The 13th International Summit of Power India 2011 was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon in Mumbai. The three-day conference was organised by India-Tech Foundation with the support of concerned ministries of the government. The theme for this year's conference was 'Tech-Innovation for accelerated development of a sustainable power sector'. Indra Mohan, President, India-Tech Foundation, welcomed the audience on day one of the conference and the keynote address was delivered by Dr Pramod Deo, Chairman, Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) and Dr RP Singh, Executive Vice Chairman, Jindal Power. Other dignitaries at the event were Justice AM Ahmadi, (Former Chief Justice of India), Chairman, Jury Panel- India-Tech Excellence Awards, V Ranganathan, (Former Chief Secretary, Maharashtra) and VK Pandit, Former Secretary-Power, Convener, Power India 2011.On day one the first session was based on the theme of 'Thermal Power - Projections & Challenges'. The first presentation based on the topic of 'Challenges for NTPC in achieving 12th Plan targets' was made by AK Sinha, GM, Project Engineering, NTPC. Speaking of the advantages of coastal thermal power plants he said, "With minor changes in coastal regulations we can have plants at the seashore and you will have abundant sea water available for cooling. So the cooling problem is solved. Then the transportation problem too is solved to a large extent if you can provide a jetty or have a port there, which will facilitate movement of coal and heavy engineering equipment. Just by opting for an open cycle sea water cooling system, you can improve the heat rate by about 31 kilo calories per kw/hour which amounts to about 40,000 tonne reduction in CO2 emissions for a typical 500 MW unit. This improvement is more or less the same kind of improvement that you get by using subcritical to supercritical plant -supercritical is about 40 kilo calories."In his presentation on 'Challenges for MAHAGENCO to meet the ever-growing electricity demand of Maharashtra', C S Thotwe, Director-Projects, Mahagenco said, "Our boilers were designed more than 30 years ago. The coal which was available then was of a better quality as compared to the coal available today. At that time while designing the boiler, the coal CV was assumed to be 4,000 plus and now the CV is 3,200 plus. So this gap between 3,200 and 4,000 creates constraints in operation of coal plants. So this is a major challenge for Mahagenco to cope with the shortfall of CVs." Pramod Deo summed up the theme of the conference by speaking about the issues that plagued the power sector and suggested the way ahead.
