PM Lays Foundation Stone for 2400 MW Phase-I of NTPC’s Patratu Power Plant in Jharkhand

This project is a Joint Venture (JV) in the ratio of 74:26 between Government of Jharkhand (GoJ) and Patratu Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd (PVUNL), a NTPC’s subsidiary establishing a total capacity expansion of 4,000 MW.

Envisioning the brighter future for India’s 19th state, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid the foundation stone for the 2,400 MW first phase of NTPC’s Patratu Super Thermal Power Project in Jharkhand.

This project is a Joint Venture (JV) in the ratio of 74:26 between Government of Jharkhand (GoJ) and Patratu Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd (PVUNL), a NTPC’s subsidiary establishing a total capacity expansion of 4,000 MW.

On this occasion, eminent dignitaries from the Jharkhand state and senior officials from Power Ministry and NTPC were present.

The company’s PVUNL is set to develop the project in two phases i.e. 2,400 MW (3×800 MW) in Phase-I and 1,600 MW (2×800 MW) in Phase-II, which will be developed later.

This project will allocate 85 per cent of the power to Jharkhand that will benefit the state in the long run and help in the economic growth of the region.

Under the Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana (Saubhagya) scheme, this project will ensure providing 24×7 power availability to the households.

The project has salient features of Dry Ash disposable system (second to NTPC Dadri), zero liquid discharge system, Air-cooled condenser technology (only second to North Karanpura STPP) and rail loading facility for transportation of ash.

The project further complies with the new emission norms with high efficiency ESP, FGD and Nox emission control systems as well.

Meanwhile, the Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) contract of the project has been awarded to BHEL and the commissioning of the first unit is envisaged in 2022 and subsequently the other two units after an interval of six months each from the preceding unit.
