NTPC Kawas bags top honor in energy conservation
NTPC Kawas received the first prize in the Thermal Power stations sector category in the National Energy Conservation award-2012. NTPC Kawas is one of the prestigious state of the art gas-based combined cycle power plants initially developed along the Hazira-Bijapur-Jagdidhpur (HBJ) Pipeline in Gujarat.

THE AWARD was received by Shankar Das, AGM I/C from President of India Pranab Mukherjee at a function held in Vigyan Bhawan. Jyotiraditya Scindia, Union Minister of State for Power ( Independent charge) and P. Uma Shankar, Secretary, Power were also present on the occasion.

The project is located near Kawas village of Surat district in Gujarat and was commissioned in 1993. The plant having total generation capacity of 645 MW is capable of running on mixed fuel (both Natural gas and or Naphtha). Power from the station is supplied to the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Dadra Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu and Goa.

NTPC Kawas has state-of-the-art simulator centre for hands on training of operating personnel to work in a gas/ liquid fuel-based power station. The station has adopted several measures for energy conservation like Installation of Side-Stream Filtration Plant, thereby reducing the water consumption from 2000cu m/hr to less than 1000cu m/hr.

Mixed fuel facility incorporated to improve the loading factor of the station, when sufficient gas is not available resulted in saving of fuel due to increase in efficiency. Reduction in power consumption at the Station has been made sure by replacing standard motors with energy efficient ones.
