telangana. And the only loss for Telangana is power deficit.
My straight question to the people of telangana and KCR is why didn't the CM of the state didn't take necessary steps to buy the power from outside though it has surplus budget.
Moreover, though AP's population is more than Telangana's, congress party had allocated the power based on the consumption but not the population ratio.
But, when it comes to other issues like state loans it has been divided on population ratio as per AP reorganisation bill. Is this really a justifiable division??
Just sticking to the current issue of power problem, If KCR is really concerned about his people's interests he should go to the center and talk regd this to resolve or reduce the problem.
I WISH BOTH STATES MUST MAINTAIN GOOD RELATIONSHIP!!

As it is your entire logic is flawed. Majority of the coal used in power plants is local (90%), only a small percentage is imported. Now tell me which costs less to transport by road? 90% of the required coal from Singareni to coast or 10% from coast to Singareni/Ramagundam? But even if we were to go by your flawed logic how do you explain the 1500MW genco thermal plant in Kadapa, which is neither near to the coal reserves nor coast?

Even the Government of India strongly proposes the establishment of Pit-head stations i.e. establishment of power plants nearby to coal mines, but for decades under TDP and Congress rule they deliberately ignored this principal. The expansion of Ramagundam stage 2 has been pending for decades while RTPP Kadapa was expanded in record speed to stage 2 and even stage 3 (!!!) by then governments, despite massive protests by Telanganites to expand Ramagundam first. Entire Telangana which has 10% of India's coal reserves has only 2300MW genco thermal plants, while AP which has zero coal reserves boasts of 3600MW genco thermal plants!!! Infact this was one of the major issues raised in the Telangana agitation, when Andhra/Seema leaders were openly discriminating the region by shifting plants that were supposed to be setup in Telangana to Andhra/Seema regions. No wonder the AP reorganisation bill says division of power should be done on demand, because of the amount of injustice done to Telangana under United AP when it came to power plants!

Coal reserves in india -- 300 billion tonnes
Coal reserves in Telangana -- 22 billion tonnes
Coal produced in India -- 550 million tonnes
Coal produced in telangana -- 55+ million tonnes [ 2013]

Thermal Projects in telangana
Central Thermal Plants :
----------------------
NTPC[ 2800 MW] : daily requirement 40000 tonnes.. [ yearly 14 million tonnes] .
Source: http://www.thehindu.com/news/nation...for-powerstarved-telangana/article6514995.ece

1) Singareni -- 32000 tonnes
2) rest 8000t- Coal India

State Thermal Projects:
-----------------------
KTPP Bhoopalapalli

Stage I -- 500MW
Stage II-- 600MW [ should be operational by feb 2014..then shifted to oct..now slated to get operational by May 2015]

RTS Ramagundam Total -- 62 MW
KTPS Kothagudem Total -- 1720 MW

Total MW[ projects under operation] -- 2200 MW..roughly 10million tonnes of coal. .So 50% of coal produced in singareni is used by these projects in telangana...
Coal is not only used for power production but also used in glass,cement,steel,fertilizers industries.
Telangana has a booming cement industry and most[ roughly] 20+ % coal goes to cement industry and to likes of nava bharat ferro

Roughly 65-70% coal produced by singareni is used in telangana region.

How much Singareni coal is used by AP..?

Roughly 20-25% of coal produced in singareni is used by AP.. maharashtra and karnataka uses 10-15% coal of singareni
Cement factories around guntur,anantapur and kurnool use most of this coal.
Fertilizer companies in AP [ esp Kakinada region] uses orissa coal..

Thermal projects in AP:

Central Thermal Projects:

1) NTPC Simhadri 2000MW -- This thermal plant uses mahanadi coal and imported coal..singareni coal is mostly used as backup..[ so we can say roughly 10% of its needs]..In fact none of the proposed and would be operational thermal plants around vizag will use singareni coal..they use coal from orissa and imported coal

State Thermal Projects:

NTTPS Bzwda 1760 MW-- They hardly use singareni coal[ used to be major customer a decade back].. 15% of coal requirement comes from singareni[which is used as backup]..again orissa is major supplier[65%] and Australia[20%]

Krishnapatnam [800 MW]-- 70% Orissa[ Talcher mines] and 30% imported coal

RTPS Kadapa 1050 MW-- When started it is entirely dependent on singareni coal..
Currently 60% of plant needs comes from singareni coal and rest from mahanadi coal fields, western coal fields. With krishnapatnam port[ 150 kms] in its vicinity they are using imported coal too ...

