PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT ACTIVITY
The proposed project activity is commissioning and operation of a new, green field 469 MW Natural Gas fired, gas turbine based combined cycle power plant. It has been installed by GVK Gautami Power Ltd. at Industrial Development Area, Peddapuram, near Samalkot in East Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh, India.
The project activity uses relatively cleaner fuel, natural gas instead of most common fuel in the grid i.e. coal for power generation. Thus, the project activity avoids significant emission compared to the usual practice in coal dominated Indian power sector.
The project is less emission intensive compared with the common coal based power and average fuel mix in the grid and aims at reducing the GHG emission reduction by use of a relatively lesser GHG intensive fuel i.e. natural gas.
