Hyderabad: The first 800 MW Unit of phase 1 of the Telangana Super Thermal Power Project of NTPC has been installed in the Peddapalli district.

The project inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will provide low-cost power to Telangana.

“Smooth supply of electricity gives momentum to the growth of industries in a state,” the Prime Minister remarked.

He emphasised that the second unit of the project will also be operational very soon, and upon its completion, the installed capacity of the power plant would rise to 4,000 MW.

The Telangana Super Thermal Power Plant is the most modern power plant out of all NTPC power plants in the country.

Phase I of Telangana Super Thermal Power Project of NTPC is being established at an approved cost of Rs 10,998 crore on the available land in the premises of NTPC’s existing Ramagundam station in Peddapalli district.

It will supply 85% of its power to the state of Telangana.

Being a pit-head power station with ultra supercritical technology, this project will also help the state of Telangana with low-cost power.

Further, this being the most efficient power station of NTPC in India, this will reduce specific coal consumption (Total consumption of coal per unit of power generated) and CO2 emissions, making it one of the most environmentally compliant power stations in India.

With commissioning of the 1st unit of the project, the power supply scenario has improved in the state of Telangana as well as in the country. This project will help in strengthening the overall economic growth in the region.

NTPC Ltd. is India's largest integrated power utility, contributing 1/4th of the power requirement of the country.

With an installed capacity of more than 73 GW and a diverse portfolio of thermal, hydro, solar, and wind power plants, NTPC is dedicated to delivering reliable, affordable, and sustainable electricity to the nation.

The company is committed to adopting best practices, fostering innovation, and embracing clean energy technologies for a greener future.