AP is more dependent on Orissa coal..and railway connectivity was always there with orissa since british times....[ there is no rail connectivity to telangana with orissa..they need to build new lines for getting more coal for more power plants in telangana because singareni coal production for telangana power usage is already saturated] hence most of the power plants which require orissa coal are in coastal regions of AP..and that is why railway divisions of Vijaywada, Vishakapatnam earn more than Secunderabad division..[@Sach4barca Coal usually is not transported on roads ]

Various clients of singareni can be seen in this article below..and no surprises NTPC Simhadri..NTTPS Vijayawada and Krishnapatnam are not mentioned in the list..currently RTPS is only major client of SCCL..
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...lore-mining-overseas/articleshow/40824554.cms

Why AP coastal thermal projects are using less singareni coal..?

With more cement projects coming up in AP and telangana][cement requires high quality coal].the usage of singareni coal for power has drastically reduced..[india uses low quality coal for power grade D to G]
http://www.portal.gsi.gov.in/portal/page?_pageid=127,721708&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL
The reason is production of coal is not growing at the rate of usage..and so power companies[esp coastal regions of AP] are now-a-days more dependant on orissa/imported coal..

Why coastal region is attracting more thermal plants?

Let me tell you here coastal region means not only AP[ entire country]..

1) Currently India imports 25% of its coal needs..despite having 5th largest reserves..majority of imported coal is used for power generation..which roughly goes to 40% of thermal power produced in india is from imported coal..
domestic coal is used for cement,steel,fertilizer and other major industries..

Source: http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...w/31568756.cms

2) Production of coal is not increasing at rate of usage..[ one must appreciate Singareni its always bang on target unlike coal india]

3) Instead of laying new rail lines to cater inland coal plants which is hard way..the easy way is to import coal and construct power plants near those ports....as usual government is doing easy way

4)Most private power majors[ like adani and lanco] are buying mines in australia and transporting it to india..and their power plants are usually at coastal areas..like mundra and kondapalli..

5) Currently 30000 MW [ yes thirty thousand] of power projects are in various stages around Krishnapatnam alone [ just imagine the dependence on imported coal of india]) and also imagine the pollution in this region when they become operational.. and two more sea ports are proposed by center near it..

The production of coal is so low..that with 22 Billon tonnes reserves in telangana ..imported coal is going to be used for entire 6000 MW power plants coming up in the state.. the state has no port so has to depend on machilipatnam/vizag/krishnapatnam ports.

Source: http://www.thehindu.com/news/nationa...?homepage=true

Whats the solution..?

Well the solution is simple increase capacity of public sectors companies but because of monopoly and attitude this is not happening..The recent ordinance by coal ministry has a interesting line.. coal mines will be given to private sector[ currently they are nationalised]..opening them to multinational companies..They may produce for their use and import to their countries..[ like lanco and adani does in australia] or they can sell it here..
This could be revolutionary just like what happened to telecom sector..but unlike telecom this could harm our nature too..but path is full of thorns
because unions might not agree to it..environmental issues..so india's dependence on imported coal may rise but not subside..which further increases our trade deficit..

Immediate Solution for Power problem in Telangana..

Decreasing Transmission loss..currently telangana has about 30% transmission loss ..[ for every 1000 units user is receiving 700 units] Government should focus on this.. AP successfully focused on this and recently eluru town has just 3% transmission loss..a record in country..

Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/44152200.cms

TG government must seriously implement this and learn how AP did it in fact center is also learning..and implement it in towns like Karimnagar which are of same size of eluru..
Power losses in old city..[ with MIM as friend its tough to do]


Medium Term Solution..
Solar usage..already we have seen many announcements like solar city in mahabubnagar etc.. and they are in various stages of implementation..

