Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) for Talcher Super Thermal Power Station, Stage-1 & II, Odisha

Publish : May 2021, 06

With the industry now adopting new technologies such as Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) , India is contributing towards curbing emissions from thermal power plants to make power generation more sustainable and environment-friendly. 

CENGRS has successfully completed the Geotechnical & Topographical Survey Work for Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) for Talcher Super Thermal Power Station, Stage-1 & II (2 x 500 MW + 4 x 500 MW), Odisha on behalf of M/s. Tata Projects Limited. NTPC is the main client.

Talcher Thermal Power Station (TTPS) is situated near Talcher town in Angul district of Odisha having existing capacity of 460 MW [Stage-I (4x60 MW) + Stage-II (2x110 MW)]. The scope of work includes carrying out 41 Boreholes through soil and Rock, 5 Trial Pits, 12 Electrical Resistivity Tests, 3 Field CBR Tests, 5 Cyclic Plate Load Tests & 15 Field Permeability Tests. The proposed FGD facilities ensure compliance to the environmental norms.

At the project site, sandstone was encountered at shallow depths (3-6 m). Most heavily loaded facilities like the Chimney and Absorber are being supported on raft foundations bearing on rock. Medium loaded fcilities are supported on isolated foundations with connecting beams on soil.
