Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has bagged two major orders for emission control equipment from Telangana State Power Generation Corporation Ltd (TSGENCO). Valued at Rs 1000 Crore, the orders involve supply and installation of flue gas desulfurisation (FGD) systems for control of SOx emissions at TSGENCO’s one 800 MW Kothagudem thermal coal power plant (TPP) and four 270 MW Bhadradri TPS in Telangana.
The order for Bhadradri TPS also includes modification in boiler and electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) to meet the revised emission norms. BHEL is presently executing these projects on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.
The Indian power sector has seen an uptick in the ordering of emission control equipment due to the revised and more stringent emission norms notified by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. This calls for installation of emission control equipment in both existing, as well as new, thermal power projects.
Reaffirming its commitment towards a better environment, BHEL is offering customised solutions for Indian thermal power plants to meet these revised emission norms.
BHEL has already been a major player in this area for more than a decade. The company was one of the earliest entrants in the Indian market for emission control equipment, having successfully executed the FGD system at Tata Power’s Trombay Unit 8 in 2008. BHEL is also currently installing FGD systems at NTPC’s three 250 MW Bongaigaon project and two 490 MW Dadri project, TSGENCO’s five 800 MW Yadadri project, PVUNL’s three 800 MW Patratu project, UPRVUNL’s one 660 MW Panki project and the two 660 MW Maitree project of BIFPCL (a JV of NTPC and Bangladesh Power Development Board) in Bangladesh. With this order, BHEL has contracted FGD orders for 22 thermal units till date.
BHEL’s five decade long experience of installing more than 1 80 000 MW utility sets in India and abroad, backed by its strong engineering credentials, has prompted various utilities to repose their confidence in the company’s capabilities to make their power plants compliant with the revised emission norms.
