Tata Power's Haldia Power Project achieves record operational excellence

Haldia (West Bengal): Tata Power's Haldia Power plant in West Bengal achieved a plant load factor (PLF) that's 34% higher than the national thermal plant average.

It also boasts outstanding auxiliary power consumption (APC) efficiency, thanks to various energy-saving initiatives aimed at preserving natural resources.

This 120 MW facility in East Midnapore plays a crucial role in meeting the region's energy needs.

The Plant Load Factor (PLF), a pivotal industry metric, gauges the average capacity utilization of a power unit.

In contrast, auxiliary power consumption reflects the energy consumed by the auxiliary equipment of the generating station.

Joint initiatives have not only optimized process parameters but also successfully addressed challenges, including elevated fuel gas temperatures.

The noteworthy PLF and APC achievements at the Haldia plant set new industry benchmarks and underscore the division's unwavering commitment to maximizing energy output during operational periods.

Overcoming various challenges, Haldia has also emerged as a pioneer in the adoption of sustainable practices, practicing several noteworthy achievements such as:

Attaining the lowest monthly specific water consumption is a step towards an unwavering commitment to efficient water management.

Beyond achieving operational excellence, the Haldia team actively participated in a knowledge-sharing initiative in August 2023, where they visited Electro Steel Limited. This collaborative effort was geared towards cultivating mutual learning and implementing best practices through in-depth technical discussions.

Operating as one of the waste heat recovery plants utilizing coke oven gases, plays a pivotal role in significantly curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

Notably, the Tata Power Haldia plant is the first private power plant in West Bengal to obtain clearance for the open access sale of power.

Haldia's accomplishments not only highlight Tata Power's unwavering commitment to sustainable practices but also exemplify its dedication to community engagement and continual advancement towards a greener and more resilient energy future.
