Required Training for Flexible Operation of Coal Fired Power Plants in India

With the rapid expansion of India´s renewable power plant capacities and the increasing complexity of power plant technology, the need for standardized and customized high-quality personnel training throughout the industry is evident. The necessity of training is based on clear recommendations described in this report.
The recommended training plan covers a wide range of technical topics for different design types of coal fired power plants. Specific simulator training enables participants to actively and purposefully apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in theory. The developed training program strictly adheres to all occupational safety requirements. Environmental protection and resource conservation standards as well as business-specific demands in the fields of operations, planning, maintenance and repairs are observed.
“Train and instruct the Trainer” will be an important part to prepare Indian trainers for the future challenges in the power generation market during the transition phase.
