TNEB offers consultancy service to offset 7000 crore loss

Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon
TNEBIn an effort to offset the Rs 7,000 crore monetary loss it has incurred, the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) has begun offering consultancy services to private firms and engineering colleges. It expects to garner Rs 20 crore annually this way. The TNEB, which has over 10,000 well-qualified engineers and accountants across the state, has decided to use their vast expertise profitably. The Board's project development and co-ordination team prepared a feasibility report for the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) project.

The TNEB will offer consultancy for private power producers, high tension and low tension industries, engineering colleges and other stake holders mainly in generation, distribution and transmission of power and in human resource development. It will also offer services in areas including power management, power system planning, preparing feasibility reports for new thermal projects, designing thermal power equipment, environmental management of thermal power stations, design and detailed engineering of structures including multi-storeyed buildings, bridges, project tender specifications and preparation, cost management and auditing.

"We will offer our expertise to engineering colleges as well. Our engineers will visit institutions that opt for our service and share their practical knowledge. The professors have a vast amount of theoretical knowledge but our engineers have vast experience, which would benefit the students immensely," said A Stephen, superintendent engineer of the project development and co-ordination team.

He said a company with Chinese collaboration recently approached the TNEB to prepare a report for setting up a thermal power station. "The usual practice is to approach a private consultant. But now we are offering to do it, " he said.

Stephen said this would be additional work for the TNEB engineers. "We are planning to pay them extra money. But it will be done only after the Board chairman gives the green signal," he said.

Stephen said the charges would include the number of manhours, official taxes, stationery cost and some profit percentage. "We will also be providing consultancy in human resource development work and research and development," he said.
