Alstom T&D India wins substation contract
Alstom T&D India has been awarded a contract worth Rs 840 million from Chhattisgarh State Power Transmission (CSPTCL), for the erection, testing and commissioning of a 400 kV substation at Jagdalpur in Chhattisgarh. Following significant industrial development in recent years, Chhattisgarh is one of the major ‘power hubs’ in India. This latest substation project will support industrial expansion in the state by enhancing the transmission network. Rathin Basu, MD, Alstom Grid India, said, “Alstom Grid India is proud to partner with CSPTCL from design to commissioning of this 400 kV substation at Jagdalpur.”
Meanwhile, the company has also successfully commissioned an electrical balance of plant (eBoP) package for a 2x600 MW power plant located at Salaya in Jamnagar district in Gujarat. The Essar Group awarded this Rs 2,050 million contract to Alstom T&D India for design, manufacturing, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of an eBoP package for the power plant.
In a related development, Alstom-Bharat Forge Power (ABFPL), the joint venture company between Alstom and Bharat Forge, has secured an order worth over €250 million (Rs 1,570 crore) for the supply to NTPC of two units of 660 MW supercritical coal ‘turbine islands’ in Solapur in Maharashtra. Alstom’s share of the contract amounts to approximately €125 million. Alstom-Bharat Forge Power had emerged as the lowest bidder in NTPC’s bulk tender for the supply of 11 units of 660 MW super-critical turbine generator islands. The 7,300 MW tender is the biggest-ever initiated by the Indian government.
In another related development, Alstom has granted Rs 5.8 million to Husk Power Systems for a dry gasifier project. Launched under the aegis of Alstom Foundation, the grant will be used for bridging funding gaps for two identified 'critical success' factors/areas that will enable HPS to become truly scalable in rural electrification business.
