Of the current installed capacity of 188 GW coming from the coal based thermal power plants, it is anticipated (arguable) 40-50 GW shall meet up their useful plant life criterion shortly or certainly exceed 20 years of their operation. With, such capacities functional at lower efficiencies it is pertinent to replace the same with modernized infrastructure with super critical units. Recognizing this, one of the India’s largest thermal power generator NTPC limited has already announced a plan of replacing 11000 MW of aging capacity through super critical units.
Hence, this development demands an in-depth and holistic study which shall be unfolded in our latest research to demystify the potential involved around the modernization of coal based thermal power plants in short, medium and long term basis. We shall conduct in-depth primary research well supported model based analysis to project the “MW” tune in which the modernization and capacity expansion will be a reality by both 2022 in mid – term and 2030 by long term.
