WATER OPTIMISATION 2019

WATER usage in power plants has become a critical issue. According to recent government data, over 8,000 MW of thermal capacity was forced to shut down during periods of acute water scarcity in the past couple of years. Moreover, developers are facing increasing difficulty in the selection of new sites for planned projects across states. With water being a key input for several important plant processes such as cooling towers and ash handling systems, there is already a growing realisation amongst power plant operators about the need to reduce specific water consumption through best practices in water efficiency as well as technological efforts.

Policy Initiatives
The government, on its part, has attempted to lower the power sector’s water footprint through the tightening of regulations and increasing the water tariffs. The most significant development in this regard has been the notification of new water consumption standards in December 2015. As per the new norms, water consumption by thermal power plants will have to be cut by about one-third their current levels from 2017 onwards. They further require all plants that will be set up after January 2017 to achieve a water consumption level of 2.5 m3 per MWh. For existing cooling tower-based plants, water consumption needs to be restricted to 3.5 m3 per MWh.

Challenges and The Way Forward
At the same time, adopting new water conserving technologies has become a necessity to help mitigate the impact of future water shortages. Several water use reduction technologies are available, each with different benefits and costs. By far, the type of cooling system in a generation plant has the most significant effect on water consumption intensity. In water-restricted regions, air-cooled condensers can offer the most optimal solution.

Ash handling is another key water-intensive process in thermal power plants. Power plant operators are re-evaluating wet ash-handling practices. Dry bottom ash handling techniques, optimisation of ash-water ratios, and use of treated water for ash handling are some of the solutions being considered.

RENOVATION & MODERNISATION 2019

The renovation and modernisation (R&M) of coal-based thermal power plants (TPPs) is crucial, both from an environmental and an economic perspective. As of February 2018, there are a total of 622 coal-based power plant units in the country, of which 197 have been operating for more than 25 years. Given that a large number of generating units are old and have outlived their designed life, R&M has been recognised as a cost-effective option to restore the rated capacities of these plants. It helps improve generation, minimise inefficiencies and extend the life of the plants. Moreover, R&M is required for minimising emissions from the existing fleet of old TPPs, thus ensuring compliance with environmental norms.

Policy Initiatives
The government initiated the R&M programme for thermal power units in 1984 in order to improve their performance. During 2012-17, the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) identified a total of 135 thermal power units with an aggregate capacity of 29,367 MW for R&M and life extension (LE). However, of these, works for only 37 units totaling 7,202.26 MW were completed during this period. Going forward, R&M and life extension (LE) works for 64 units aggregating 14,705 MW are being considered for the 2017-22 period. 

Another key initiative taken by the government has been the replacement of power plants older than 25 years with new supercritical units. According to the CEA’s data, around 32,830 MW of capacity had been operating for more than 25 years, as of March 31, 2015. Of this, around 5,860 MW was considered for retirement in a phased manner while 4,800 MW was taken up for R&M. In addition, around 10,180 MW of old units were identified for replacement with supercritical units. Of this, an aggregate capacity of 6,542 MW has already been retired between September 2015 and November 2017. 

Challenges and The Way Forward
The pace of R&M works at coal-based plants has been rather slow. As per a study conducted by the CEA, the actual plant shutdown period for R&M works varies from 13 to 30 months, instead of the scheduled six to eight months. In order to minimise the shutdown period and avoid time and cost overruns, the necessary preparations for material/ equipment procurement need to be made in advance. Further, in order to prevent technical faults during R&M, DPRs should be prepared by consultants on the basis of residual life assessment studies. Moreover, project management guidelines for R&M works should be identified, defined and standardised. 

Often, contractors/subcontractors leave their work midway. To address this problem, utilities have made provisions for liquidated damages for delays in the completion of work at the chargeable rate of 0.25 per cent per week of the contract value. The decision to undertake R&M or replacement would depend on techno-economic aspects and may be considered on a case-to-case basis by the concerned power utilities. Despite various roadblocks, R&M and LE offer potential solutions for improving power plant performance in a cost-effective manner. Going forward, clear timelines, adequate financial support and comprehensive analyses can change the way R&M works have been executed so far.
