Decentralized power gasifier installed
in the remote villages helps in providing electricity to villages,
which do not have access to grid. This helps in enhancing the quality
of life as it improves the education of children, provides employment
opportunities, and developes rural industries.
|Training of field
operators on producer gas engine operation
For the success of the system under field conditions,
it is important to train local operators for its installation,
operation, and regular maintenance. Accordingly,
during October 2003 , GV (Gram Vikas) field staff
was given hands-on training on gasifier system operation and maintenance
by TERI. Other field operators were trained during the system commissioning
at village Kanheiput in May 2004.
TERI has also provided training to operators
from different villages—Deodhara in Orissa, Jamera in Chhatisgarh
and Bhaogarh in Rajasthan—which helped to develop the capacity
of local operators for managing the system in the field and taking
care of trouble-shooting needs.
Recently in June
2006, TERI gave one week training to technician from gasifier
manufacturer from Sri Lanka, with whom TERI has signed MoU (Memorandum
of Understanding) for technology transfer.
Presently, TERI is preparing various training
modules for capacity building at various stages like operators,
manufacturers for system installation, operation, trouble shooting,
