Energy Infra Post reported that NTPC Ltd has signed a memorandum of understanding with East Central Railway for transportation of fly ash under railways’ special freight train operator scheme. NTPC is the first entity in the country to sign an SFTO agreement with railways. The fly ash will be transported by bogey tank for alumina powder rakes, which are leakproof wagons with special air fluidizing system. As part of the agreement, NTPC has procured three BTAP rakes and each will have the capacity to carry 3,060 tonne ash. The first of the three rakes is expected to arrive by October this year.

Mr KK Singh, NTPC regional executive director (northern region) signed the MoU on behalf of NTPC.
