GE Power India Limited (GEPIL) has been awarded contracts worth $40 million by BHEL to supply components and services for the supercritical steam generator island packages for 2x800 MW coal-based Uppur Thermal Power Project and 1x800 MW coal-based North Chennai supercritical thermal power project stage-III. Both the thermal power projects are located in Tamil Nadu. This is in line with the government’s focus on upgrading the power infrastructure in the country.
Currently, the installed power generation capacity of Tamil Nadu stands at ~13 GW. The addition of 2400 MW of cumulative power generated from both Uppur and North Chennai supercritical power projects will help in providing easy access to electricity to the people of Tamil Nadu while lighting up approximately 7 million homes in the state.
As part of the scope, GEPIL will partner with BHEL to supply identified pressure parts of the boilers. It will also provide BHEL with technical advisors during the erection and commissioning of the units related to Boiler. Key components for both the projects will be manufactured in GE’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Durgapur, West Bengal.
Alain Spohr, Country Leader, Steam Power Systems, GE South Asia explains, “GE’s advanced supercritical technology powered equipment satisfies the most stringent environmental requirements and stand out for their robustness and high reliability. It also helps in achieving about 3-4 per cent higher plant efficiency compared to conventional sub-critical design. We are delighted to receive these contracts from BHEL, which marks another step in our successful collaboration on supercritical boiler technology.”