Long Term Solution:
It will become another huge essay I wont write it :)

Conclusion:

@Sach4Barca

600 km is considered to be the lead distance and kadapa is within this limits..[ NTR envisaged that every region should have thermal station ]your argument of plants should be where coal is produced is wrong..raw material in vicinity is not the only factor for a factory there are many parameters..

But I will agree regarding your Ramagundam point..RTPS expanded instead of Ramagudam..but you must understand ramagundam already has NTPC hence there could have been environmental issues..one must remember there was no concept of Ultra Mega Thermal Projects ..4000 MW and more in a particular place in [1988]..and also may be rulers then thought KTPS has 1000+MW NTTPS has 1000+MW..so RTPS must also have same 1000 MW so all three regions have same capacity power stations ..Krishnapatnam was not in horizon then

I think by now you must have understood your flawed export and import statements ..usage of singareni coal for power in respective states and their clients.. by reading the sources I have provided and by now u must have understood why 2300 MW in telangana and 3600 MW in AP... and I request people to stop listening to aggressive leaders.. do your own research rationally..you will find flaws in their arguments..I am providing the most important link to you again here so that u will change your view on imports of coal

http://www.thehindu.com/news/nation...n-mou-for-power-generation/article6471655.ece

Infact this was one of the major issues raised in the Telangana agitation, when Andhra/Seema leaders were openly discriminating the region by shifting plants that were supposed to be setup in Telangana to Andhra/Seema regions. No wonder the AP reorganisation bill says division of power should be done on demand, because of the amount of injustice done to Telangana under United AP when it came to power plants!
There is no need to play the blame game here.... u blaming the leaders in a democratic country is equivalent to blaming urself.... if u feel the leaders of the 'past' r the prime culprits then i say our fathers n forefathers who elected them r the real culprits... n just bcoz the cms were from seemandhra it doesnt behove u to say they showed regionalism... mind u this system is not in the hands of one person may he be cm or pm... this system is in hands of each n everyone of us.... so to degrade or destroy a system or to construct n repair a system each n everyone of us have equal responsibility....why dont u try thinking abt the mlas n mps n other peoples representatives of telangana region who didnt care for their regional development n people of telangana who appointed such half assed dumbos to be their leaders.... so i can only say this ' dont appease ur consciousness by blaming others'... it is an imperfect system with imperfect people in which there r many hurdles to overcome.... so pls look for answers n solutions rather than searching for people to accuse... more like what kcr did yesterday... in his 30 min long speech ...he failed to explain why it took him 5 months to react (even if what he said is true) n why is he so ignorant on problems of his farmers.....

Seriously ? In entire India plans are right next coal pits but in AP alone they are hundreds of miles way?. I dont have cauliflower sized flowers in my ears. The above posts have also debunked the nonsense telangana coal is used heavily in andhra plants. Yes no really serious guy gives any respect to "facts" from telangana agitaion - you have been fooled big time.

Disagree. Your logic is flawed. Thermal plants r near coast for coal import reason. Example if a coal mine couldn't supply coal for some reason like strikes, natural cause etc..

It always good to have backup for emergency that is part of planning .. Simple

Telegana wants power just because u gave coal.. What a joke. Why don't u ask TN or Karnataka... Whom u Supply coal..

Andhra need to give land for plant. After plant start Andhra ppl take pollution... And telegana takes power...

Regarding Hinduja or krishnapatnam has telegana money so telegana needs power from them.. How about Andhra ppl have money in ORR, Aitport etc.. Why no income share to Andhra?


What happened to Chandigarh power which ur govt promised?

Okey. Dear Andhra Brother...RaviKiran,

I was excpted your long post.you have reached my expectations. Thanks..you have neatly presented with mixed up facts and lies..posted articles which are in favor one region(you have been doing all this on this forum(when both state gvts announced 1956 issue/Vijwada(God Bless ) as a capital).
-------
Tired upto maximum . manipulated the numbers/assumed numbers. continued his dominations on two issues

1. sccl coal linkage to apgenco plants 2. Why coastal region is attracting more thermal plants?(if the cm was from telangana. he would have planned it in telangana region. simple logic dats it)


----
only Rayalaseema plant, Tata Rao plants from andhra which procure coal from sccl. aslu sccl coal ee plants lo usage cheytledu anattu cheppav .backup ha joke ha? but i agree with you these plants are not entirely depended on sccl.

