Keeping in view the future power requirements of the capital city of Amaravati, the state government has unveiled its ambitious plans to add 11,670 mw more to its capacity. The government will take up projects in that direction in the next 10 years at an estimated cost of Rs 84,000 crore.
At a review meeting here on Sunday, managing director of AP Genco K K Vijayanand said that the chief minister had directed the officials to adopt the latest global technologies in power generation for optimising thermal power generation in a cost-effective manner. He said the government will tap non-conventional energy sources like solar and wind power.
Vijayanand, who is also the chairman and managing director (CMD) of AP Transco, said that the state government is keen to constitute a committee to study the best global practices and the latest IT initiatives in thermal energy generation, transmission and distribution.” To further enhance the efficiency of AP utilities, we are planning to study the best practices adopted in Japan and Germany,” he added.
Stating that the state government is ready to meet power requirements during summer, Vijayanand said AP Genco is geared to enhance its thermal power generation. Nick Martin Womens JerseyShare This
