Bhel bags Rs 3K-cr order for NTPC Odisha unit

The state-owned heavy electricals major has received the order from the country’s largest power producer NTPC for supply of 2x800 MW steam generators (boilers) with super critical parameters for the project at Darlipali, Odisha.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Bhel said the contract, valued at nearly Rs 3,000 crore, has been won in the face of stiff international competition. ‘With this order, BHEL has taken its tally of super critical boilers of 660 MW, 700 MW and 800 MW ratings to 32 sets, cementing its leadership position in super critical technology,’ it said.

The scope of work includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the steam generators and auxiliaries. ‘The key equipment for the contract will be manufactured at Bhel’s Trichy, Ranipet, Bhopal, Hyderabad and Bangalore plants...,” it added.

Meanwhile, in a separate development, Alstom on Tuesday said it has bagged a contract worth 40 million euros or over Rs 334 crore from Bhel to supply three 660-mw supercritical boilers for the north Karanpura super thermal power projects in Jharkhand. Under the contract, Alstom will design the 660 MW supercritical boilers and supply identified pressure parts along with windboxes, a statement issued here said. The units are expected to be commissioned in 2017.

This project forms part of NTPC’s bulk 660 MW tender, the release said. Alstom will also assist Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd with technical advisors during the erection and commissioning of the units, it said. The key components will be manufactured in the company’s facilities in Concordia, USA, as well as in Durgapur in India.
