Alstom Projects India Ltd has secured orders worth nearly Rs 530 crore from BHEL to supply components and services for the 660-MW supercritical boilers at NTPC sites of two units in Mouda, Maharash

New Delhi The Supreme Court on Thursday cleared decks for the NTPC’s R29,700-crore investment plan by upholding the central utility’s decision to disqualify Ansaldo Caldaie from bidding for the bulk supply of 660 mw super-critical boilers.

The state-owned power generator was unable to award the contract that included 11 supercritical boilers and an equal number of supercritical turbines of 660 mw each, to be built locally, pending the disposal of the matter by the apex court.

Best efficiency of power plants could be achieved only through placing orders for spares with original equipment manufacturers, A.V.Krishnan, Executive Director, BHEL, Tiruchi, said.

Speaking at a customer meet organised by the Spares and Services Business Groups of BHEL's New Delhi, Tiruchi, and Ranipet units at Chennai recently, he assured efficiency of spares supplied by BHEL.

The Materials Technology Section (MTS), with the support of the Environment Technology Section and the Marketing and Business Development Department of the ITI has designed and installed a boiler which can use waste polyester material from the garment factories processed into briquettes, as the fuel source for the boilers.
