Further, NTPC is developing Talcher Thermal Power Project, Stage-III within old TTPS plant premises in Angul district, which was taken over by NTPC from Odisha State Electricity Board in 1995. The old TTPS plant was decommissioned after completing more than 50 years of service to the nation. The upcoming plant will have highly efficient ultra super critical technology-based units and approximately three times capacity of the old TTPS plant. While 50% capacity from this project is dedicated to the state of Odisha, other beneficiaries Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Assam will also get low-cost power from this pit-head station.

This project is being constructed with all modern environmental features like efficient electrostatic precipitator, Flue gas desulphurization, bio-mass cofiring, covered storage space for coal and will thus help in lesser Specific Coal Consumption and C02 emissions.

Besides creating direct and indirect employment opportunities in the region, these projects have contributed to improvement of physical infrastructure such as approach road, drainage, transportation and communication facilities, he added.
