NTPCThe second phase of the NTPC-Simhadri power plant at Parawada will be partly completed by the end of the financial year, with the commissioning of the third unit (500 MW). According to Mr Ambarish N Dave regional executive director, the second phase consisted of setting up two more units of 500 MW apiece, in addition to the two existing units of 500 MW each in operation, at a cost of INR 5,000 crore.

He said that "The expansion project is running smoothly and there are no time overruns or cost overruns. The third unit will be commissioned during the current financial year and the fourth one during the next." He added that after completion of the second phase, the total capacity of Simhadri would rise to 2,000 MW from the present 1,000 MW.

He said that Andhra Pradesh would get about 35% of the additional capacity (1,000 MW). There was no problem with the coal linkage for the expanded capacity and, if necessary, the government had authorized NTPC to import coal.

Mr Dave said that in association with the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board, NTPC had taken up a thermal project at Vallur, with two units (500 MW apiece) being set up in the first phase and one (500 MW) in the second. This project was in execution.

NTPC was also taking up a new project at Kudgi in Bijapur district of Karnataka, with three units of 800 MW apiece in the first phase and two of 800 MW apiece in the second. A wind energy project (500 MW) was also being taken up in Bagalkot district in that State, he added.
