                                         SECTION - I


 1.1 Process Design Memorandum

   The preliminary process design criteria of main process plants for the proposed revival
   and upgradation of NPPC Mill at Tuli, have been dealt with in this memorandum. Some of
   the design criteria may undergo change during Basic Engineering and equipment
   selection; and the memorandum will be revised accordingly.
   Production forecast shows the annual expected production from the Mill and quantifies the
   pulp requirement from bamboo pulping street.
   Departmental operating data/ design calculation lists the basis adopted by professional
   judgment and shows calculation for equipment sizing, based on the process design and
   production requirement.

 1.2 Production Planning & Forecast

   The proposed capacity of the Mill of NPPC has been fixed at 66,000 FTPA (eq. to about
   200 FTPD on an average) of finished paper of specified product mix. The respective
   sections of the Mill will be put into operation after completion of retrofit/ repair/
   replacement and new installations. The start up and trial runs shall be affected section
   wise sequentially as below:
         Arrangement of Start-up Power
         Start up of Mill Water system
         Start up of Compressed Air system
         Instrumentation & Control System
         Start up of Steam and Power supply & distribution system including Fuel Handling
          & Ash Handling systems
         Start up of Paper Machine Complex (start up being planned with purchased pulp)
         Start up of Pulp Mill along with Chipper House
         Start up of Soda Recovery Plants
         Start up of Effluent Treatment system

   The commercial production will start after respective sections of the Mill have been
   stabilized for operation and overall system integration for production has been completed.

   It is expected that overall stabilization for integrated Mill operation at rated capacity to the
   tune of 200 FTPD paper will take about two(2) years‟ time.
   The production forecast of the Mill has been envisaged as below :
                1st year of operation        – 34,650 FTPA
                       (For 9 months)
                 nd
                2 year of operation         – 59,400 FTPA
               3rd year onwards            – 66,000 FTPA

   It may be noted that although most of sections of the Mill may reach desired production
   capacities at an earlier date, yet for sustained operation at rated capacity while ensuring
   desired production norms and quality criteria a longer period would be necessary.

 1.3 Raw Material Supply

  For the purpose of sustained supply of raw material at an economically viable rate, the
  procurement will be made primarily from two regions, namely the northern area consisting

of Mokokchung, Mon & northern Tuensang and the southern area consisting of Kohima and
Dimapur. Supply from Mon area will be mostly via Sonary. Produce from Mokakchung and
northern Tuensang will be transported directly along smaller roads, which exit in these
areas. The average distance of haul for Mon will be 100 km and that for Mokakchung and
northern Tuensang is estimated to be 40 km. Thus, the average distance of road
transportation for the northern area will be around 70 km. For the southern area major part
of bamboo is available in Dimapur district. It is suggested that a fairly large depot may be
constructed near Dimapur R.S close to the Dimapur-Amguri road. The produce from
Dimapur and Kohima area should be initially transported and stored in this depot.
Thereafter, the produce may be transported by trucks to the Mill as and when required. The
average distance of haul from Dimapur and Kohima area is estimated at 50 km and the
distance of the Mill at Tuli from Dimapur by the National Highway via Tinsukia will be
approximately 220 km.

Raw Material Handling & Storage

NPPC Mill at Tuli has about 105 acre of land at 19th Mile location by the side of NH-61 for
bamboo storage yard. The Mill also has a raw material storage yard of approximately 12
acres inside the Mill premises. Bamboo in the form of bundles from the 19th Mile storage
yard will be transported up to the Mill site by means of truck load and loaded, stacked in the
raw material storage yard with the help of pay loaders. There will be approximately 7-8 days
storage inside the Mill. The bamboo bundles will be further transported and stacked in front
of the bamboo washing flumes by pay loaders. These bamboo bundles will be further fed to
the flume by mechanical means (pay loaders).

1.4 Bamboo Pulp Mill

As mentioned elsewhere before, only bamboo will be used as the fibrous raw material and
as such there will be no reed pulping street in the proposed revival scheme. The equipment
which were used for reed processing will now be hooked up with the bamboo pulping unit
as per the process requirements. The upgradation and retrofitting of the existing pulp Mill for
the production of 100% bamboo pulp of desired quantity and quality have been summarized

   a) Chip Preparation Plant

        It is recommended to replace all the equipment of bamboo and reed chip
        preparation plant with new set of equipment. The bamboo in the form of bundles will
        be stacked in the bamboo storage yard and fed to the bamboo flume by means of
        pay loader. The approximate length of bamboo bundles has been considered as
        1.83 m. After washing in the flume, the bamboo bundles will be fed to the chippers
        through inclined chain conveyor. It is proposed to install seven (7) no. Chippers,
        each of 15.0 MT per hour capacity to meet the total requirement of bamboo chips
        for the production of pulp in the revival scheme. Each chipper will have a chain feed
        conveyors of 2500 mm width.

        Six(6) no. chippers will be in operation and one(1) will be kept as standby for knife
        changing. The chip preparation plant will operate in two(2) shifts per day.

        At the downstream of the chipper two(2) no. vibrating screens of 45.0 MT per hour
        capacity each, will be installed for separation of oversized and undersized chips.
        One screen will be in operation while the other will be used as standby. The
        bamboo chips from the chipper will be blown to a cyclone separator for separation
        of dust and fed to the screens through a 800 mm wide belt conveyor. The screened

chip of desired size (approximately 25 mm long) will be transported and stored in
the chip silo with the help of a 800 mm wide belt conveyor.

The oversized chips from the chip screens will be fed to a rechipper of capacity 6.0
MT per hour for further reduction of chip length. The chips from the rechipper will be
blown to a cyclone separator for dust separation before it is fed back to the chip
screen for further screening. The undersized chips along with saw dust from the
chip screen will be conveyed pneumatically to a set of cyclone separators where the
dusts are emitted to the atmosphere and the heavier chips will be stored outside the
chip preparation area for disposal.

