NTPC inks MoU with Railways for transportation of fly ash

NTPC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hazipur-based East Central Railway Zone for transportation of fly ash under Indian Railways' Special Freight Train Operator (SFTO) scheme. The company has become the first entity in the country to sign an SFTO agreement with Indian Railways.

As part of the agreement, the company has procured three Bogey Tank For Alumina Powder (BTAP) rakes and each rake will have a capacity of 3,060 tonne ash. The first of the three rakes is expected to arrive by October 2019. The pact with Indian Railways for fly ash transportation will help enhance ash utilization at Rihand and Vindhyachal Super Thermal Power plants and it will be further extended to other company projects.

NTPC is the largest power utility company in India and has presence in Coal, Gas, Solar PV, Hydro and Wind Power Generation and Coal Mining.
