Leakage Power of Rs 1 billion per Year

10 years, 1 month ago - July 04, 2012
Leaks in the network of the Central Electricity Board (CEB) cause enormous harm to the organization each year. 8% of the energy is lost annually.

The 8% is the sum of one billion rupees. Figure that has been advanced by the president of the organization to Balraj Narroo Morning. "We try as best they can to reduce these losses, but it is in much better position than other more developed than us," he argued.

Behind the scenes it also argues that this is one reason for the decline profit, in addition to investments. If last year, profits of the organization amounted to Rs 1 billion, this year they will be only Rs 200 million.

Consumers also are warned! The CEB is desperate to prevent the theft of electricity over its network. So the agency decided to replace its normal meters by Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) devices.

New turbines in St. Louis

To date, 688 Automatic Meter Reading have already been installed. With this system, the officers of the organization can check everything from their headquarters and the risk of damage is very minimal. Right now, the end of each month, Meter Readers start at subscribers to record the energy used and usually this is not the exact amount that is registered. Now it's done. We will monitor the consumption of each. Before long, the AMR will be installed in 35,000 commercial customers and industrial 7000.

The CEB has also install electronic meters. The organization will more accurately consumer subscribers using the digital readout instead of analog. To date 51,500 meters have been installed. The agency will launch the tender for the installation of two turbines of 15 megawatts each at Saint-Louis. But it was not until 2014 that this project will end before being operational for adding to the network of the body 30 megawatts.

Patrick Assirvaden: "We must move quickly on initiatives in the CEB"

The President of the Labour Party (PTr) Patrick Assirvaden stressed that the government wants to build a terminal in Medina during the debate on the speech program. "I am not against the CT Power Project. With all procedures, the Central Electricity Board (CEB) will proceed with heavy oil in the resort of St Louis. Deputy Prime Minister must consider the site of Fort George, where you can install turbines of 50 megawatts twice in order to have 100 megawatts in our networks.

"On the Small Independent Power Producer (SIPP), one wonders why it only stops at three megawatts. Many people want to produce their own energy. It can produce up to 12 to 13 megawatts. Thus, coal will still exist over the next decade. The wind continues to lag. The CEB should go faster. It is time to decide now. "
