NTPC Simhadri celebrates its 46th Raising Day

Visakhapatnam: NTPC Ltd has reiterated its commitment to nation building and energizing India ahead of its 46th Raising Day. India’s largest power producer, which commenced its purposeful journey on November 7, 1975 and has made a stellar contribution in lighting every nook and corner of the country, is fully geared to steer the next phase of growth and transformation in India’s power sector that offers immense opportunities.

Program started in the morning by hoisting of the NTPC flag in front of administrative building longue  and an address by the Executive Director , Mr. V Sudharshan Babu, in the presence of employees. In his address, he highlighted the 4 decade long glorious history of the organization and the journey till 62,910 MW. The achievements and contributions of all employees for achieving this feat was remembered. As a front runner project of NTPC, Simhadri Power Project’s accomplishments and future endeavours were also celebrated and realized respectively.

The Raising Day was celebrated through online platforms and  maintaining social distancing recently. This also makes the Raising Day special, as NTPC Officials and staff worked round the clock during the lockdown phase earlier this year to ensure uninterrupted power supply to the nation. Electricity is an essential part of our lives and its availability 24 by 7 during the lockdown proved extremely critical in providing seamless emergency services and facilitating the smooth working of lifesaving equipment.

This brought additional responsibility on NTPC and it delivered beyond the demand. Everyone has been rightfully applauding the front-line Corona warriors including medical professionals and essential service providers, but the pandemic also established power engineers as new heroes.

NTPC has been the flag bearer for the power sector in the country in the last 45 years. From its current power producing capacity of 62 GW, NTPC plans to become a 130 GW company by the year 2032.

The gradual shift towards renewables is one part of NTPC’s commitment towards sustainable power generation and safeguarding the environment. At the same time, NTPC is currently making huge investments towards deployment of FGD equipment, whereby more than 60 GW capacity has been tendered for FGD for its various coal based power plants, in order to cut down harmful emissions

As part of its commitment towards the environment, NTPC has undertaken many ‘firsts’ for the sector. NTPC is working towards utilizing agro residue for power generation to discourage in-field crop residue burning. NTPC has pioneered co-firing of Biomass pellets along with coal in the boilers.

Also this occasion was attended by Mr. A K Srivastav-CGM(SSC), SH. G.C.Choukse-GM(O&M), GMs from  Simhadri & SSC-SR, HODs,  representatives from Union & Association.
