NTPC to foray into cement making, fails to atract partners

TPC plans to foray into cement making on its own as it failed to attract any part- ner for the new venture which will help it utilise and monetise huge amounts of polluting ash generated by its coal-fired proj- ects. It was in the process of finalising a proposal that will allow it to source technology for cement manufacturing which will be put to use by NTPC engi- neers for setting up commercial cement production units. NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVNL), the subsidiary failed in find- ing joint-venture partners for the cement foray. It had invited expression of interest (EoI) for cement manufacturers in March this year to form a 26:74 joint venture to set up plants at its six
coal fired projects. The last date for EoI was extended twice in the absence of suitable partners. As per the plan, NTPC will set up small cement manufactur- ing units near all its coal-fired plants. Initially the proposal is to start the venture at the compa- ny’s coal-fired projects at Korba, Ramagundam, Dadri, Simahdri, Singrauli, Sipat, Vindhyachal, Badarpur, Barh, Rihand, Talcher- Kaniya and Bongaigaon. The 21 coal-fired power sta- tions of NTPC together produce close to 60 million tonne per annum of fly ash. Roughly half of this or about 28 mtpa of ash is safely utilised by the company through sale to cement units, mine filling, land development and exports.
Government of Japan in a phased manner to supplement the efforts of state governments in addressing the problem of pollution of river Yamuna. The works taken up under YAP include interception and diver- sion of raw sewage, setting up of sewage treatment plants, creation of low cost sanitation facilities, setting up of electric/ improved wood crematoria and river front development. The interceptor sewer project has recently been approved by CCEA under JNNURM at a cost of Rs. 1357 crore. These works are envisaged to be completed in a phased manner.
Essar to expand Vadinar oil refinery capacity
refinery in Jamnagar in Gujarat to a total of 20 million tonne per year (MTPA) by undertak- ing an optimisation project at an estimated cost of Rs 1,700 crore. The project will be com- pleted by September 2012.

ssar Oil has plans to enhance the capacity of its Vadinar
(Delayed Coker Unit). The refinery’s current name- plate capacity is 10.5 mtpa and it is consistently operating at a throughput of 14 mtpa, or three lakh barrels per stream day (bpsd). At present, it is imple- menting a project to expand this capacity to 18 MTPA (3.75 lakh bpsd), as part of the Phase- I expansion of the refinery. As of end-October, the Phase-I expan- sion was 72 per cent complete and is on track for mechanical completion by March 2011, with the exception of two units that are delayed by a quarter.
