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.

Dismantling business in India augurs well for the service providers in the current pretext wherein about half of the country’s thermal power plants are aging and exceed 25 years of useful plant life. This means collectively almost 30% of the country’s installed capacity is up for dismantling and a good proportion of these power plants are fast approaching 40 years beyond which operating such power plants would not make any business case for the operators. Infact, 188 thermal power plants of the total 396 thermal power plants in the country are more than 25 years old. The business case for such power plants to be dismantled arises due to the fact that the efficiency of such power plants decrease in the levels of close to 40% of their prime operations.

Business Case In Decommissioning Thermal Power Units

  • Government of India planning to replace old 25-40 GW coal power plants with new supercritical ones , which likely to pool opportunity of INR 1.6 Trillion
  • Ageing thermal power plants in India could mean good times for companies in the dismantling business
  • 11GW of existing old thermal capacity proposed for replacement , with an anticipated business case of close to USD 9.8 Billion
  • Of the total installed coal fired capacity of about 194 GW , ~ 58 GW is from the plants that are operational for more than 25 years and shall seek replacement soon , hence a clear cut business case of more than USD 50 Billion exists if all the 58 GW is proposed for getting decommissioned
  • Power plant developers are focusing on selling their defunct units and scrap at a competitive price and that too in short span of time
