Power generation clocks 5.55% growth in FY 2010-11

A cumulative growth of 5.55% in energy generation has been recorded during the financial year 2010-11. As compared to an actual generation of 768.42 billion units (BU) registered during the year 2009-10, around 811.14 BU has been generated during 2010-11.

As per the electrical energy generation data released by the Central Electricity Authority
(CEA), the actual generation, however, is slightly lower than the target of 830.8 BU for the period,
According to CEA, thermal power generation exhibited a growth rate of 3.81%, against the corresponding figure of 2009-10. Further, the nuclear generation achieved a remarkable growth rate of 41.04%, mainly due to improved availability of nuclear fuel to various nuclear plants. Additionally, due to revival of monsoons after two successive years of scanty rainfall conditions, generation from hydro based plants recorded a growth rate of about 10.01%.

Furthermore, imports from Bhutan also exhibited a growth of 4.69%.
During the same period, against a cumulative import target of 6.54 BU, 5.61 BU or 85.68%, was actually wheeled from the eastern-neighboring kingdom.

19 coal-based TPS clock 90%+ PLF during FY 2010-11

The Central Electricity Authority (CEA) has released a list of coal-based thermal power stations (TPS), for the period April 2010-March 2011, with a plant load factor (PLF) more than 90%. Out of the 19 TPSs, that have exhibited a PLF of 90% or more and have a cumulative capacity of 21,995 MW, 11 are run by central public sector undertakings (CPSU), 3 are run by state PSUs and the remaining 5 are privately-owned.

Remarkably, 500 MW Dahanu TPS has attained the highest PLF of 101.00%. However, 1,240 MW Kota TPS and 2,600 MW Ramagundem super critical thermal power station (STPS) have achieved a PLF of 91.04% and 90.27%, respectively, ostensibly the worst performers among these 19.

Pertinently, during the year 2010-11, NTPC Limited's 3,260 MW Vindhyachal, 2,600 MW Korba, 1,050 MW Unchahar and 2,000 MW Rihand STPSs recorded PLFs of 94.58%, 93.29%, 93.26% and 93.15%, respectively.
