India's biggest utility NTPC Ltd is ramping up coal output from its mines and importing 270,000 tonnes of the fossil fuel under existing contracts, as it seeks to boost stocks at its plants and meet rising electricity demand. India's power demand has rebounded in recent months, reflecting an increase in economic activity as COVID-19 restrictions are eased. The increased consumption coincided with the monsoon season, when rains affected coal supplies.
India's largest electricity generator NTPC Ltd said on Wednesday it would borrow 50 billion yen ($478 million) from Japanese banks to fund the installation of emission-cutting equipment and green energy projects. "The loan proceeds will be utilized by NTPC Ltd, the PSU under Ministry of Power, for funding its capex for Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) & Renewable Energy projects," government-run NTPC said in a statement. Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) units cut emissions of sulphur dioxides - which are linked to lung diseases and acid rain - from coal-fired power plants.
India's top power utility NTPC Ltd has sought bids for procuring biomass pellets to fuel its thermal power plants, the government statement said on Sunday, in an effort to cut down air pollution from burning of crop residue. The state-owned power producer aims to use 5 million tonnes of pellets, made from crop waste, to fuel 17 of its power plants in the current year, the statement said.
