NTPC CMD Gurdeep Singh’s visit energises Singrauli staff
NTPC Ltd’s brilliant and dynamic new Chairman and Managing Director Gurdeep Singh has made his first visit to the company’s crack Singrauli installations since joining NTPC in February. He was received by senior NTPC-Singrauli officers and given a guard of honor by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF ).
After a short halt, he went to the plant area where a presentation about the history of NTPC-Singrauli was delivered. Singh was all praise for NTPC -Singrauli for its rich heritage. After this, he proceeded to the main plant units 6 and 7, where he interacted with the engineers in the control room. After listening to them, Singh shared his own experiences and gave valuable tips for efficient operation and maintenance work.
He also visited unit 1 and was impressed that the 35-year-old unit has generated half of the country’s one-day total generation. After inspecting the full plant area, the CMD addressed a gathering of employees at RC Auditorium.
In his moving speech, which was interlaced with wit and profound insights, both on technology and business, Singh appreciated the sterling role of NTPC-Singrauli employees in keeping the Singrauli flag high.
He observed that NTPC-Singrauli is in the 2nd position not only within NTPC but among all other power producers in India.
Besides referring to the Union Government’s drive to achieve 24x7 power for every Indian, Singh emphasised the need for low-cost generation for the people by adopting information technology innovation and reducing the cost of coal and manpower.
In an interaction with senior NTPC-Singrauli officers, he also reviewed the performance of the plant and gave instructions for improvement of operations, monitoring, and conservation of environment and energy, safety measures, and corporate social responsibility activities.
With a strong message of the need for a clean environment, Singh advised each NTPC employee and family member to plant at least one tree. The CMD also planted a tree himself before leaving the station for NTPC-Vindhyachal.
