Tangedco conducts study to build gas turbine plants in North Chennai

In order to build gas turbine power plants capable of producing 2,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity in North Chennai, Tangedco has started a feasibility study. The infrastructure of the natural gas pipeline system that runs from Ennore to Thoothukudi was to be utilised in the proposal to build gas turbine stations. After V Senthilbalaji, Power Minister, made this announcement in the Assembly, the study is being pursued.

Although gas was expensive at the time, the power company proposed installing gas-powered plants as part of its strategy to produce sustainable energy. It will utilise both the Indian Oil gas pipeline infrastructure facility and the empty site in Ennore where the previous thermal plants were housed.

The study entails building small gas engine power plants with a combined capacity of 2,000 MW and a capacity of 18 MW to 20 MW.

A consultant has been hired by Tangedco to conduct a feasibility study, on the basis of which a detailed project report (DPR) would be prepared.

The engineering consultant will cover the details of re-engineering the Basin Bridge gas project, which has remained closed owing to raw material, which became pricey, even though the consultant was involved in doing the feasibility study for building up new gas power plants.

Tangedco, which operates a 120 MW gas turbine power station at Basin Bridge, intends to redesign the facility to use liquefied natural gas (LNG), which would enable power to be produced at a lower variable cost.