The screened chips will be uniformly discharged into the chip silo through a 800 mm
wide reversible belt conveyor. From the chip silo, chips will be further fed to chip
washer by means of another 800 mm wide belt conveyor. The washed chips will be
further transported to the stationary type digesters by means of a long 800 mm wide
belt conveyor.

b) Digester Plant

The existing Mill has only three(3) no. of stationary batch digester each of 70 m 3
capacity. These three(3) no. digesters cannot produce adequate quantity of cooked
pulp required in the revival scheme. Since the tumbling digesters cannot be used for
processing of bamboo chips additional six(6) no. stationary batch digesters along
with external liquor heaters, liquor circulation pumps, associated piping, fittings,
valves, condensate removal system etc. have been proposed. The cooked pulp
from the existing three (3) no. bamboo digesters will be blown to the existing
bamboo blow tank of 200 m 3 capacity as usual, whereas six(6) new digesters of 70
m 3 capacity will be hooked up with a new blow tank of 250 m 3 capacity. The existing
tumbling digesters may, however, be used as a liquor storage tank. The heat
released from the blown vapour from both the blow tanks would be recovered in the
existing blow heat recovery plant along with a new unit for generation of clean hot
water required for the process.

c) Deknotting & Screening Plant

Existing Screening & Cleaning Plant is not energy efficient and cannot produce
desired quality of pulp required for the target products quality. Moreover, the
existing vibratory knotters in Bamboo Street are all broken. It is, therefore,
suggested to install a new Deknotting & Screening Plant of state-of-the-art
technology. In the proposed plant, the cooked bamboo pulp from blow tanks shall
first be fed to 80 m 3 intermediate stock chest which in turn shall feed the stock to a
combi-type pressure screen for separation of knots and accepted stock. The knots
from the combi-screen shall then be dewatered in a coarse screen via a junk trap
for protection of the screen basket. While the knots from the coarse screen shall be
fed back to digesters, the liquor shall be returned to the intermediate stock chest.
The rejects stock from the combi-screen shall further be processed in a secondary
pressure screen. While the rejects from the screen shall be drained, the accepts
shall be fed to vibratory screen followed by sand cleaners for sand removal.

d) Washing Plant

The filtering area of each drum filter in bamboo street is only 200 sq.ft whereas that
for reed street is 300 sq.ft. Since the total area is inadequate for processing of
desired quantity of cooked pulp and the conditions of the existing washers are not
good, it is, suggested that the screened pulp from the new combi-screen shall first

            be processed in new drum washers, replacing the existing units for pre-washing.
            The washed pulp from pre- washers will be stored in 40 m 3 capacity existing
            intermediate washed stock chest from where it will be sent to a new proposed press
            washer for subsequent final washing. In the washing plant the pulp will be washed
            with the filtrate available from the subsequent post washer in oxygen delignification
            plant which will give better washing and also yield more black liquor solids per ton of
            washed pulp.

            e)    Oxygen Delignification & Post Washing Plant

            In this plant, the washed pulp from the press washer, which will ensure high fiber
            consistency and will provide an efficient lock against excessive dissolved organic
            materials to the system, will be diluted to around 12-15% consistency in a shredder-
            repulper- conveyor. This medium consistency pulp after heating in a pulp heater will
            be fed to a pressurized oxygen reactor of SS 316 make for oxygen delignification at
            around 90 O to 100 OC. The stock is then blown to a blow tank, which will finally be
            washed in a new press washer. The washed delignified stock shall be stored in
            existing HD storage towers wherefrom it shall be pumped to subsequent bleaching

            f)   Bleaching Plant

            In the new bleaching plant, the O 2 delignified and thickened pulp will be
            subsequently bleached to desired brightness through D O-EOP-D1 bleaching

     1.5 Paper Machine & Finishing House

        So far the net production capability of the Paper Machines is concerned, it may be
        mentioned that with specific upgradation / retrofit of the existing facilities/ system, along
        with new addition, the combined output from both the machines may be increased upto
        200 FTPD approx. The suggested product-mix (machinewise) has been presented

        In order to achieve above target production of paper, plant/ section wise major
        renovation/ upgradation/ addition as envisaged have been described herein below:

a)   MF Machine Production Line

      Stock Preparation and Approach Flow System

        In order to meet the augmented demand of pulp for MF machine, new equipment like 2
        No. DD refiners, deflaker, chest with agitator etc. will be installed as may be necessary.
        Since present market demands higher degree of cleanliness of Xerox copier paper, it
        has been proposed to replace existing inefficient Bird‟s centricleaners with modern and
        more efficient 4-stage cleaners along with Deculator & Pressure Screen in Approach
        Flow System. Addition/ augmentation of capacity of any existing equipment/ system
        shall be taken into consideration during basic/ detailed engineering stages.

      MF Paper Machine

        In this Section, to enable this Machine to compete with major Paper Mills, major retrofits
        of wet end comprising new modern hydraulic Head box, Top Former on Fourdrinier part,
        Tri-nip press replacing the existing press section have been planned.
        Dryer Section has been augmented to cater additional production.
        Existing steam and condensate system of the MF machine will be upgraded for the
        proposed increase in production along with calender stack.
        Cleaning/ overhauling/ replacement of missing or damaged parts/ components/ retrofit/
        upgradation/ installation of new equipment as and wherever necessary shall be done in
        case of balance machine auxiliaries viz., vacuum system, hood and ventilation, COL
        system, etc. It is recommended to replace felt dryers in the MF Machine by pocket
        ventilation system comprising hot air supply fan along with necessary blow boxes.
        Extension of hood has also been proposed for the additional dryers. It is important to
        mention that all instruments – pneumatic and panel mounted electric controls are either
        damaged or missing from head box control panel through pope reel control panel. New
        electronic field instruments through DCS/QCS controls have been planned.

