GE Power India bags job orders worth Rs 327.5 crore
GE Power India has won two orders worth of Rs 327.5 crore from Doosan Power Systems India Pvt (DPSI) to supply ambient air quality control systems to be installed at power plants.
“… awarded two contracts by DPSI to supply ambient air quality control systems for Jawaharpur and Obra C power plants operated by Jawaharpur Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd (JVUNL) and Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd (UPRVUNL), respectively,” a company statement said.
According to the statement, the deal worth Rs 327.5 crore million (USD 49.2 million) includes four electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) that can remove particulate matter and help meet India’s ambient air quality regulation standards.
It said GE Power is also supplying super critical steam turbines for the same projects, which are being executed by DPSI on EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) basis. Once operational, these plants together will produce 2,640 mw, potentially powering nearly 16 million Indian homes. The technology is expected to bring down the emission of particulate matters below the mandated level under the new environmental guidelines.
