  • NTPC is expected to complete the feasibility research in regarding 2 months.
  • The proposed 130 MW floating nuclear power plant is necessary for the state's aim of generating 200 MW solar power by 2030.

National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) claimed that it will be conducting a feasibility research for a 130 MW floating solar energy plant on Dumbur Lake that falls in Gomati district of Tripura. In the existing situation, Tripura Renewable Energy Development Agency (TREDA) has actually inked an MoU with NTPC for the feasibility research study.

As part of the research study, NTPC is going to examine the waterbody where the floating solar will turn up, also determine transmission stations and try to find forest clearance. NTPC will certainly take about 2 months to complete the research study of the first renewable energy plant in Tripura that will set you back about Rs 450 crore based on TREDA Joint Director Debabrata Sukladas.

The TREDA Joint Director claimed on the NTPC led project, "The recommended 130-MW floating power plant is very important for the state's objective of creating 200 MW solar energy by 2030. The state's average solar energy energy's potentiality stands at 2080 MW. The TREDA, Tripura State Electricity Corporation (TSECL), and also the Tripura Power Generation Company-- all are striving to touch the solar energy capacity of the state."
