R&D Project for “Development of Advanced Ultra Supercritical (Adv. USC) Technology for Thermal Power Plants” on a Mission Mode, at an estimated cost or Rs. 1554 crore was approved by CCEA in August, 2016. The project is proposed to be executed in two phases. The objective of the first phase, which started from 1.4.2017, is to undertake R&D on all aspects of Adv-USC technology for thermal power plants in order to improve power plant efficiency, reduce carbon-dioxide emissions and reduce coal consumption per unit of power generated. In the second phase, an 800 MWe Adv-USC Demonstration power plant based on the developed technology will be established. The project will be carried out jointly by BHEL under DHI, Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) under Department of Atomic Energy and National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) under Ministry of Power, who have entered into a Memorandum of Undertaking (MoU). The duration of the R&D project (Ist Phase) is upto 30th September, 2020.
