Steel Exchange India's captive power plant starts in AP

In Andhra Pradesh, a 60 mw thermal power plant set up by Steel Exchange India (SEIL) near its steel plant at Sreerampuram of Kothavalasa near Vizianagaram district went on stream on January 27. Rs 315 crore has been invested in the establishment of the plant through a special purpose vehicle 'Simhadri Power Limited'.

SEIL, which owns a 0.35 million tonne steel plant and has plans to increase its capacity to one million tonne by 2020, will meet its requirement of power from its captive power plant.

The plant uses waste heat from the exhaust gases of 2x350 tonne per day DRI kilns, reject coal fines, char and balance ROM coal as fuel to generate steam. The surplus power will be supplied to the AP grid under short-term open access policy. The plant will make use of thermal systems to generate steam and feed it to 2x30 Siemens steam turbines.

The plant is equipped with air-cooled condensers of GEI make to avoid huge water consumption.

Ash transfer and coal conveying system with dust control and dust suppression equipment are installed as an environment-friendly measure, SEIL Managing Director B Satish Kumar said after the inauguration of Circulating Fluidised Bed Combustion (CFBC) boiler by Union Minister of State for Commerce & Industry D Purandeswari.
