HEAVY ENGINEERING major Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured an order worth Rs 9,500 million from the Bharat Oman Refinery Limited (BORL) for setting up a 99 mw captive power plant on EPC basis (highest-value single order for a captive power plant).
The power plant will be equipped with eco-friendly, state-of-the-art Circulating Fluidised Bed Combustion (CFBC) boilers, specifically designed to utilise Petcoke fuel, a BHEL release said.
BORL has placed the order on BHEL for a captive power plant (3 x 33 mw) to be set up as part of its refinery project at Bina in Madhya Pradesh.
The customer has opted to source the captive power plant from BHEL in view of its techno-economic superiority — a testimony of customer confidence in BHEL’s capability. Won against the International Competitive Bidding (ICB), the order assumes special significance, as this is the first order for the Petcoke-fired CFBC boilers on BHEL.
It is also the largest single-value order ever secured by the company’s Industry Sector Business segment, a Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited release said.
The eco-friendly power plant will meet the process steam and power requirement of the upcoming refinery project. While the first unit is slated for commission within 26 months, the project will be completed in 30 months.
The equipment, to be supplied under the contract, has to meet very stringent technical specifications to ensure uninterrupted and high-quality power and steam required for the refinery.
Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited’s scope of work in the project envisages design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of the power plant in addition to complete civil works. Major equipment to be supplied includes three units each of 33 mw Steam Turbine Generators and CFBC Boilers of 275 tonnes per hour capacity with Petcoke/Limestone Handling Systems and Ash Handling System, other associated auxiliaries and balance of plant equipment.
BHEL’s plants at Hyderabad, Trichy, Ranipet, Bhopal, Jhansi and the Electronics Division at Bangalore will supply the equipment for this project.
The company’s Power Sector, Western Region, Nagpur, will carry out complete civil works and erection and commissioning of the captive power plant, the release said.
