RECORDS OF EXCELLENCE :

Kota Super Thermal Power Station is reckoned as one of the best, efficient and prestigious power station of the country. KSTPS has established a record of excellence and has earned meritorious productivity awards from the Ministry of Power, Govt. of India during 1984, 1987, 1989, 1991 and every year since 1992-93 onwards.

 

KSTPS has earned golden shield award from Union Ministry of Power for Consistent outstanding performance during 2000-01 to 2003-04. The Golden Shield was presented by Hon’ble President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on 24.8.04.

 

KSTPS has achieved the distinction of about 100% fly ash utilization during the year 2010-11. An all time high generation level of 9891 MU at an annual PLF of 91.06% was achieved during 2010-11. The achievements made by KTPS during 2010-11 are as under:-

Further, it is worthwhile to mention that KTPS managed efficient unloading of coal rakes within the duration as prescribed by the Railways and there by achieved unloading of about 155 coal rakes without any demurrage charges since 19th April 2010. Though KTPS Units 1 to 4 are very old (110 MW Unit No. 1 & 2 being 27 years old & 210 MW Units No. 3 & 4 being 21 years old), the station performance is consistently well above the National average as depicted in the operational parameters for last 5 years as under:-

ENVIRONMENTAL PROFILE :

Ø adequate measures have been taken at ktps to control pollution and comply to the norms laid by environment protection act. 1986. being a power station, located in the heart of kota city, continuous efforts are made to ensure atmospheric emission of suspended particulate matter within the prescribed limits.

Ø 180 meter high stacks have been provided to release flue gases into the atmosphere at an approx. velocity of 25 m/sec. so as to disperse the emitted particulate matter over a wide spread area.

Ø the on-line stack spm monitoring system of codel germany has been installed as per requirement of central pollution control board.

Ø microprocessor based intelligent controllers to optimize the esp of 99.82% efficiency have been provided. esps of 110 mw units # 1 & 2 were augmented under r&m scheme with installation of 7 additional field to enhance efficiency upto 99.82%. dummy fields provided in esp of 210 mw units # 3 & 4 were also filled in with installation of 7th field as such the efficiency has increased upto 99.84%.

Ø adequate water spraying arrangements have been provided at coal unloading, transfer and conveying system to arrest and restrict fugitive emission. the system is now further upgraded with latest technology.

Ø development of green belt, about 3 lakhs plants of various species have already been planted in kstps and ash dyke. the survival rate of plants is watched periodically.

*existing green cover area within plant - 90 hect.

*existing green cover area within ash dyke - 100 hect.

Ø regular monitoring of stack emission, ambient air quality and trade effluent is carried out.

Ø all the drains in the esp area and boiler area have been diverted to dedicated tanks and the effluent collected is utilized for transportation of bottom ash disposal of the various units.

ASH UTILIZATION

FLY ASH :

In compliance to Govt. of India Gazette Notification issued on 14th Sept. 1999 for making available ash free of cost ,KSTPS has achieved 100% Dry Fly ash utilization. KSTPS signed agreements for dedicated generating units allocations including Construction & Operation of complete dry fly ash evacuation system from each unit in two phases i.e. from ESP to Intermediate Silo and Intermediate Silo to Main Supply Silo near KSTPS boundary with following cement manufacturing companies -

• Unit # 1&2 - M/s. Associated Cement Co. Ltd.

• Unit # 3 - M/s. Birla Cement Works Ltd.

• Unit # 4 - M/s. Grasim Industries Ltd.

• Unit # 5 - M/s. Grasim Industries Ltd

         

• Unit # 6 - M/s. Mangalam Cement Ltd.

         

• Unit # 6 - M/s. Shree Cement Ltd.

         

• Unit # 7(50% each) - M/s. Grasim Industries & M/s. Shree Cement Ltd.

         

POND ASH :

         

Concerted efforts have been made towards utilization of disposed fly & bottom ash accumulated in KSTPS ash dykes. The ash is provided free of cost and has been utilized by various small entrepreneurs i.e. Brick-kiln industries, small fly ash product industries, Cement manufacturing Industries and for land filling by National Highway Authority of India in construction of NH-12 and NH-76.
