Today a MoU was signed between NTPC Dadri and Noida Authority regarding the purchase of sewage treated water. In the MoU it has been decided that Noida authority will supply sewage treated water for two units of 980 megawatt electricity producing unit of Dadri thermal power plant.
From NTPC side AK Das Gupta General Manager, Head of thermal power plant and from Noida Authority Chief Maintenance Engineer Sama Kant Srivastav signed the Memorandum of Understanding.
This project will be completed by Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam. As this ambitious project becomes operational around 30 crore rupees of revenue will be generated by selling sewage treated water. After this all the water treatment plant of Noida will become self dependent for their operation and they will not require any additional grant from the government.
Under this project a 36 KM pipe line will be laid from Noida sewage treatment plant to Dadri NTPC. For this Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam has to prepare a DPR after conducting a survey so that exact cost of the project can be estimated. NTPC will bear the total cost of the project.
Regarding this the NTPC had written letter to the Noida Authority for first time on June 30. The move came as per the policy of Electricity Ministry Government of India in which it was directed that all the thermal power plant will have to operate by the sewage treated water from a water treatment plant located within 50 km of the concerned unit. After signing of this MoU Noida will be the first city in north India witnessing two units of a thermal power plant which will be operational through sewage treated water.
