NTPC Awards GE Power Four Contracts for Installation of Air Quality Control Systems


NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Baden, Switzerland, 2018/10/31 - GE Power announced that it has been awarded four orders by NTPC Limited to supply and install Wet FGD systems for a combined value of INR 1783 crore (USD 247 million) - / NYSE: GE


• GE Power to supply Wet Flue Gas Desulphurization (Wet FGD) technology for four NTPC coal plants in a deal worth INR 1783 crore (USD 247 million);
• With these new contracts, GE’s technology for SO2 emission control will help NTPC remove more than half a million tons of SO2 each year and meet India’s latest thermal power plant emission norms for SO2;
• With a global Wet FGDs installed base just under 70GW, these deals build on GE Power’s strength in this segment of air quality control systems.

The four power plant projects are:

• Solapur Super Thermal Power Project - 2x660 MW;
• Tanda Super Thermal Power Project Stage II - 2x660 MW;
• Feroze Gandhi Unchahar Thermal Power Project -1x500 MW; and
• Meja Thermal Power Project - 2x660 MW, by Meja Urja Nigam Private Limited (a JV of NTPC & UPRVUNL).

These new awards build on GE Power’s expertise in Wet FGD systems with the recent completion of facilities and performance guarantee tests for Wet FGD at NTPC’s Vindhyachal Stage V / Unit 13 - 1 x 500 MW thermal power plant and awarded contract for Wet FGD for NTPC’s 2x800 MW Telangana thermal power project earlier this year.

These six Wet FGDs together will treat more than 42 million cubic meters per hour of flue gas and will remove more than 540,000 tons of SO2 each year which will be converted into gypsum by-product for use in the construction industry.

“This is an important milestone in the country’s progress towards lowering the environmental footprint of its’ thermal power plants,” said Andrew H. DeLeone, Managing Director, GE Power India Limited. “NTPC is clearly leading the industry in adoption of emission-control equipment to comply with the new emission standards which is an encouraging sign. GE’s broad emission controls portfolio as well as services solutions that can improve coal power plants efficiency and flexibility and lower environmental impact, can further help India balance growing environmental concerns and the need to provide affordable power to its citizen.”

The installation of these Wet FGDs will help NTPC ( meet the new emission standards issued by the Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC), Government of India in December 2015 making it mandatory for thermal power plants in India to install FGD technology to reduce SO2 emissions. The installation of GE Power’s Wet FGDs will take 33 months for the first unit and 39 months for the second unit from the date of award of the contract. GE’s scope includes Design, Engineering, Civil Work, Supply, Erection and Commissioning of Wet FGD systems along with auxiliaries like Limestone and Gypsum Handling System and Wet Stack.

“GE’s Steam Power team is uniquely positioned to deliver local air quality control solutions using the lessons learned from its decades of global expertise providing similar systems to customers in locations around the world,” said Pascal Radue, General Manager, Steam Power’s Clean Combustion. “With these new projects, our global installed base for Wet FGDs will get just under 70GW.”

GE Power is an industry leader in clean power generation from coal with a broad portfolio of air quality control systems that can help further lower emissions. In India, GE has been partnering with the main power producers to offer advanced emission control technologies as well as services solutions to improve the efficiency and flexibility of the installed base while lowering its environmental impact.
