GE Power India has received four orders from NTPC to supply and install Wet FGD systems for a combined value of Rs 1783 crore. The four power plant projects are for Solapur Super Thermal Power Project – 2×660 MW, Tanda Super Thermal Power Project Stage II – 2×660 MW, Feroze Gandhi Unchahar Thermal Power Project -1×500 MW and Meja Thermal Power Project – 2×660 MW, by Meja Urja Nigam (a JV of NTPC & UPRVUNL).
These new awards build on the company’s expertise in Wet FGD systems with the recent completion of facilities and performance guarantee tests for Wet FGD at NTPC’s Vindhyachal Stage VI Unit 13 – 1 x 500 MW thermal power plant and awarded contract for Wet FGD for NTPC’s 2×800 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 502 each year which will be converted into gypsum by-product for use in the construction industry.
