NTPC has announced that it has commissioned the country’s first ultra-super critical unit of 660 MW capacity at Khargone in Madhya Pradesh.
The plant will have a total capacity of 1,320 megawatt (MW) two units of 660 MW each.
"The required facilities for sustainable running of the plant like fuel handling and transportation systems are ready and the plant will start commercial operation very soon," NTPC said in its press release.
The Khargone plant operates at an efficiency of 41.5 per cent, which is 3.3 per cent higher than the conventional super-critical ones, with steam parameters of 600 degree Celsius temperatures and 270 kg per centimeter square pressure.
