TIRUCHI: Bharath Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has bagged a major order from the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) to set up an energy-efficient and environment-friendly co-generation power plant at its Haldia Refinery Complex.
The IOC has placed an order worth over Rs.130 crores for a frame-5 co-generation power plant on lump sum turnkey basis.
The project is being set up to meet the requirement of uninterrupted power supply, in addition to the steam needs of the refinery, and is scheduled for commissioning in 22 months, a BHEL press release said.
BHEL's scope of work in the project includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of a frame-5 gas turbine generator and a heat recovery steam generator of 130 tons an hour capacity with associated auxiliaries and balance of plant, in addition to complete civil works and select spares. While the gas turbine generator will be manufactured at BHEL's Hyderabad plant, the heat recovery steam generator and state-of-the-art control system will be manufactured at the Tiruchi unit and electronics division at Bangalore respectively.
BHEL had earlier supplied and installed several co-generation power plants of various capacities on a turnkey basis at IOC's Gujarat, Panipat, Digboi, Barauni, Haldia and Mathura refineries. The plants are under successful operation and are meeting the power as well as steam needs of the refineries.
BHEL has emerged as the market leader in gas-based combined cycle power projects for various industries and has supplied and commissioned more than 600 steam turbine- and gas turbine-based plants for a host of industries such as metal, paper, sugar, cement and process industries including refineries, petrochemicals and fertilizers, the release added.
