NTPC , India's largest power company, has been ranked 424th among the world's 2,000 largest and most powerful public companies.
With an installed capacity of 43,039 MW through 16 coal-based, 7 gas-based, 7 solar renewable and 7 joint venture power stations, NTPC contributes approximately 28 per cent of electricity in the country, with about 19 per cent of India's installed capacity.
Past performance In FY13, NTPC has awarded work for 8,521 MW capacity. Its award of main plant was for 12,540 MW capacity during the last 3 years including commencement of bulk tender projects with unit sizes of 660 MW and 800 MW. The value of total packages awarded in the last three years was Rs 68,824 crore (including about Rs 14,500 crore on behalf of JVs).
Key achievements Year wise capacity expenditure of NTPC has nearly doubled from the level of about Rs 10,500 crore in 2009-10 to about Rs 20,000 crore in 2012-13. It also notched up a record capex of Rs 19,926 crore (standalone) during financial year 2012-13 compared to Rs 15,994 crore during financial year 2011-12, an increase of 25 per cent. This was 95 per cent of the capex target of Rs 20,995 crore.
Long term plan The Maharatna has drawn up a long-term plan to become a 128,000 MW company in terms of installed capacity by the year 2032, with 28 per cent coming from non- fossil fuel sources such as renewable, hydro and nuclear. During the last three years, NTPC has been able to achieve its highest ever capacity addition. During financial year 2012- 13, 4,170 MW was added against 2,820 MW in financial year 2011-12, and 2,490 MW in financial year 2010-11. As on date, capacity of 20,564 MW is under construction.
Coal mining The Government of India has allocated four more coal mines to NTPC namely Banai, Bhalumunda, Chandrabila and Kudanali Laburi with geological reserves of 1,995 MT production potential and production potential of more than 42.5 MT per annum. With these mines, the total coal reserves of NTPC mines now amount to 5.7 billion tonnes with annual mining potential of 100 mtpa. MDOs have been appointed for Pakri Barwadih with 15 mtpa capacity and Chatti-Bariatu with 7 mtpa capacity. Award for CHP of Pakri-Barwadih was also placed.
Coal supply Coal Supply Agreements (CSA) have been signed with CIL for units commissioned after 31.03.2009 for 14,000 MW capacity. It has also signed a pioneering tripartite agreement with the Inland Waterways Authority of India and a private developer for transporting 3 mtpa imported coal through inland waterways to NTPC Farakka, earning encomiums from the PMO. This will reduce dependence on the Railways which is already constrained in transporting coal. Beginning with direct import of 4 mmt of coal with over 20 per cent savings compared to earlier coal supply agreements, it has so far imported 16 mmt of coal with substantial savings.
CSR footprint As far as CSR is concerned, NTPC will focus on long-term projects to improve social indicators in education, health, income generation, drinking water, among others, in line with millennium development goals. Some of the long-term signature programmes that the company has envisaged are 'health on wheels' - Mobile Health Clinics - to improve health and hygiene indicators, solar- powered electricity and drinking water in neighbourhood schools, and adoption of meritorious students up to graduation.
A quick take According to Arup Roy Choudhury, Chairman, 90 per cent of operations in the power sector today are not properly regulated. Except for the Central generation companies and the CERC, there is not enough transparency where every piece of document is available online for analysis.
