Subject: Re: Maharashtra Plants
I have the list below with the information I have:
Ghatghar Don't Know
Tata Hydro Hydro
Koyna IV Is a pump storage project, but am not clear on fuel, probably uses
electric pumps during off peak. Primary purpose is likely irrigation.
Uran Domestic gas, currently in short supply
Dabhol Naphtha, converts to LNG with Phase II
Additionally, please note that there is no other liquid fuel fired power
plant in Maharashtra, aside from Dabhol. The Reliance Patalganga plant is
still under development and this would be naphtha based when completed, but
it is not clear that it will go ahead. There was a scheme to develop liquid
fuel fired medium sized projects in many states, including a bid for 9 such
plants in Maharashtra. None of them are likely to see light of day.
In short, DPC cannot replace any other oil fired plant in Maharashtra with a
higher heat rate.
Hope this helps. I will be back in Mumbai next week. Please let me know if
additional information is needed. I am available at 011-91-9821068238 when
We are starting the data collection and ratification for the Henwood study in
earnest, and I am having there representative in India also on Friday.

Can you identify the fuel for each of the plants listed for Maharashtra in
the Appendices you gave me?
