No dearth of coal; crisis due to logistic issues: CIL 24.5.2018 General News
Coal India Limited (CIL) today claimed that there was no dearth of the fossil fuel in the country, but power plants are facing short supply due to logistics issues. "There is no shortage of coal in India. Today itself, there are 45 million tonnes of stocking in the country," CIL's newly appointed CMD Anil Kumar Jha told reporters. Jha, however, admitted that there was logistics problem in transporting coal to different power plants across the country. "Where there is coal, there is no rail network. So, until and unless the coal is transported to the power plant, having coal has no meaning," the CIL CMD said. "There is no dearth of coal, but there is logistics problem. We are looking at it," Jha said. Jha, who was the Chairman and Managing Director of Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL) and later assumed charge of Chairman-cum-Managing Director of Coal India Limited, visited Lord Jagannath temple yesterday.

Russian Government run atomic energy corporation 'ROSATOM' 24.5.2018 General News
World's First Floating Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP) 'Akademik Lomonosov' has been developed by ROSATOM, the Russian State run Atomic Energy Corporation.The FNPP was designed to make it possible to supply electricity to hard-to-reach areas, regardless of transport infrastructure, landscape, and cost of fuel delivery. The reactor have the potential to work particularly well in regions with extended coastlines, power supply shortages, and limited access to electrical grids.Up to 40 percent of the cost of fossil fuel-based electricity generation is attributed to the price of coal, oil or gas, as well as to the cost of their delivery. This figure is even higher for especially remote locations. The small size, light weight, and fixed cost of the FNPP eliminate many such challenges. The small nuclear reactor can operate non-stop without the need for refueling for three to five years, thereby considerably reducing the cost of electricity generation.The nuclear floating unit is equipped with two

Captive power players concerned over new draft rules for them 23.5.2018 General News
Captive power producers body ICPPA today said the new draft rules for them are against the spirit and provisions of Electricity Act 2003 and deepen the woes of NPA-hit power sector.
