CLIENT : TORRENT POWER GENERATION LTD.

PROJECT SUMMARY :

SUGEN 1147.5 MW CCPP, set up at an investment of Rs. 31 Billion, is an ambitious project of the Torrent Group for meeting the power deficit in the western region of India in general and for meeting the power requirement of its Ahmedabad ( including Gandhinagar) and Surat distribution areas (which are part of the western regional grid and the Gujarat state grid). The project is strategically located. It is close to River Tapi, National Highway No.8, gas supply infrastructure comprising LNG terminals and main gas trunk lines.

 

The Water requirement for the project was covered by constructing a 70 Mld Water Supply Scheme based on Tapi River. The project involved construction of Intake Well on Tapi River near Gaypagla, Control Room on the Banks, 900 mm dia GRP Pipeline in about 6 km length, Raw Water reservoir having about 7 days storage capacity.

 

During the conception of the project MMCPL scope including doing a hydraulic study of the Tapi river to establish water availability. MMCPL prepare the necessary feasibility report for Government Approvals.

During the execution phase MMCPL scope included conducting soil investigations at the site, preparation of detailed designs, working drawings and cost estimates for all civil and pipeline works components including valves, valve chambers etc. Designs, Working drawings and cost estimates. The service also covered inviting tenders, evaluation of the bids, recommendation for award of work etc. and third party inspection and material testing, direct supervision over execution of complete contract to ensure quality control, timely completion, guaranteed performance of the work.

Water Supply For Surat City

Author:

CLIENT : SURAT MUNICIPAL CORPORATION

PROJECT SUMMARY :

Surat is the 2nd largest city in Gujarat with a population of about 3.0 Million. Surat is situated on the banks of the Tapi River, one of the 3 perennial rivers in Gujarat. The city until the last decade though on the banks of the Tapi river faced major water shortages as it lied in the inter tidal zone resulting in saline water in the river near the Surat City. In the early 90’s , a weir cum causeway was constructed near the Singanpore area in the city which resulted in creation of large fresh water reservoir in the river. With the launch of  Jawarharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) by the Ministry of Urban Development, Govt of India , it was decided to augment the water supply of the city in such a way so as to reduce physical and non physical water losses and also provide water supply 24×7 with metering through creation of DMA’s.(District Metering Associations)

The city of Surat which until 2006 was 112 sq km became 311 sq km by addition of new areas in the periphery affected by urbanisation. This resulted in the requirement of Water Infrastructure in these areas.

To augment the entire water system of the city, the following projects were indentified for which detailed project reports were prepared by MMCPL alongwith SMC engineers and were approved by JnNURM Directorate after technical appraisal by the CPHEEO (Central Public Health Engineering Dept), Govt of India :

Sujlam–Suflam Spreading Canal – Adundra Project

Author:

CLIENT : ESSAR CONSTRUCTIONS LTD  / GUJARAT WATER RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT CORP.

PROJECT SUMMARY :

 

The Narmada Dam constructed on the River Narmada is one of the largest multi purposed river valley projects in the world.  The Narmada river though perennial in nature has maximum flow during June to September due to heavy precipitation in the area caused by the South West Monsoon. This discharge cannot be managed and normally flows into the sea.

 

To utilise the excess discharge from the Narmada River and help the water scarce regions of North Gujarat and Kutch, a project was initiated by the Govt of Gujarat called the Sufalam Suflam project.

The project consists of three components: pumping ‘excess’ water from the Narmada canal into nine North Gujarat dams by laying a dozen odd pipelines each about 100-km long; building an unlined canal across all the 21 rivers in North Gujarat; and, building two hundred thousand farm-ponds under the food-for-work scheme.One of the components of the project is a pipeline  of 24.8 km from Adundra (on the Narmada Main Canal) upto Kherwa along with Pumping station.

The work was given to M/s Essar Constructions Ltd on EPC Basis.

MMCPL scope involved preparation of Detailed Designs and Working Drawings for 2350 mm dia. MS pipeline of 24.8 km length together with (a) suction sump, (b) pumphouse for pumping 734 mLd water, (c) staff quarters  and ancillary structures (d) reservoir at Kherwa and (e) Electrical and Mechanical components including SCADA and switch yard. The pumping machinery provided is 7 pumps (6 working + 1 standby) of 5100 m3/hr. capacity and 80 m head.

 

PROJECT OUTCOME :

 

The project was completed in time for the excess water from the Narmada Canal to be pumped in the reservoir at Kherwa. The project has aided the improvement in Ground water table due to the recharging and hence helped the agriculture in the area.

West Ahmedabad Water Supply Scheme

Author:

CLIENT : AHMEDABAD URBAN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY, AHMEDABAD

PROJECT SUMMARY :

Ahmedabad is the 7th largest city in India with a present population and 5.5 Million which is likely to be 11 Million by 2021. The Western Parts of the city which till 2006 did not fall in the limits of the Municipal Corporation were developed by the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority in 80’s and 90’s due to pressure for development by creating Town Planning and schemes and providing road infrastructure. However the entire area covering 35 villages/Municipalities depended on Ground Water for drinking. The Ground Water depleted over the years resulting in Water with high TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) which is not suitable for drinking. Due to the above reasons AUDA decided to commission a water supply scheme based on Narmada Waters for the Western Areas. A headworks and Water Treatment Plant was constructed at Jaspur with a present capacity of 275 Mld and a future capacity of 400 Mld.

MMCPL was entrusted the work of design and project management for the Distribution Network for 16 villages which included the following components :

  1. Pipeline
    1. Mild Steel Pipe – Length – 55,075 m.
    2. Ductile Iron Pipe – Length – 61,045 m.
    3. PVC Pipe – Length – 5,17,425 m.
  2. Storage
    1. Underground Storage – 30 Nos. of RCC U/G Sump – 11 lakh litres to 100 lakh litres.
    2. Elevated Storage
      1. 22 Nos. RCC ESR – 250 thousand litres to 500 thousand litres and staging height – 15 m. to 24 m.

 

  1. Pumping Machinery 
    1. 97 Nos of pumping sets with head  from 17 m to 42 m and total 8500 KW
  2. Pumphouses
    1. 30 Nos. of pump houses having total built up area of 4440 sq.m.

PROJECT OUTCOME :

 

The project was commissioned in 2006 and at present about 200 Mld water is being supplied to the people of West Ahmedabad. The Project Area covered served is 81.27 sq km and ultimate population which will be served by the scheme in 2031 is 2 Million.
