R-LNG to power defunct Ennore thermal station

Tangedco will construct gas-fired power plants after removing the defunct Ennore Thermal Power Station's assets, supplies, and machinery.

An official told TIE that Tangedco wanted to implement re-gasified liquefied natural gas (R-LNG) power projects with lesser capacities, ranging from 18 to 20 MW, totaling 2,000 MW, as part of the zero-carbon strategy.

The government instructed Tangedco to move the project to the site of the abandoned thermal power station in Ennore after the state-owned utility initially chose to build a plant in Basin Bridge. After a consultant completed a feasibility study and presented a report, Tangedco advertised tenders, but there were not many takers.

The electricity utility reissued the tender a few weeks ago, and bidders have until Thursday to submit their applications. The winning bidder must have worked on a single contract with Tangedco or another state energy board or power utilities within the previous 15 years to remove scrap, including structures and buildings, for a value of not less than 230 million.

Because there were not many bidders, the utility wasn't happy with the prices offered. The officials do anticipate that construction on the gas-fired power plant will start before the end of the current fiscal year. Through S Guruvanmikanathan
