NTPCIn its endeavor to become a 75,000 MW company by 2017, the state owned NTPC has set up a centre to monitor all ongoing projects on a real time basis to ensure there is no cost and time overruns. The company is currently working on 18 projects to add about 17,000 generation capacity.

The PMC has provisions for online monitoring of project wise and vendor wise issues, enterprise wide issue tracking and real time site monitoring through remote cameras."

He said that NTPC has also developed web based monitoring system and given access to external stakeholders including Ministry of Power, Central Electricity Authority and others to get updated status of the projects.

NTPC officials working on the PMC said that the schedule and anticipated/actual dates of key milestones identified by CEA are available online for the ongoing projects adding that status of clearances/activities for new projects is available on the new projects dashboard.

Asked about investment and technology partners for setting up the PMC, the officials said the monitoring centre has been set up with indigenous technology and at an investment of about INR 6 crore.

High resolution cameras have been installed at important locations like TG floor, Bunker area, Boiler to capture and store on line video from construction site for better appreciation of site conditions and facilitate on spot decisions.
