Toshiba Hydro Case Study 

1: Urgent need of supplying Power to large tracts of the country that are still “IN THE DARK”

If there is one industry where the current phase of globalization, which started about three decades ago, can be decisively beneficial to India, it is the hydroelectric power sector. India will continue to face an exponential growth of electricity demand over the next quarter century and beyond due to the high economic growth targets.

However, there is a massive mismatch between aggregate national electricity requirements, natural resources and capital availability. To meet this acute capital crunch, India needs huge doses of private investment, both domestic and foreign.

2: Toshiba wants to play a decisive role in raising India's Power generation capacity

In today’s world a stable power supply is considered a basic necessity, almost a fundamental right. India’s acute power shortage is a stumbling block to its progress in becoming an economic superpower. Toshiba wants to play a decisive role in raising India’s power generation capacity through conventional fixed speed and pumped storage hydro power plant. As contributions of renewable energy with sources like solar and wind power are likely to rise, another excellent option is to adopt Adjustable Speed Pumped Storage schemes which can absorb and balance fluctuation in output and frequency. This will help turn India from a power-deficient to a power-surplus country.

K. K. Singh“Due to extraordinary longevity, Toshiba-designed plants also happen to be among the world’s most cost-effective. And this factor is important in a country like India, where it is essential to produce power at the cheapest possible rates”

Mr. K.K. Singh
NTPC’s Regional Executive Director (Hydro)

India is today seeing one of the highest rates of economic growth in the world, which will lead to a corollary increase in electricity demand over the next few decades. One of top national priorities today is to provide every Indian citizen reliable access to electricity and it is the duty of all those involved in the power industry to go on an all-out mission to work towards that.

Hydroelectric power will keep taking a bigger and bigger slice from India’s energy basket. NTPC’s Koldam hydroelectric project, is the first case in which NTPC will operate a hydro-power plant which will support an 800 MW power station and will boost the state’s economy.The major criteria for choosing an equipment partner are; the company’s reputation, reliability quotient, past projects’ performance, cost efficiency record etc.

NTPC was impressed with the fact that despite being a Japanese brand, Toshiba has always offered products and solutions suited to the requirements of India and he’s sure that the NTPC-Toshiba partnership will play a landmark role in resolving India’s power crisis.

3: India’s bond with Toshiba railway expertise is well set to grow in coming years

Modern railways today has an intense demands for energy usage, reliability, availability, maintainability, safety and costs force developers to use modern design and prove out tools. Railways of the future will depend on multiple skills and delivery experience to meet user and operator demands. Railways are now integrated systems.Whether it is urban transport, where real time information and control are critical to success or high speed train systems, where sensitive controls and equipment monitoring is a fundamental need, railway system providers have to integrate many diverse links for successful delivery.Such needs have in a way been proven out in urban systems like Delhi Metro and will be in demand as India’s first high speed rail link is eagerly awaited. A high speed network with multiple hubs, panning across the country, will become visible in coming years. This will need system integrators and technology owners to put in modern train systems.

Toshiba is well placed for such integration, oversight and supply as it has well demonstrated in Japan Shinkansen and the Taiwan adaptation. Proven experience in such systems will be imperative so that right choices are made in the planning stage which alone can control costs, ensure speedy execution and promise good product delivery.

Toshiba T&D Case Study 

1: Urgent need to stabilize India’s energy losses during transmission & distribution

India's electricity losses during transmission and distribution (T&D) are a mammoth 28.44 percent, with the peak shortfall (between 5p.m. and 11p.m.) being as high as 13 percent. The most bizarre contradiction is that 84.9 percent of Indian villages have at least one electricity line but only 46 percent of rural households have access to electricity.

Such severe electricity losses during the T&D process not only lead to 400 million Indians missing out on power access during blackouts but also affect the country's economic growth adversely.
