The commissioning is the second at the Sri Damodaram Sanjeevaiah thermal power plant (SDSTPP), which is located at Krishnapatnam in the south Indian state. Commissioning for the first 800MW boiler at the same facility was carried out in August last year.

Andhra Pradesh Power Development Company (APPDCL), a 50-50 joint venture entity formed by APGENCO and IL AND FS, is the developer for the project.

BHEL was responsible for manufacturing, supplying, erecting, testing, and commissioning of the boilers and associated auxiliaries, including electrostatic precipitators (ESPs).

Key equipment for the project was manufactured by the Indian firm at its facilities in Trichy, Hyderabad, Ranipet and Bengaluru.

BHEL’s Power Sector for the southern region was responsible for the construction of the project.

The eco-friendly project features supercritical technology. It is likely to have reduced coal consumption, BHEL informed.

Up until now, BHEL had received orders for 36 sets of supercritical boilers, out of which only four has been commissioned.