        Proposed machine drive system (mechanical & electrical) needs to be replaced with
        sectional drive for the revised duty (speed) condition.

b)    MG Machine Production Line

      Stock Preparation and Approach Flow

        In stock preparation system of MG machine, the existing reed pulp refiners would be
        utilized for refining bamboo pulp along with new feed pump. 3-stage centricleaners in
        Approach Flow System shall be replaced with efficient new 3-stage cleaners. However,
        pipes, fitting, valves, all pumps and motors, instruments and controls, electrical and
        control panels, etc. require thorough renovation/ retrofit/ overhauling. Further addition/
        capacity augmentation as may be necessary, shall be carried out on finalization of basic
        engineering of the Project.

      MG Paper Machine

        Since the MG machine is lying idle for almost last two decades, it is absolutely essential
        that the entire machine is thoroughly inspected, particularly its rotating parts. Surface
        grinding is necessary for most of the rolls along with dynamic balancing including
        overhauling, replacement of defective bearing/ bearing housing as well as any other
        components/ parts that would be ascertained during actual execution of the job. In view
        of 1988 earthquake, it is proposed to check the alignment of the machine, check
        soleplate condition and leveling and then take corrective measure before start up of the
        machine. In dryer part also drying cylinders are to be cleaned and ground.

      Necessary modification of various sections of the Machine would be necessary for
      increased speed of operation (@ 400 m/min) covering retrofit/ upgradation of Head box,
      Forming part and Press part.

      Among MG machine auxiliaries, steam and condensate system requires installation of
      new condensate separators and pumps, relocation of main condensate collecting tank
      and new instruments and controls through DCS.

      Cleaning/ overhauling/ replacement of missing or damaged parts/ components/ retrofit/
      upgradation as and wherever necessary shall be done in case of balance machine
      auxiliaries viz., vacuum system, hood and ventilation, COL system etc. It is important to
      mention that all instruments – pneumatic and panel mounted electric controls are either
      damaged or missing from headbox control panel through pope reel control panel which
      are proposed to be replaced with new electronic field instruments through DCS controls.

      So far the machine drive is concerned, the complete system (mechanical & electrical)
      needs to be upgraded/ replaced with efficient drive control systems and revised duty
      (speed) condition.

c) Finishing & Product Warehouse

      There exists mainly two (2) slitter-winders and three(3) sheet cutters of identical design
      in the finishing house besides a guillotine machine and some finishers‟ table (wooden).
      As discussed earlier, all the equipment of this section shall have to be inspected,
      thoroughly cleaned and overhauled and retrofit/ replaces the missing items including
      drive and control system before put into operation.

      Besides, about 67 per cent of MF machine output is proposed to be marketed in cut-
      sheets size after proper packing. Therefore, a fully automatic A4 cut size sheeting line
      integrated with packaging unit shall be installed within the finishing house mainly for
      Xerox copier paper. A semi-automatic reel wrapping line shall also be installed to handle
      reel wrapping for both the machines. The end product after inspection, counting/
      weighing, a labeling shall be stored in the Product Warehouse before despatch.

d) Chemical Additives Preparation Plant (CAPP)

      CAPP was supplied by Cellier. The major activity involves is the relocation of the talcum
      dissolver along with partly mechanized talcum handling and feeding sys tem. All control
      panels of this section are to be shifted to a dust-free air-conditioned room.

      The bottom part of the existing alum dissolver shall be modified. Acid-proof tile lining
      also to be done along with a wooden cage with false bottom.
      It is proposed to use fortified rosin emulsion which would be more economical in
      comparison to conventional solid rosin.

e)   Fiber Recovery and Broke Handling System

      Both the machines have dedicated disc-saveall and broke handling system. The overall
      systems shall have to be upgraded for increased production requirement, which
      envisages installation/ augmentation of saveall, deflaker, pumps, etc.

      In the Fibre Recovery system excess white water from the machine along with
      sweetener stock is fed to the Disc Filter. The recovered fibre after consistency control is
      taken to the Blending chest. Cloudy water is used in adjusting the consistency whereas

   the balance is recirculated to the Disc filter feed line and the clarified water is used in
   machine showers.

  In Broke Handling street, wet end and dry end broke is taken into a Broke Chest. The
  broke pulp in the desired proportion is taken to the Blending chest via a Stock Master

  The overall instrumentation & control systems shall be updated with new installations.

1.6 Chemical Recovery Complex

  a) Evaporator Plant

       The original Evaporator Plant is designed for 58.5 TPH Water Evaporation capacity
       with inlet concentration of black liquor at 13% (w/w) with feed rate of 78,800 kg/hr
       (73 m 3/hr) at 80OC. Weak black liquor feed condition to be maintained with the
       following parameters:
       Fibre Content in WBL                       15 PPM
       CaO                                        1.5%
       SiO2 Concentration                         4.0%
       Na2SO4                                     5.0%
       WBL production rate after upgradation of Mill‟s production capacity is estimated at
       2,500 TPD (2,320 m 3/day) with inlet concentrating of 15% (w/w) corresponding to
       production of 235 BDTPD of washed pulp. WBL feed rate to the evaporator shall be
       around 113.5 TPH (105 m 3/hr). The evaporation rate for this production with 10%
       spill recovery margin is estimated as 87.5 TPH. In order to augment the water
       evaporation capacity of the plant, it is proposed to install a new Falling Film Free
       Flow Plate type Evaporator Plant of 30 TPH water evaporation capacity with all
       accessories. The heating element of the proposed plant shall be of SS-316 whereas
       all wetted parts shall be of SS-304/SS-304 clad. Evaporator 1st and 2nd effect
       calendria and separator of existing plant are in CS construction and tubes are of SS
       304. Thorough cleaning of these tubes and calendria is required. Concentrator‟s
       tube and calendrias are of SS 304 and CS construction needs cleaning to avoid
       fouling of heat transfer area. Evaporator 3 rd, 4th, 5th & 6th body calendria and tubes
       are of CS construction needs cleaning and damaged tubes to be replaced. Surface
       condenser, pre-cooler, inter-condenser tube cleaning is required with replacement
       of the damaged tubes. Overhauling of the whole plant including pumps, valves are
       required. Instrumentation system is to be reinstalled to make the plant operable.
       Electrical system is also to be reinstalled partially.

