Jaypee Nigrie Super Thermal Power Project comprising 2 x 660 MW Super-critical Unit will be set up by JPVL at a site in Nigrie - Village, Tehsil - Deosar, District - Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh. The expected date of commissioning for Unit - I and Unit - II are end April 2013 and end October 2013 respectively.
The Nigrie Thermal Project is expected to utilize coal from two captive coal blocks, the Amelia (North) and Dongri Tal – II coal block with total coal reserves of 250 MT of coal. These coal blocks contain sufficient coal reserves to fuel the Nigrie Thermal project over the long term. JAL is expected to develop and mine this coal in a joint venture with MPSMCL. The joint venture has been allotted these two coal blocks solely for the purpose of supplying fuel to the Nigrie Thermal Project.
The main features of the Project are:
Super critical boiler technology will achieve an unprecedented net efficiency level for brown coal power stations. This technology’s higher steam temperatures and pressure parameters offer the most economical way to improve plant efficiency and operating flexibility – as well as achieve fuel cost savings and lower emissions for each KWH of electricity
Improved thermal efficiency
Lower emissions levels
- Lower operating costs
- Greater operating flexibilty
- Reduced fuel consumption
- Reduced fuel cost
- Reduced ash generation
Reduction of carbon dioxide emission due to less consumption of fuel
Very good part load efficiency as compared to sub-critical unit
Reduced NOx,Sox and SPM emission
