Plan to set up power plant in Greater Noida
Virendra Nath Bhatt

The Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC)
plans to set up a 1,000 MW gas-based power project in Greater Noida.
The state only stands to gain from the project as it will have no
financial participation in the project and will also get 50 per cent
of the total power generated by the plant. The cost of the project is
pegged at nearly Rs 3,800 crore and land for the project has already
been identified.

The state government has accorded its in-principle approval to the
project, provided the plant feeds the entire energy requirement of
industries in Noida, Greater Noida and areas around the Yamuna
Expressway.

The DMICDC has agreed to share 50 per cent of the total power
generated with UP and the rest will be sold through the open access
regime.

In its proposal to UP, the DMICDC has indicated that the proposed gas-
based plant is situated close to the existing Hajira-Bijapur-
Jagdishpur (HBJ) gas pipeline and the under-construction Dadri-Bawana-
Nangal gas pipeline.

The state government has already granted in-principle approval to the
project, but we have suggested the DMICDC to use coal as fuel instead
of gas to check cost. We are awaiting the DMICDC’s response to our
suggestion,” said S K Agarwal, director finance, UPPCL.

The Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd (UPPCL) had earlier this week
placed the proposal before the Energy Task Force (ETF) headed by

UP Chief Secretary Atul Gupta. The decision has, however, been
deferred and DMICDC has been asked to consider the change of fuel from
gas to coal.

The DMICDC has already conducted a pre-feasibility report of the plant
site. The report has been accepted by the UP government.

The report says, “Nearly 560 acres owned by the Cane Cooperative
Society, Jhangirpur, is available. The land is well connected with
road and rail network. The water requirement of the plant, estimated
to be 22 cusecs, can also be obtained from the Upper Ganges canal
flowing 4 km from the plant site.”

The DMICDC need only 250 acres for the power plant and has requested
the UP government to transfer the said land on a long term lease.

Three major power plants for Greater Noida
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Lucknow, Feb 28 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to set
up three mega power plants in the Noida and Greater Noida areas to
meet the increasing demand of power in the fast-growing region.
Each of these plants is proposed to be of 1,000-1,300 MW capacity.
'Huge plots of land have been identified for the purpose in
Jehangirpur, Chola and along the Yamuna Expressway in Greater Noida,'
Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation chairman Navneet Sehgal told IANS here
Sunday.
He was of the view that each of the plants, proposed to be set up
under a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement, would require
about 250 acres of land.
A proposal in this regard has already been made to the Delhi-Mumbai
Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) which has shown
keen interest in undertaking one of these projects at Jehangirpur
village.
'However, DMICDC was inclined to set up a gas-based plant, which may
not be cost- effective as it would entail a production cost of about
Rs.7 per unit; therefore, we have asked them to consider a thermal
power plant instead,' disclosed Sehgal.
Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation has set up a subsidiary
in collaboration with the Great NOIDA authority and Yamuna Expressway
Authority for setting up the Chola project in Bulandshahr district.
'As per our arrangement, each of the proposed power plants would have
to reserve 50 percent of their production for the Uttar Pradesh Power
Corporation, while they would be free to distribute the rest under the
'open access regime' to anyone,' Sehgal said.
Hoping to have the proposed plants in place before the end of 2014, he
was confident of augmenting Uttar Pradesh's power generation to 25,000
MW by then. 'The proposed projects would be undertaken latest by 2012
so that we could achieve our target of making Uttar Pradesh an energy
surplus state by 2017,' he pointed out.

ग्रेटर नोएडा।। नोएडा-ग्रेटर नोएडा और यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे अथॉरिटी के नए
शहर में आने वाले दिनों में बिजली की किल्लत नहीं होगी। इसके लिए

तैयारी शुरू हो गई है। जहांगीरपुर, चोला और यमुना एक्सप्रेस वे के किनारे
तीन पावर प्लांट लगाए जाएंगे। तीनों प्लांट्स की क्षमता 1000 से 1300
मेगावाट होगी। अभी नोएडा और ग्रेटर नोएडा में कुल एक हजार मेगावाट बिजली
की ही खपत है।

यूपीपीसीएल के चेयरमैन नवनीत सहगल ने बताया कि इसके लिए जहांगीरपुर, चोला
और यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे के किनारे जगह की पहचान कर ली गई है। ये तीनों
प्लांट पब्लिक-प्राइवेट पार्टनरशिप मॉडल पर बनेंगे। जहांगीरपुर में बनने
वाली बिजली को नोएडा और ग्रेटर नोएडा के अलावा यूपी के अन्य हिस्सों के
लिए भी दिया जाएगा। अपनी जरूरतें पूरी करने के बाद शेष बिजली दिल्ली को
दी जाएगी। इसके अलावा एक हजार मेगावाट क्षमता का ही दूसरा प्लांट चोला
में लगेगा।

यह दिल्ली-मुंबई इंडस्ट्रियल कॉरिडोर ऑफ डिवेलपमेंट कॉर्पोरेशन
(डीएमआईसीडीसी) के 11 अर्ली बर्ड प्रोजेक्ट्स में भी शामिल है। इसी के
तहत यहां पावर प्लांट लगाया जाना है। शासन ने इसके प्रस्ताव को भी पास कर
दिया है। तीसरा प्रोजेक्ट यमुना एक्सप्रेस वे के किनारे किसी भी स्थान पर
लगाने की योजना बनाई गई है। इसकी क्षमता भी एक हजार मेगावाट होगी। इसके
बाद नोएडा, ग्रेटर नोएडा और यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे आगरा तक जगमगा उठेगा.
