20 MW Biomass Power Project at Godawari Power and Ispat Limited, Chhattisgarh(ID: 103000000007877)
Godawari Green Energy Limited
Godawari Power and Ispat Limited (GPIL) has installed a 20 MW biomass based power project at Siltara, Raipur. The purpose of the project activity is to generate electricity using renewable biomass residues i.e. rice husk to reduce GHG (CO2) emissions. As biomass is a CO2 neutral fuel, the power produced by the GPIL from renewable biomass will have zero GHG emissions. Also as it is replacing fossil fuel intensive based power generation from NEWNE grid, thereby results in reducing emissions from such fossil fuels. In the project activity, biomass shall be combusted in the boiler for producing high pressure steam to generate 20 MW electricity. The total annual generation of electricity from project activity will be 126.72 GWh. The rice husk will be collected from a radius of 50 km from project site. The project has obtained the requisite clearances and is commissioned on 01 November 2010.
