NTPC Bongaigaon (3 x 250 MW) in Assam has become the new nest for migratory birds. The ash dyke area of the region has become the preferred corner for the migratory birds, tucked amidst the lap of nature.
NTPC believes in maintaining a sustainable ecosystem and arrival of these migratory birds is testimony to the fact that apart from powering the nation, NTPC power plants also plays a pivotal role in conserving and preserving nature.
Sustainable and effective ash utilization is one of the top priority for NTPC. The station has made sincere efforts to capture movement of the new members of NTPC Bongaigaon through a short film, ‘Bringing Life to the Ashes’, on the occasion of World Migratory Birds Day. The film was released, virtually, among the internal audience by Sunil Kumar Satya, RED (ER-II) and BUH (Darlipalli) through MS Teams.
Various measures have been undertaken by the station for protecting, conserving and restoring the ecosystem which has become the nestling ground for more than 10 species of migratory birds. These birds can be seen flocking in the waters of the ash dyke area of the station, bringing life to the ashes.
With minimal human interference, these birds have chosen the bio-diversified region as their ‘winter home’.
