Tamil Nadu is likely to get 617 MW of additional power from the Neyveli Lignite Corporation by March 2014, according to B. Surender Mohan, Chairman-cum-Managing Director, NLC.

He told a press conference here on Monday that from the NTPL project, a joint venture of the NLC and the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation, being set up at Tuticorin, the State would get 387 MW and another 230 MW would come from the Thermal Power Station-II Expansion in Neyveli.

Decision taken minutes before poll code came into force

Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, who is also the Chairman of Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL), has selected Tata Projects to execute the Rs 2,184-crore power project at Bidadi. The decision was taken minutes before the Election Commission of India on Wednesday announced that the model code of conduct would come into force in the State with immediate effect, ahead of the May 5 Assembly elections.

The Neyveli Lignite Corporation is all set to increase power generation by 1,000 MW during the current year. With this, the installed capacity of the NLC would go up from 2,740 MW to 3,740 MW.

Giving a hint on this growth prospects in his Republic Day address at the Neyveli Township here on Saturday, NLC Chairman-cum-Managing Director B.Surender Mohan said that the first unit (250 MW) of the NLC Thermal Power Station-II Expansion project was expected to be commissioned in July and the second unit of the same capacity (250 MW) in September 2013.

With environment clearances delaying Indian Oil Corporation (IOC)’s product pipeline, the state-run company plans to commission its Rs 30,000-crore refinery at Paradip in Odisha this September.

Strengthening its overseas footprint, state-run BHEL today said a renovated hydro power plant project with enhanced generation capacity has been commissioned in Tajikistan.

In the first week of December 2012, the state government awarded a Rs 2,184-crore gas-based electricity project to Alstom, Switzerland. The company will set up the facility at Bidadi. The company will be responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the 700-mw project.

But it is ironical that the company has been debarred by the World Bank. On February 22, 2012, the World Bank had said: “The World Bank group today announced the debarment of Alstom Hydro France and Alstom Network Schweiz AG (Switzerland)—in addition to their affiliates—for a period of three years following Alstom’s acknowledgment of misconduct in relation to a bank-financed hydropower project.”
