State-run power giant NTPC said it has commissioned India's first ultra supercritical unit having a capacity of 660 MW at Khargone in Madhya Pradesh.
This plant operates at an efficiency of 41.5 per cent, which is 3.3 per cent higher than the conventional supercritical ones, with steam parameters of 600 degree Celsius temperatures and 270 kg/cm2 pressure, a company statement said.
The high efficiency will result in less coal consumption for generating same amount of electricity vis-a-vis supercritical plants and will result in reduction of 3.3 per cent carbon dioxide emissions, the statement said.
The Khargone plant will have a total capacity of 1,320 MW, two units of 660 MW each. The required facilities for sustainable running of the plant like fuel handling and transportation systems are ready and the plant will start commercial operation very soon, the company said.
