  • Flue Gas Based Seawater Desalination System

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Flue Gas based Seawater Desalination pilot plant is an innovative, low-carbon intensive desalination system. This plant is first of its kind in India. In this facility, the waste heat from exiting flue gas in a fossil fired power plant is utilized for distillation of sea water instead of steam or electricity as used in conventional desalination system. This is a proof of concept facility. Once various elements of this technology are proofed and efficacy of the plant is established, this system can be replicated with or withouth scale up in other power stations. 

  • 100 KWp Floating Solar PV System

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017
    Objective: 

    Floating Solar PV System, i.e. installation of solar panels on water bodies, is emerging as an alternative for conventional ground mounted PV installations, which are land intensive. Presently the technology of floating platform is limited to very few manufacturers and too expensive compared to conventional PV systems. In order to indigenously develop a cost effective floater platform, a collaborative project has been taken up by NETRA with Central Institute for Plastic Engineering and Technology (CIPET), Chennai. 

  • Solar Thermal HVAC System

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017
    Objective: 

    The Solar Thermal HVAC (ST-HVAC) System is a low carbon, green house gas-free air conditioning solution. The ST-HVAC set up at NETRA is basically a 'proof of concept' plant. Once various elements of this technology are proofed and the efficacy of the plant is established, the same can be replicated in power stations with or without scaling up. 

    The brochure contains system descriptions and further details. 

  • Solar Thermal Cooking System

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017
    Objective: 

    Solar Thermal Cooking System (STCS) is an innovative low-carbon, all weather cooking solution capable of cooking in all 3 modes i.e. boiling, frying and baking based cooking. It is installed at Main Plant Canteen of NTPC Dadri. This STCS is a 'proof of concept' plant. Once various technology elements of STCS are proved and its efficacy is established, same can be replicated in other canteens of NTPC power station, with or without scale up. 

    The brochure contains further information on salient features, system descriptions, and technical details.
