  • Tariff petition for determination of generation tariff for GSPLs co-generation plant

    Goa Sponge and Power Ltd 2

    GOA SPONGE & POWER LIMITED (The Petitioner) RESPECTFULLYSUBMITS AS FOLLOWS:

    Goa Sponge & Power Limited (hereinafter referred to as the Petitioner or GSPL) is a limited companyregistered under the Indian Companies Act, 1956 with its registered office at 21/6 west patel nagar, new Delhi. .Established in March 2004, the Petitioner is one of the leading manufacturers of high quality Sponge Iron.

    The Petitioner operates a co-generation power plant (CPP) with an installed capacity of 12 MW. The powerplant has been developed with a vision to promote environmental sustainability, effective waste utilization andenergy security. The CPP has an 8 MW Waste Heat Recovery Boiler (WHRB) and 4 MW Fluidized bedcombustion (FBC) boiler. The FBC unit utilizes the Dolachar produced during the sponge iron productionprocess (along with supplementary firing of coal) whereas the WHRB utilizes the hot exhaust gasses which are aby-product of the sponge iron manufacturing process.

    The power produced in the power plant is utilized in the sponge iron manufacturing process and the inductionfurnaces in the steel melting shop. The facility also consumes power from the state grid at times based on totalrequirement of the facility and CPP generation. However at an overall level, the power generated from the CPPis in general more than the power imported from the grid, making the Petitioner a net exporter of power to thestate grid. The Petitioner supplies surplus power available with it (around 1 MW) to the GoaElectricity Department.

    The Petitioner entered into a power purchase agreement on the August 24, 2007 with the Government of Goa,for feeding the surplus electrical energy (around 1 MW) into the grid at 33 kV at Santona, Sanvordem. As pernegotiations and the then prevalent fuel cost, the tariff was fixed as per clause 5.1 of the said power purchaseagreement.

    (5.1) Tariff: The applicable tariff for the delivered energy by GSPL to the Government shall be Rs 2.40 perkWh till the expiry of the period of this Agreement. However, the tariff is subject to revision by theappropriate Regulatory Commission on a later date and such revised tariff shall be applicablefrom prospective date. In the event of such revision of tariff, if the Government is unwilling to purchasethe power at the rates determined by the appropriate Regulatory Commission, then the GSPL shall bepermitted to sell energy to third parties.

    The Petitioner submits that the existing tariff of Rs 2.40 per kWh being paid by the Government of Goa, nowunder the purview of the Goa Electricity Department (GED), is very low as compared to the prevalent fuel costsand tariff payable to other generating stations. Considering the provisions of the power purchase agreement,the Petitioner submitted a petition () before the Honble Commission on November 7, 2011 for revision of tariffapplicable for sale of power to GED under Section 86 (1) (a) to (e) of the Electricity Act, 2003.

    The Honble Commission on analysing the petition, however, noted discrepancies/ information gaps in thepetition. The Honble Commission vide its letters dated December 5, 2011 and April 19, 2012, asked thePetitioner to submit a revised petition after addressing the discrepancies observed in the tariff petition. TheHonble Commission noted the following defects in the petition:

    1. The petition is not in the form (JERC-2) prescribed in Chapter II of the JERC, Conduct of BusinessRegulations.

    2. The petition is also not in the format as prescribed by the Commission in Chapter III of JERC (Termsand Conditions for Determination of Tariff) Regulations, 2009

    3. As per the Regulations, the fee for the purpose amounts to Rs 5.0 lakhs. The balance fee may beremitted.

    The Petitioner is now filing its revised petition for determination of generation tariff for supply of surplus power(of around 1 MW) to Goa Electricity Department from its co-generation power plant after correcting for thedeficiencies pointed out by the Commission.
