First Air-Cooled Condenser in Super Critical Plant
In a significant stride towards sustainability, NTPC North Karanpura in Jharkhand proudly unveils India’s first air-cooled condenser (ACC) installed supercritical plant. This groundbreaking project showcases a noteworthy commitment to water conservation, emphasizing reducing, reusing, and recycling.
The visionary project opted for an air-cooled condenser (ACC), boasting a remarkable 1/3rd water footprint compared to the conventional water-cooled condenser (WCC). This strategic choice translates to an impressive annual water saving of approximately 30.5 million cubic meters, effectively meeting the needs of 1.5 million people in the region.
Technological Advancement and Environmental Stewardship
Beyond technological innovation, this initiative underscores NTPC’s dedication to sustainability, providing a blueprint for a water-conscious and efficient future. This milestone enhances operational efficiency and positions NTPC as a leader in environmental stewardship.
As the inaugural air-cooled condenser in a supercritical plant, NTPC North Karanpura sets a new standard for water-saving practices in power generation. This achievement aligns with global efforts towards sustainable development and resource conservation.
