Vedanta plans to modify the design of one of its waste heat recovery power plants in Goa and reoptimize its turbines using specialized technology to increase power generation by another 5 MW, according to a top company official. This is reportedly being done by Vedanta in its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.
“The turbine that generated 30 MW will now generate 35 MW using the same amount of heat. We will use highly specialized technology to ensure that heat loss and recirculation loss are minimized “Sujal Shah, CEO of Vedanta Ltd’s iron ore business, told news agency PTI.
Vedanta has already used this technology to boost power generation at one of its Rajasthan power plants.
