NTPC, a Maharatna, has drawn up a long-term plan to become a 128,000 MW company in terms of installed capacity by the year 2032. It has made the single largest thermal capacity addition in the country during the first two years of the 12th Plan.
NTPC is the largest power generator in India with installed capacity at 41.7 GW and it contributes 30 per cent of total electricity generation in India. It aims to add 14 GW in the 12th Plan compared to the 9 GW addition in the 11th Plan period. It has also ventured into related areas like coal mining, distribution, transmission, and gas exploration.
Key success factors:
Taking a note of decreasing coal prices internationally, NTPC is exploring the possibility of strategic acquisitions. K Biswal, Director (Finance), NTPC says, ´We have issued NIT on September 26, 2014 inviting proposals for strategic acquisition of stake in coal mines outside India. Currently, the bids are under evaluation.´
Speaking about capex plans, Biswal told Power Today that as against the capex outlay target of Rs 22,400 crore in FY2014-15, till September 2014, the company incurred a capex of Rs 8,137.91 crore. The corresponding amount in the first half of FY2013-14 was Rs 5,164.21 crore, thus resulting in an increase of 58 per cent. The capex by other group companies has been Rs 1,767.06 crore in H1 FY2014-15. The group capex in H1 FY2014-15 was Rs 9,904.97 crore.
Capacity addition targets for FY 2014-15 remains at 1,800 MW. In addition, boiler light-up at 660 MW unit of Barh-II has been completed, oil-flushing work is under progress and unit is expected to synchronise by the end of the 3rd quarter. Boiler light-up work at 250 MW units at Bongaigaon will commence soon.