  b)   Recovery Boiler Plant

        In the proposed revival and upgradation of NPPC Mill, the Mill has to handle maxm.
        376 TPD of black liquor solids. In order to retrofit/ upgrade the existing boiler to
        handle such high amount of BLS, major modifications are required:
       In addition to the above, the structural steel works and operating platforms need
       thorough modifications due to increased furnace depth, strengthening and/ or
       replacements. Moreover assessment of modification requirements and estimation of
       plant residual life, particularly for pressure parts of the boiler, are time consuming
       affairs and require stringent statutory approvals from the concerned authorities.
       Apart from the above technical considerations, the retrofit/ upgradation of the
       existing unit shall not call for any appreciable capital saving.
       Considering all these aspects, it is suggested to install a new Recovery Boiler along
       with ESP with installed capacity to handle 380 TPD of BLS replacing the existing

  c)    Causticizing Plant

         The existing plant capacity is 45 TPD of Active Alkali as Na 2O. For the proposed
         revival and upgradation scheme, it has been estimated that the Mill would require
         around 89 TPD of active alkali as Na2O to produce 240 BDTPD of cooked pulp,
         design. In order to upgrade the existing plant to produce required quantity of white
         liquor, it is proposed to install a new identical plant with necessary hook-up facilities.
         However, general overhauling of the existing plant is required to make it operable.

1.7 Chemical Plants

   a)    Oxygen Generation Plant

         The oxygen required for the pulping process will be produced in the Mill itself. The
         oxygen will be produced from air by pressure/ vacuum swing process by selective
         separation of nitrogen and oxygen in molecular sieves. The generated oxygen @
         around 90% purity shall be compressed to desired pressure in a separate
         compressor and stored in a receiver from where required quantity of O 2 shall be
         supplied to the Pulp Mill. The rated capacity of the oxygen generation plant shall be
         6 Tonnes/ day to meet the Mill‟s requirement.

   b)    Chlorine Dioxide Generation Plant

         Like oxygen, the chlorine dioxide required for the pulp bleaching process will be
         produced in the Mill itself. The chlorine dioxide will be produced by reduction of
         electrolysis product sodium chlorate with hydrochloric acid. The generated chlorine
         dioxide, from the generator, along with chlorine will be absorbed in absorber(s) with
         chilled water for the production of chlorine dioxide solution at 5-6 gpl concentration.
         The spent chlorate solution from the generator containing sodium chloride and
         depleted electrolysis will be returned to the electrolysis cells where it will again be
         converted to strong sodium chlorate solution. The sniff chlorine gas from the
         absorber will be scrubbed suitably for disposal. The rated capacity of the chlorine
         dioxide generation plant shall be 4.5 tonnes/ day of ClO 2 to meet the Mill‟s

   1.8 Steam & Power Plant

         The existing coal fired boilers are in such a condition that retrofitting and
         reuse is not recommended. Therefore, new boilers of required capacities
         have been envisaged.
         The existing TG being old and inefficient, its further utilization is not recommended
         due to techno-economic consideration.
          In order to reduce the operating cost it is also proposed to install a new TG set,
          double extraction cum condensing type without taking into account use of the
          existing TG set. The condenser section of this TG set shall also be sized in such a
          way so as to ensure sustainability of operation in the event of any abnormalities
          and/ or any fluctuations in the process system.
         Important parameters of the above scheme are indicated below
         1) 3 No. coal fired boilers, each of 60 TPH, appears to be the most
             optimum choice – normally two will be operating and one will be kept as
             standby. These two, along with the new Recovery Boiler, can cater to

     the full steam-cum-power requirement of the plant as per the heat
     balance diagram.
2)   The average electric power requirement to the tune of 15 MW shall be
     made available from the new TG set of 18 MW capacity. The peak
     requirement of the plant, which is around 17.5 MW can also be met by
     dumping additional steam in the condenser to raise the power capacity
     by another 3.0 MW.

The new equipment/ modifications required
 3 No. coal fired boilers with ESP and chimney are to be installed
     replacing the existing boilers.
 Main steam line and a new header shall be installed.
 The proposed new TG set to be installed.
 Headers and other pipeline of the old unit to be utilised as far as
     possible, after health study.

    Cooling Tower is to be retrofitted and CW system is to be upgraded for
     cooling load for the TGs.
    Coal Handling Plant requires retrofitting and revamping to convert the
     present system useful for fluidiser technology.
    Ash Handling system is to be added new.

GAIL were informed that considering 100% requirement of fuel for the Project
to be met from natural gas, estimated quantum of gas works out to be
approx. 60 million standard cu.m per annum. As revealed during discussion,
presently GAIL is not in a position to meet such huge quantity of gas to the
Mill at Tuli from any nearby sources. Small amount of natural gas as
available at Gelaky/ Amguri has already been committed to other consumers.
Hence it appears that GAIL would not be in a position to meet the
requirement of the Project in near future.

It is recommended that the type of boilers to be procured new shall be
suitable for fluidised bed combustion (FBC) .to achieve the following:
1) The proposed modification will ensure that the new boilers will be able to
    burn the coal of varying nature.
2) The chemical composition of coal indicates tha t sulphur content in coal
    will be the tune of 5 – 8% maximum.               With FBC type, bed
    desulphurisation can be effected by injecting lime feeding, thus ensuring
    desulphurisation ad consequent elimination of corrosion and pollution.

Considering above, it is suggested to use 3 no. new boilers of FBC design,
each of 60 TPH capacities. The existing boiler house has to be extended to
accommodate the new boilers.

1) Installation of 3 No. new FBC boilers (preferably multi-fuel type) with ESP
   and chimney, each of 60 TPH capacity, generating steam at 62 kg/cm2g
   at 450oC.
2) Installation of a new 18.0 MW double extraction – condensing TG set
   suitable for inlet steam @ 61 kg/cm2g, 450OC.

   3) MP and LP extraction steam quantity and pressure from new TG shall be
      about 31 TPH @ 11.5 kg/cm2g and 70 TPH @ 4.5 kg/cm2g respectively.

