DVC takes fresh initiatives in the power sector
DVC has adopted state of the art 3D Modeling & plant life cycle management software PDMS for its engineering. This will help in reducing the engineering/project time. DVC is one of the first Power Sector utilities as an owner operator to embrace this software solution. 3D models of 500 MW & 600 MW Thermal Power Plant and 400/220/132/33 KV substations have been developed. These digital assets are useful in plant O&M also.
DVC emerged as a culmination of attempts made over a whole century to control the wild and erratic Damodar River.
The valley has been ravaged frequently by floods at varying intensities. Serious floods occurred in 1730, 1823, 1848, 1856, 1882, 1898, 1901, 1916, 1923, 1935 & 1943.
The Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) is a government organization which operates several power stations in the Damodar River area of West Bengal and Jharkhand states of India.
The corporation operates both thermal power stations and hydel power stations under the Ministry of Power, Govt of India. DVC is headquartered in the city of Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
