Decommissioning Thermal Power Plants in India Evaluating New Industry Segment & Estimating USD 5 Billion Opportunity
the coal requirement in order to continue generation for such plants increases by huge quantum which means the cost of operations being on rise consistently and the return is limited. This means dismantling such power plants and utilizing the same land area for creating fresh capacities by utilizing super critical/ultra-super critical technology would make more sense in order to support less polluting thermal generation with better efficiencies. Facilitating decommissioning services requires in depth acumen which is quintessential to firstly dismantle the thermal power plants and secondly utilizing the defunct units scrap to obtain the salvage value. This in itself will open up a new industry segment in the country which demands better understanding of the opportunities involved and a yard stick to measure them on both , integrated basis as well as on bifurcated terms across for each state.
By 2020 enincon believes that thermal power is destined to roll back into generation mix of the country and in all possibilities fresh UMPPs which have hit a road block may witness announcements sooner than later. Hence, preparedness for OEMs shall be of pinnacle importance which will be discovered through an in-depth research in this dossier. Queries like what be the region wise business case for BoP players, opportunity in terms of replacing the old thermal units, futuristic market size for BoP package wise OEMs and many more apart from the mentioned will find answers in this collective and holistic market research.
With fresh order due to come only from CPSUs or the respective SEBs, the opportunity stands limited for the key value chain players. Following this scenario, modernizing the infrastructure, presence huge opportunity even if we consider 11 GW out of 40 GW of capacity. However, challenges are intermittent like land area availability and inclusive R&R implications , the capex in modernization , potential fuel supply security and obviously the power off take.