   4) Condensing section of the new turbine will normally 33 TPH but designed
      for 60 TPH during dump condition so that be the power available from TG
      set remains undisturbed at 15 MW rating even when LP process steam is
      reduced by 25 TPH.

   5) Construction of a new TG building adjacent to the old TG building.

   6) Retrofitting the coal handling system to revamp to the needs of fluidizing
      bed boiler. Apart from general overhauling, this will require construction
      of a new crusher house and installation of new crushers/screens along
      with installation of recirculation system.

   7) Ash Handling System to be installed new by installing dense phase

   8) Interconnecting piping, valves, fittings, etc. to be retrofitted as far as
      possible and supplemented by balance quantities. Details of the required
      bill of materials can be worked out after RLA study of interconnected
      piping, to be performed during execution stage.

  9) DM plant to be relocated and necessary inte rconnection to be made.

  10) Overhauling and retrofitting of Cooling Tower and CW pumps.

1.9 Electrical Power Supply & Distribution System

a) Estimated Power Demand

   Section wise estimated power demand for proposed revival and upgradation
   plan has been presented below:

   Sl.   Description                                        Estimated Power
   No.                                                      Demand (A vg.),
   1.    Raw Material Handling & Chip Preparation Plant           800
   2.    Bamboo Pulp Mill                                        2,400
   3.    Paper Machine (PM # 1 & 2) Complex                      4,400
   4.    Chemical Recovery Plant                                 2,500
   5.    Chemical Plant (ClO2 & O2)                              1,600
   6.    Water Supply, Treatment & Distribution                   400
   7.    Effluent Treatment & Disposal                            300
   8.    Steam & Power Plant (incl. CHP, AHP, Compressor         1,700
         Hous e, Plant Illumination etc.)
   9.    Township                                                900

         Total :                                              15,000 kW

     Above Table shows that estimated average power demand for the proposed
     systems is 15,000 kW and peak demand would be around 17,500 kW, based
     on revival and upgradation plan as envisaged.

b) Supplementary Source of Captive Power

     Keeping in view the unreliable and poor quality of power being supplied
     through grid, it is proposed to install a captive power plant for the Mill to cater
     its entire power requirement. This will include one (1) no. New Turbo-
     Generator unit of 18 MW capacity.
     Under the augmentation programme it is proposed that the new Captive
     Power Plant shall be located beside the existing Power House to evacuate
     power to different plants from one place. The grid power supply properly
     refurbished shall remain connected with provision for synchronisation. The
     existing TG connection shall be removed. The Mill load shall be catered only
     through new turbo-generator which shall always run in „island‟ mode.

c)   Power Distribution System

      The new generator will be directly coupled to new turbo-alternator and will
      have a nominal rating of 18 MW at 0.80 pf (lag). Generation voltage will be
      11 kV with a variation of 5%, three phases, 50 Hz and will be connected
      directly to new 11 kV switchgear.
      The voltage levels for distribution have been retained to match with existing
      voltage levels, viz., 11,000 Volt, 3,300 Volt, and 415 Volt. The DC facilities
      shall be new in each load centre as applicable.
      The transformers which are clofen or synthetic oil filled shall be replaced with
      mineral oil filled transformers.
      For new Boilers, the Boiler auxiliaries like ESP, ID Fan, FD Fan, Ash
      Handling Plant, Boiler Feed pumps etc. will be fed from an auxiliary
      transformers. For Coal Handling Plant, the power supply will be retained as it
      is. Power supply to Turbine auxiliaries will be augmented from a new
      The above new station auxiliary system will be fed from the auxiliary
      transformers through adequate number of HT & LT switchgears, HT/LT
      transformers. In addition to above, each of auxiliary system will have its own
      requirement of electrical equipment/ devices e.g. motors, power control
      centres and/or motor control centres for further distribution of power,
      wherever necessary, control panel/ desks, limit switches, power & control
      cables for distribution within the system itself, local control stations etc.
     The entire Mill power shall be controlled from the new Power House. This
     new 11 kV bus centrally will cater the total load of the Mill for power supply
     and distribution system. Two (2) nos. Section Bus as per original design had
     been kept unaltered on new 11000 V system.

     For addition of new chippers, one(1) no. 11 kV/ 433V, 2500 kVA, Dyn 11
     transformer is required to be installed near Chipper House. These will cater
     the load of new 7 nos. (6+1) chipper motor. A lso, for new ClO2 plant rectifier
     transformer shall be installed near new plant to meet the new plant load

  The new switchboard shall be of SF 6/ Vacuum Circuit breakers. The new
  switchgear shall be installed in new Power House switchgear room , The
  proposed normal operation of the Mill shall be based on the new turbo-
  generator running in „island‟ mode. Considering the availability of total power
  from new turbo-alternator, the distribution of power with respect to load as
  existing will be there except all connection to respective Transformers and
  Substations shall be only through overhead cables. New breaker panels are
  proposed mainly with an assumption due to non-availability of existing
  breaker module.      Normal operation shall be TG Bus and Grid Bus not
  connected. For effective relay co-ordination 1:1 Generator Transformers are
  envisaged. The new Generator shall be grounded by one (1) no neutral
  grounding transformer and neutral grounding resistors shall connect the
  secondary side of the Generator.

d) Generator

    The new Generator will be a two pole direct-connected three phase unit for
    18 MW at 0.80 pf lag, 50 Hz with wood yard 505 digital Governor system.
    The nominal voltage rating will be in the order of 11 kV with variation upto 
    5%. The generator neutral will be grounded through neutral grounding
    transformer and neutral of Generator Transformer shall be grounded by
    neutral grounding resistor of 5.12 Ohm, 1250 A, 10 Sec rating to limit the
    ground fault current.
    The generator will be CACW cooled. The generator shall be suitable for
    hunting load of approx. 2 MW for a period of 3 times in a minute‟s time
    during paper break condition. The generator excitation system shall be
    either PMG and/ or static excitation system to provide the following basic

    Maintain the generator terminal voltage constant within 5% of the preset
     value over the entire load range of the machine.

