The work on the 4,000 MW dedicated power project for Telangana being set up by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) at Ramagundam in Karimnagar district has gained momentum with tying up of 4.73 TMC ft water per annum from Sripada Yellampally project.
The national power giant has commenced work on the 2 x 800 MW first-stage of the project by calling tenders for supply of material.
It has secured environmental clearance from the ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) for the project. The project is coming up in the land bank already available with the NTPC at Ramagundam, where it already has a 2,600 MW inter-State generating station (ISGS).
The Telangana government has issued orders allocating 2.73 TMC ft of water per annum from Sripada Yellampally project for the 3 x 800 MW second-stage of the thermal power project.
The power project is envisaged to make dedicated supply of energy to Telangana, as promised in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act (APRA).
The State Government has sanctioned supply of 60 cusecs (2 TMC ft) of water throughout the year from Sripada Yellampally project to the 2 x 800 MW stage-one of the project in March this year.
Another request was made by NTPC to the state government in August this year to allocate an additional 90 cusecs (2.73 TMC ft) of water from Yellampally for the 3 x 800 MW second-stage of the proposed power project.
Meanwhile, the Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL), which is executing the thermal power plant has also called tenders for supply of material for the project. The land levelling work at the project site in Dameracherla mandal in Nalgonda district is already in progress.