----
How could you frgt that 100+ articles floated on media during the sakulajanulasamme(production hits/units shutdown at these plants)

Tata Rao - Total 10 rakes. 5 from MCL 3/4 sccl, 1 from aus. (if sccl stops its supply.. atleast 2/4 shutdown avthayi)

Thermal stations in Andhra Pradesh mostly depend on Mahanadi coal fields and Singareni Collieries for their daily needs. But of late, supplies from both these coal companies have become insufficient to meet the increasing demand.

“We are receiving coal on daily basis and this is enabling power generation without any hassles. But if the coal supply is affected even for an hour, then its impact can be severe.” “We are getting three rakes of coal a day from the Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) as an emergency measure.
http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Vijayawada/severe-shortage-of-coal-stares-nttps/article6112371.ece


June 23,2014
Currently the Railways is supplying two rakes (each with 4,000 tonnes capacity) of coal to VTPS while four rakes are being supplied to RTPP. Only 8,000 tonnes of coal are being loaded from MCL in Talcher, currently, and around 10,000 tonnes from Singareni.http://www.deccanchronicle.com/140624/nation-current-affairs/article/coal-crunch-hits-power-generation-andhra-pradesh-and-telangana

June 11, 2014

Singareni Collieries is supposed to supply 3.3 lakh tonnes of coal per month. However, it is now supplying only 2.2 lakh tonnes per month resulting in huge gap between demand and supply. Incidentally, the Singareni Collieries has an agreement with RTPP to supply coal till 2030. For all the five units of RTPP, 15,000 -16,500 tonnes of coal is needed per day. At present only 12,000 tonnes of imported coal stock was available with RTPP.

http://www.thehansindia.com/posts/index/2014-06-23/Power-crisis-to-aggravate-99317

The power generation units need 6000-Gas Calabic Value (GCV) coal for full production, but, presently, all use only 3000 GCV local coal from Singareni Mines.


http://www.newindianexpress.com/states/andhra_pradesh/article367231.ece?service=print

RTPP needs 15,000 to 16,500 tonnes of coal every day. Coal supply from Singareni has become erratic after bifurcation of the state. Presently, there is hardly 12,000 tonnes of foreign coal in the yard of RTPP which is insufficient for day-to-day power generation. The RTPP mixes the foreign coal with Indian coal for power generation. The power generation has come down to 350 mw due to coal shortage. The power generation might come to a complete halt if coal supply is not restored immediately.

Ravi . there is no single fertilizer plant that uses SCCL Coal.(Ramagundam shutdown) and Tadicharla(near Bhoolapally) KNR/Warangal boarder coal belt was allocated to Tgenco.but all are being deallocated as per sc orders. now they are on hope(if they gt this coal block.. go for wiki..for more no chepina matalu bold lines avasaramledu).

NTPC @Ramagundam(Major upto 2030) Bhoolapally(entirely - 7,000 tonnes of coal a day/500wm) depended on sccl and KTPS have coal linkage from MCL Odisha how many times sccl asked unite state gvt to allocate/add new railway lines Munugur, Kothegudem,bhoolapally(Who neglected). and sccl have coal blocks in other states too not just in telangana.

SCCL has been generous in terms of coal supplies. They have supplied nearly 6 MT more than what was expected from them during 2011-12. However, it has been below expected levels from MCL last year

’SCCL is diversifying into power generation and 2 x 600 MW power project is under construction at Srirampur in Adilabad district. Coal transportation from mines to this power station is proposed through dedicated railway system with RITES, which can also be used for supply of fuel oil and reverse transport of fly ash,”

Telegana wants power just because u gave coal.. What a joke. Why don't u ask TN or Karnataka... Whom u Supply coal..

Andhra need to give land for plant. After plant start Andhra ppl take pollution... And telegana takes power...

Regarding Hinduja or krishnapatnam has telegana money so telegana needs power from them.. How about Andhra ppl have money in ORR, Aitport etc.. Why no income share to Andhra?