    The response time shall be short so that automatic voltage regulator
     (AVR) can control the generator during system disturbances or transient
     in which rapid changes in excitation are required to maintain system
     reliability margins both in steady state and transient condition.

    Generator shall be suitable to feed the power for Chipper Motor as well as
     Rectifier Transformer for ClO2 Plant.

    Considering the problem of sparking in slip ring brushes and consequent
    maintenance, preference will be given to brush less excitation system with

    The ultimate aim of the excitation system selection will be to achieve ideal
    features in respect of rate of response, simplicity, reliability, accuracy and
    sensitivity. The power supply to unit auxiliaries will be given from 11 kV bus
    located inside Power House. During start-up or shut down, auxiliary power,
    both at HT & LT, will be drawn from the DG Sets (1 new + 1 existing) supply

      through 1 MVA, 0.4 kV/ 11 kV bi-directional, step up Transformers. The
      exact DG capacity shall be decided for Black start facility and safe shut
      down power requirement. The DG sets sha ll run in parallel and in
      synchronisation provided the characteristics of old DG set matches with
      proposed new DG set. The existing DG set capability has to be established
      during subsequent design stage for staring the largest HT Motor during this period.
      The 11 kV Power House bus system will be further stepped down to 3.3 kV by
      11kV/3.3 kV step-down Transformer and to 415 V by suitable 11kV/415V

      In future, the possibility of utilizing NED Grid Power along with existing TG
      sets in future while operating in synchronisation with the new Turbo-
      alternator shall be reviewed later subject to improvement in Grid Power
      supply (both for quality and quantity).

     For power supply to new Turbine/Boiler auxiliaries, the new HT/LT
     Transformers will be utilized along with a new 11 kV/415V transformer for
     new Turbine auxiliaries with off-circuit tap changer to accommodate voltage
     variation of 5% in steps of 2.5% per tap.

     The existing transformer filled with synthetic oil shall be replaced with
     conventional pollution friendly mineral oil filler transformer or dry type
     transformer which will be decided during implementation.

e) H.T. Switchgear

     The entire power will be received at new 11 kV Bus from new Turbo-
     alternators and then will be fed to 11 kV/ 3.3 kV switchgear at respective
     plant premises, viz Pulp Mill, Paper Machines, Soda Recovery plants, Water
     Treatment etc. through suitable circuit breakers for further distribution to high
     voltage motors and to the existing substations & transformers intended to
     step down this voltage to 415 Volts. Breakers will control these feeders,
     along with necessary protection for the intended purpose. The interrupting
     capacity of 11 kV & 3.3 kV has been kept identical with capacity i.e. 40 kA for
     3 secs.

f)   Protective & Measuring System

     For protection of equipment against abnormal system conditions, adequate
     protective devices will be installed in the respective switchgears and/or
     control panels. In all cases, proper discrimination would be achieved so as
     to isolate the faulty elements only, keeping the healthy part of the system in
     service. The Mill will run solely on new turbo-generator, the system power
     factors shall be improved through LV capacitors, as required, connected at
     power control centre as Group Compensating device.

g) Intercommunication System

     The new intercommunication system proposed with 400-line auto exchange
     interplant telephone system within plant boundary limit to facilitate plant

     operation by establishing quick communication among the operating
     personnel at various locations of the plant.

h) Illumination System

     It is recommended to provide floodlights at suitable locations to achieve
     requisite level of illumination. Pole mounted high-pressure sodium/ mercury
     vapour lamp fixtures will be used for approach and work road. Automatic
     switch operated by timer or photocell may be used for outdoor illumination

i)   11 kV Bus Duct Power & Control Cables

     The new 18 MW turbo-alternators shall be connected with 11000 V phase-
     segregated bus duct along with lightning arrestor and surge protective
     All 11 kV & 3.3 kV cables will be stranded aluminum conductor, heavy duty
     XLPE insulated, extruded PVC inner sheathed, each core screened on
     conductor as well as on insulation, single round galvanised steel wire/tape
     armoured (for multicore cable only). The cables will be suitable for unearthed
     system. For single core cables, single round aluminium armour wire will be
     used. The use of existing cables shall be reviewed during implementation.
     The LT cables will be 600 V/1100 V grade with stranded aluminium
     conductor, HRPVC insulated, extruded PVC inner sheathed, single round
     galvanised steel wire armoured (for multi-core cables only). The cables
     would be suitable for earthed system. Transformers of rating more than 1000
     kVA at 415 V shall also connected with 415 V non-segregated bus duct.
     Control cables, will be multi-core 600 V/1100 V grade PVC insulated, PVC
     sheathed, single round steel wire armoured with PVC outer sheath with 2.5
     sq. mm stranded copper conductor.
     For central control system, 1100 V grade, extruded PVC insulated, annealed
     tinned braided Copper wire Screened, cables of 1.5 mm 2, stranded, and
     tinned annealed Copper Conductor.

j)   Plant DC System

     A reliable DC power source is envisaged for new captive Power Plant and
     also for other plants including water intake substation which are required to
     function on a loss of AC power for security, protection and safe shut down of

k)   Emergency Power Supply System

     The existing and new DG sets of suitable capacity shall be utilised to permit
     a safe shut down of the unit in the event of plant black out. In addition, DG
     set shall provide power to meet the requirement for safety of personnel and
     part illumination system during the black out. (i.e. loss of Captive Power
     Plant). For start up of the plant, both the DG sets shall be started and shall
     run parallel to start new Turbo-alternator only.

   l)     33 kV Switchyard
         The Switchyard improvement needs to be taken care of including change of
         transformer, if not filled with mineral oil. As there was no certainty of power
         availability from the Grid, this aspect shall be reviewed further during
         implementation stage. However, total refurbishing of switchyard components
         as required for its further use.

