NTPC plans to call bids for LNG terminal in A&N islands

NTPC Limited is planning to invite bids to build a 50 MW floating micro-liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in the Andaman and Nicobar islands.

The clean fuel sourced through the floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) will help generate 50MW at Hope Town in South Andaman, to power the islands and replace the current system of generating power from diesel. The plant is proposed to be set up by NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVN).
