Further, NTPC is developing the Talcher Thermal Power Project, Stage III, within the old TTPS plant premises in the Angul district of Odisha, which was taken over by NTPC from the Odisha State Electricity Board in 1995. The old TTPS plant was decommissioned after completing more than 50 years of service to the nation.

Bengaluru, February 1, 2024: The Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation the NTPC Darlipali Super Thermal Power Station (2×800 MW), the NSPCL Rourkela PP-II Expansion Project (1×250 MW), and lay the foundation stone for the NTPC Talcher Thermal Power Project, Stage-III (2×660 MW), with a total investment of Rs 28,978 crore, during a programme at Sambalpur on February 3, 2024.

Located in the Sundargarh district of Odisha, Darlipali STPP is a pit-head power station with supercritical (highly efficient) technology and is supplying low-cost power to its beneficiary states, such as Odisha, Bihar, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Gujarat, and Sikkim.

The 250 MW project of NTPC-SAIL Power Company Ltd. is established at Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) to provide reliable power for the steel plant, which is vital for economic growth.

Further, NTPC is developing the Talcher Thermal Power Project, Stage III, within the old TTPS plant premises in the Angul district of Odisha, which was taken over by NTPC from the Odisha State Electricity Board in 1995. The old TTPS plant was decommissioned after completing more than 50 years of service to the nation.

The upcoming plant will have highly efficient, ultra-critical technology-based units and approximately three times the capacity of the old TTPS plant. While 50% of the capacity from this project is dedicated to the state of Odisha, other beneficiary states such as Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Assam will also get low-cost power from this pit-head station.

This project is being constructed with all modern environmental features, like an efficient electrostatic precipitator, flue gas desulphurization, biomass cofiring, and covered storage space for coal, which will thus help in reducing specific coal consumption and CO2 emissions.

Besides creating direct and indirect employment opportunities in the region, these projects have contributed to the improvement of physical infrastructure such as approach roads, drainage, transportation, and communication facilities. Various community development initiatives are also being undertaken by NTPC in the surrounding villages in the areas of education, drinking water, sanitation, health, women’s empowerment, rural sports, etc. NTPC has also set up a medical college hospital in Sundargarh, Odisha.