 1.10 Water Supply, Treatment & Distribution

           Total water demand for the Mill and colony for production of 200 TPD t
           would be achieved after proposed revival and upgradation activity, is
           estimated to be 25 MLD. Out of this, potable water demand for Mill and
           township would be about 350 m3/day. As the river intake pumps, water
           treatment plant and distribution system have adequate capacity, no
           additional equipment would be required if the existing plant is thoroughly
           reconditioned and all original equipment are placed in their respective
           positions. However, construction of a 2(m) high weir would be necessary
           across the river to ensure required water supply to the Mill.
           Make up demineralised water requirement for boiler after capacit y
           augmentation of the Mill would be about 58 m3/hr which can be catered
           from the existing DM Plant. Existing two chains of pressure filter, cation
           exchanger and anion exchanger along with one mixed bed exchanger will
           be able to meet the future make up water requirement of boiler. Third chain
           will remain as regeneration standby. However, filter media, ion exchange
           resins and pipelines should be completely replaced by fresh stock and the
           plant thoroughly reconditioned to achieve desired quality and quantity of

1.11       Effluent Treatment & Disposal

           The total effluent generation in the Mill after capacity augmentation would
           be about 23 MLD. Pollution load of this effluent is expected to be lower than
           present system as elemental chlorine free bleaching is envisaged in
           upgradation plan. Existing plant has adequate capacity and will be capable
           of treating combined effluent after proposed upgradation.

1.12      Process Control & Automation

         The overall instrumentation and control systems of the Mill are of out-dated
         pneumatic design. These items need to be totally discarded for replacement
         with state-of-the-art micro-processor based Distributed Control System (DCS)
         The complete process operations in an integrated Pulp & Paper Mill requiring
         monitoring and control of different variables duly merit consideration for
         adoption of latest generation control systems with supporting hardware.

        Distributed Control System (DCS) will integrate various Closed Loop Control
        Sub-System (CLCS), Open Loop Control Sub-System (OLCS) and Monitoring
        & Information Sub-System (MIS) for the entire plant including monitoring of various
        offsite systems.

1.13 Infrastructure Facilities

   a) Non-Plant Buildings
      With the execution of the repair/ maintenance work described therein the
      condition of the non-plant buildings would be suitable for use during the
      proposed revival and upgradation plan of the Mill. The sizes of the existing
      non-plant buildings seems to be adequate for operation of the plant under the
      revamping scheme.

   b) Offsite Facilities
    Roads
      With the completion of construction of National Highway (NH-61), the Mill will
      have the improved approach road from NH-37. However, there is a bridge
      enroute which does not meet the „AA‟ classification. The inplant roads which
      are presently damaged are to be augmented for smooth movement of
      material and personnel. Necessary development of berm, drainage system,
      street lighting are to be taken up simultaneously. Necessary repair work on
      the township roads proposed and to be taken up immediately.

    Railways
     The broad guage rail track from Amguri R.S. has been extended upto Tuli
     R.S. It is proposed to lay one more rail track for full rake load at Tuli R.S.
     with a cover storage facility. Adequate space is available at the existing yard
     at Tuli R.S. for developing the storage facility. The approach road from NH-
     61 upto Tuli R.S need to be metalled for facilitating road traffic movement.

      Water
       Adequate raw water would be available throughout the year from Melak river
       with the construction of approx. 2 M high weir on the river at the downstream
       of the intake point. It is important to mention that the concerned State
       Government authority may not sanction drawal of the river water from the
       upstream to any major consumer before catering to the need of the Mill.
       Necessary overhauling and reconditioning of the equipment in the intake
       pump house and the water treatment area is proposed for re-commissioning
       of the plant.

      Power
       Since the existing grid supply is not reliable it is proposed to have a self-
       sufficient power generation plant within the Mill area for supply of power to
       the Mill as well as township. Hence a new turbo-generator set is proposed to
       be added to the power generation system of the Mill.

       Township
       The number of existing residential and non-residential building and other
       infrastructural facilities in the township are adequate for the plant. However,
       it will be necessary to undertake the repair work of these houses prior to the
       main project work to accommodate the project people and constructional
       personnel to be located at the project site.

1.14     Plant Layout & Plot Plan
         The proposed new plants/ equipment can be located within the existing
         buildings/ facilities except for the following:

           Extension of the bamboo washing facility at the upstream of the bamboo
            chip preparation plant.
           Extension / Modification of Pulp Mill Building for installation of new
            digesters, washers, bleach towers, etc.
           Extension of Boiler House for installation of new boilers.
           Extension of Power House facility for a self-sufficient captive power
            generation plant.

   Bamboo Washing Flume
        The existing three(3) bamboo washing flumes are proposed to be
        demolished and a new set of seven(7) nos. washing flume of bigger size
        are to be installed for seven(7) bamboo chippers. The approximate size of
        each flume has been estimated as 6 m x 3 m.

   Pulp Mill
         The existing Pulp Mill Building will be suitably extended/ modified to
         accommodate new digesters, blow tank, washers, tankages, towers,
         heaters, mixers, pumps, etc.

   Boiler House
          The existing Boiler House is proposed to be extended on northern and
          eastern side to accommodate the new coal fired boilers. The size of the
          boiler house will approximately be 45 M X 30 M.

   TG Building
         The location of the new TG building has been proposed on the eastern
         side of the existing turbo-alternator house where adequate space is
         available for the proposed facility. The size of the proposed TG building
         will approximately be 23 m X 18 m with two(2) floors.

            The existing stores/ godown/ warehouse facilities are adequate for the
            production of the Mill after implementation of the revival scheme. These
            existing facilities will be tilized after necessary repair/ renovation work

1.15     Civil & Structural Works
           Present Condition
            As mentioned earlier, NPPC Mill at Tuli was constructed more than two
            decades ago and the existing facilities including plant/ non-plant buildings,
            superstructures, in-plant roads and drainage system, plant boundary,
            approach road and the township remained almost unattended so far as
            repair/ maintenance / upkeep are concerned. Mill has completely stopped
            operation since more than last ten years. Over and above of this, there
            was a huge earthquake in the region i n 1988, which has aggravated the
            deplorable conditions of some of these items.

