NTPC works towards being a cost cognizant organization
Cost cognizant organization – NEW DELHI, INDIA – NTPC Ltd, India’s largest power producer, is working to improve fuel availability for pit head plants in order to lower energy generation costs. NTPC Darlipali Super Thermal Power Plant (STPP) has inked a captive coal supply agreement with NTPC Dulanga Coal Mines (DLCMP) in the state of Odisha in order to make NTPC a more cost-conscious corporation and make power generation more economical and sustainable.
NTPC Ltd., as a cost-conscious organization, is utilizing all of its internal resources to decrease the cost of electricity.
The cost structure of coal in India is very expensive, with a large amount of the cost coming from high transportation expenses due to the lack of coal locally.
External entities are used by power plants for road haulage and railways to deliver coal from mines.
