Power 20 - 20 | NTPC

Highest growth generation company in the last year (public company - thermal power) : National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC)

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.

Key Success Factors

  • 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 three 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.
  • Capacity expenditure: 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.
  • 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.
  • Fuel supply: Coal Supply Agreements (CSAs) signed with CIL for units commissioned after 31st March 2009 for 14,000 MW capacity. With this, a long-term coal supply agreement has been signed for the entire coal-based generation 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. A similar arrangement is under process for Barh. 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.