       Based on limited visual inspection and observing the apparent physical
       conditions of various plant buildings and structures as well as in
       consideration with the soil condition/ climatological information, the study
       on civil and structural works have been carried out on preliminary basis.
       It would not be out of place to mention that some of the existing buildings
       and structures have been damaged due to seismic shocks over the years.
       Hence it is recommended to arrange for Non-Destructive Testing for
       Remaining Life Assessment of those buildings and present status of
       strength and properties of the structures. Following Non-Destructive
       Testing may be undertaken:
        Ultra sonography of concrete structures
        Impact Hammer test of concrete structures
        Core sampling and testing of concrete structures
        Depth of carbonation testing for concrete structures
        Reinforcement cover checking by cover meters.

       These tests may be carried out by Technical Institutions like IIT,
       Guwahati, Jorhat Engineering College, Assam Engineering College or any
       other competent agencies in this field.

1.16   Climatological Details

       The nearest climatological station of Indian Meteorological Department
       (IMD) from the Project site is located at Sibsagar. The major climatological
       parameters are as follows:
        Maxm. Dry Bulb Temperature               32.1OC
        Minm. Temperature                        10.2OC
        Annual Rein fall                         2323.5 mm
        Heaviest Rainfall in 24 hours            305.0 mm
        Humidity                                 67%
        Maxm. Wind Speed                         3.8 kmph
        Predominant Wind Direction               From North – East
       The Mill is located at Seismic Zone – V as per IS-1893.

 1.17 Drainage

       Being located in hilly terrain well above the highest flood level, the
       catchments automatically flows down to the foot hills draining to the
       nearby streams. Due to lack of maintenance and regular cleaning of
       drains within the plant and the township, damages of the road and others
       were noticed. During revamping of the plant, the original drainage scheme
       has to be restored so that these damages are contained.

1.18   Access

       The site is connected to the NH-37 by the newly converted NH-61 which is
       being constructed as per „AA‟ classification. However, there is a bridge
       enroute which falls short of the above classification. NH-61 gazes past the
       plant site and metalling of a small portion is only left. It was learnt that

          during original plant construction the equipment were transported by road.
          During operation also all the raw materials including bamboo, chemicals
          and finished product used to be moved by road. Further improvement of
          road network is essential to facilitate road transportation - an workable
          mode of material movement to meet the requirement of the plant.

          In-plant Road

          The in-plant roads were also not maintained for past ten years and require
          massive repair and maintenance. There is nearly 3 km of in-plant road of
          3.5 m and 5 m widths. These roads shall have to be augmented to meet
          the requirement of movement of men and materials. The roadside berm,
          drains and street lighting have to be redeveloped concurrently.

          Township Roads

          The road infrastructure inside the township spreading over 8 km of 5 m
          width require extensive repair and relaying work. The township being
          located at different levels of the hills, drainage along the road route has to
          be planned to avoid erosion. Deep erosion marks were noticed along the
          hilly roads which require adequate development to ensure road safety.

  1.19    Township

          Most of the residential and non-residential buildings require immediate
          repair/ maintenance. Many of the houses are also lying vacant. It would be
          necessary to undertake the repair works of those houses to be used for
          accommodating Mill operating personnel on minimum need basis.

  1.20    Construction Materials and Labourer

          Major works involved in civil and structural front are strengthening/ repair/
          replacement of damaged/-eroded sections of some of the plant and non-
          plant buildings as well as existing structures. Construction of new plant
          building would be required mainly for Chipper house, Digester, Boiler and
          TG buildings, Recovery Boiler etc. Some of the existing steel structures
          shall be replaced/ strengthened depending upon the present physical

          Various construction materials required like sand, stone chips, reinforcing
          steel, corrugated asbestos-cement sheets, structural steel and cement will
          mostly have to be brought from neighbouring states. Though unskilled
          labourer is locally available, some of the skilled/semi-skilled labourers may
          have to be provided from other States.

1.21      Transportation

         The Mill has adequate road connection from NH-37 by the newly converted
         NH-61. There is a broad gauge railway connection from Guwahati as well
         as Dibrugarh up to Tuli R.S. It has been proposed hereinbefore that one

          more rail track for full rake load has to be developed at Tuli R.S with a
          covered storage facility. It is also be necessary to construct an approach
          road from NH-61 up to Tuli R.S to facilitate transportation of materials . The
          mode of movement of materials from and to the Mill site has been
          presented below:

         Material                    Mode of Transport

         Fibrous Raw Materials       By Road

         Chemicals                   By rail upto Tuli R.S. and by Road from Tuli R.S.
                                     upto Mill site alternatively by road

         Fuels (Coal/ Furnace oil)   -do-

         Finished Products           Mostly by road upto Tuli R.S. and thereafter by
                                     Rail/ small amount by road

         Construction Material       Partly by Rail and balance by Road

         Equipment                   -do-

1.22 Equipment Selection

     The technology and equipment selections are based on the utilization of
     appropriate, modern technology and new equipment from reputable suppliers. In some
     cases, the technologies utilized are proprietary and no alternative supplier is

     For the balance of the equipment required, representative suppliers or specifications
     have been used for this report. Final evaluation of the equipment requirements and
     suppliers will be required, dependent on the results of detail design and firm price
     quotations for specific work scope.

     As a government enterprise, NPPC will go for procurement of plant & equipment
     through competitive bidding process. NPPC may also consider the MoU route as
     well as proprietary sourcing based on specific reasons. The DPR envisages that
     the latest technology equipment will be utilized

1.23 Project implementation Schedule – 24 MONTHS

     Mile stones for Project Execution are shown below. The project milestone schedule
     has been divided into 8 major activities of the project. 24 months is provided for the
     project implementation from the date of appointment of Project Management

       Basis of Estimates

       The plant capital cost estimates has been made in accordance with the mill
       configuration and processes described in the DPR.

       No allowance has been made in the estimates for the cost of acquisition of
       property since the work does not extend outside existing mill property boundaries.

       Estimates for domestic material are based on the use of Indian made equipment
       wherever available as appropriate technology of acceptable quality, except when
       imported equipment is judged to be available at a lower cost.
