PatratuPrime Minister Narendra Modi on May 25 laid the foundation stone of the first phase of 2,400 Megawatt (Mw) capacity of NTPC's Patratu Super Thermal Power Project in Ramgarh district, Jharkhand.

A senior NTPC executive said the first phase of the project will be set up at an estimated cost of around Rs 18,000 crore. The Patratu project is a Joint Venture with 74 per cent stake of the Jharkhand government and Patratu Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd’s 26 per cent stake. PVUNL is a subsidiary of NTPC.

Jharkhand Governor Droupadi Murmu, Chief Minister Raghubar Das, Union power minister R K Singh were among those present on the occasion.

PVUNL plans to develop the project in two phases with 2,400 MW capacity including three units of 800 MW capacity each to be commissioned in Phase-I and 1,600 MW with two units of 800 MW capacity each in Phase-II.

The project will allocate 85 per cent of the power generated to Jharkhand. The project will be equipped with Dry Ash disposable system, zero liquid discharge system, air-cooled condenser technology and rail loading facility for transportation of ash.

The plant also complies with the new emission norms with high-efficiency electrostatic precipitator (ESP), Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) and Nox emission control systems, the company said.

NTPC has awarded the Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) contract of the project to Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL). Its first unit is expected to be commissioned in 2022. The other two units will be commissioned later within a year.
