Nagpur Municipal Corporation engages Feedback Ventures for unique power project
New Delhi, December 18, 2008: Feedback Ventures, an infrastructure services company, has announced, today, that the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has engaged it for assisting pre-developmental activities such as technical studies, fuel linkage, environment clearance, selection of the private developer, etc. to develop 500 MW coal-based thermal power plant near Nagpur. The assignment is expected to be completed in eight to ten months; at the end of which, the implementation would be handed over to the selected private sector developer.
Mr. Shailesh Joshi, President, Government Consulting at the Energy Division of Feedback Ventures says, This project is expected to provide the much-needed relief to people who are reeling under severe power shortage. The unique feature of this plant would be to utilize water from the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) for power generation and would not draw upon the scarce water resources of the Vidarbha region.
The proposed power plant is intended to be developed through Public Private Partnership and is expected to commence power generation in the early period of 12th Plan. The land for the power plant would be made available by NMC close to its sewage treatment plant at Bandewadi, about 10 km. from the Nagpur City. This assignment would pave the way for other municipal corporations to follow suit.
