Turning bane into a boon: NTPC develops infrastructure to transport fly ash in bulk

Central PSU under the Ministry of Power NTPC Ltd has developed an infrastructure at Rihand project in Uttar Pradesh to transport fly ash in bulk to cement plants, located at distance, at a cheaper cost. The development is in line with NTPC's commitment towards 100 percent utilization of fly ash from power plants.

As per a statement issued by NTPC Ltd, the first rake of 59 BOXN types of railway wagons carrying 3450 Metric Tonne (MT) of fly ash was flagged off from NTPC’s Rihand Super Thermal Power station by Shri Balaji Iyengar, Executive Director (NTPC Rihand) for ACC Cement Manufacturing Plant, Tikaria, U.P. located at a distance of 458 km, in presence of other senior officials of NTPC Rihand.

To transfer the first tranche, officials from NTPC Rihand approached East Central Railway along with leading cement producers to commence the supply of fly ash in BOXN wagons covered with tarpaulin. The innovation will pave the way for efficient and safer transportation of fly ash from the power plants to cement production units located at a distance in larger quantities.

The effort marks the beginning of a new era for transportation of fly ash from a remote location to a consumption center, enabling power plants for upgrading the utilization of fly ash with the availability of additional material loading avenues for Indian Railways and accessibility of fly ash to the cement plants in an environment-friendly manner at a competitive price. During the financial year 2019-20, almost 44.33 million tonnes of fly ash were utilized for various productive purposes, being 73.31% of the ash generated.

PTC celebrated 20th Annual Day: Free power regime to go says Power Minister

By IndianMandarins 16 Jul 2019

Speaking on the 20th annual day celebration of the Power Trading Corporation (PTC), Union Power Minister (I/c) R K Singh, on Monday, said that the country was moving towards a new regime where a power consumer would pay first and then get power supplies. This would deal with the chronic and festering problem of dealing with the issue of nonpayment in the sector.

 

He made it clear that states can give free power to certain sections of the society but they would have to pay for it from their own budget.

 

He strongly condemned the prevailing notion and practice saying “there is no such thing as free power. Production of power involves huge investments’

 

He underlined the non-payment as one of the main reasons for the power sector stress which needs to be rectified at any cost. Without this, one cannot imagine a sustainable power regime which calls for an immediate connection between the payment and delivery. Many states would have to reconsider their stand.

 

Speaking on the occasion, PTC CMD Deepak Amitabh said the company has entered the 'adulthood' having completed the 'teenage' and the formative age spanning 19 years. Starting with a capital base of Rs five crores in 1999, it is now Rs 15,000 crores company.

 

And 'adulthood' has its own challenges. Since the country needs a judicious mix of power generated from various sources, the company has its task well cut out. Echoing the minister, he said the value of power has to be rationalized and pegged to the cost.
