PFC Consulting, the consultancy arm of Power Finance Corporation (PFC), has invited bids to appoint a technical consultant for its 4,000 MW UMPP in Deoghar, Jharkhand. After a gap of four years, when the last ultra mega power plant (UMPP) was commissioned in 2015, the government is hopeful of reviving the UMPP policy.
The technical consultant will conduct the site feasibility study, and obtain the environmental and forest clearances for the power plant. The bid opened on June 24 and will close on July 22.
The Deoghar UMPP will source around 105 million cubic metre per annum of water from the river Ganga through a proposed 125-km-long pipeline, while coal will be allocated from Rajmahal Coalfields through a merry-go-round-rail (MGR) corridor of around 100 km.
Coal reserves at Rajmahal are estimated at 13 billion tonne. As per tender document, the timeline for proposed technical studies and clearances is set as 390 days from the date of award. Read More
