India’s state-owned company Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured a $513m order to provide two 800MW supercritical steam generators (boilers) to NTPC.
NTPC will install the two 800MW steam generator (SG) island package at its Telangana Super Thermal Power Project (TnSTPP), located within the company’s Ramagundam Power Station in Karimnagar, Telangana, India.
The power to be produced from TnSTPP will be used to meet the demand for power in the state of Telangana.
Under the contract, BHEL will carry out designing, engineering, manufacture, supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning as well as civil works for the proposed SG island package.
Major equipments for the contract will be made at BHEL’s Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Jhansi and Bengaluru plants. The company’s power sector division will look after the civil works as well as erection and commissioning of the equipment.
So far, BHEL has provided more than 30,000MW capacity, including two supercritical units of 660MW each, to NTPC and its joint venture’s (JV) coal-based power plants.
The two supercritical units of 660MW capacity were commissioned in Barh, Bihar, India.
Additionally, BHEL is involved in around 8,000MW of NTPC and its JVs projects, which are under various stages of execution. As part of this involvement, BHEL has provided 14 supercritical steam generators and seven supercritical steam turbine generators to NTPC.
To date, BHEL has been contracted to provide 46 supercritical steam generators and 39 supercritical steam turbine generators and in the ongoing fiscal, the company has received a ten supercritical steam generators and eight supercritical steam turbine generators order.
Among the contracted supercritical sets, six steam generators and four steam turbine generators are already operational.
BHEL, in collaboration with NTPC and IGCAR, has created a national consortium to locally develop and commission 800MW Advanced Ultra Super Critical (AUSC) power plant in India under the National Mission on Clean Coal (Carbon) Technologies.
Recently, BHEL had won an order to build an 800MW supercritical set based thermal power project in Tamil Nadu, India.
