GE Power India Limited (GEPIL)* has been awarded three contracts for a combined value of Rs.850.69 crore to supply its best-in-class air quality control systems (AQCS) solutions to:

  • Hindalco Industries Limited (1x150MW) for their Aditya Aluminium Plant Lapanga in Sambalpur, Odisha have committed to setting up the India’s first ever Semi Dry FGD, a one of its kind system (NID) under the Make-in-India intiative to reduce the SO2 emission within permissible limits. The project is expected to be commissioned by 2021. The scope includes design, engineering, supply, installation, commissioning & civil and structural work of FGD solutions. This technology will give a number of benefits as it facilitates SO2 removal with lower water consumption, smaller footprint, utilization of existing stack, lesser lifecycle cost and lesser implementation time  
  • NTPC Limited for their Feroze Gandhi Unchahar Thermal Power Project Stage-I, II & III (2x210MW + 2x210 MW + 1x210MW) in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh. This is GE Steam Power’s first Wet FGD order to install common absorber for a combination of multiple boiler units. This landmark order is expected to be completed by February 2023. This will help to treat 8.4 million m3/ hour of Flue Gas and remove ~63,000 tons/Year of SO2 thereby complying with the new emission norms to reduce the level of SOx in emissions from thermal power plants. The scope includes design, engineering, supply, installation, commissioning & civil and structural work of FGD solutions (along with auxiliaries including limestone and gypsum handling systems and wet stack) on a full turnkey basis.
  • UP Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam (UPRVUNL) will be setting up a combustion system modification of the boilers along with advanced firing system equipment to meet the NOx emission norms for their Harduaganj, Parichha and Anpara plants. The order is a first for combustion modification for NOx control by any state utility in India.

GE’s AQCS solutions offer real and tangible impact for our customers and their communities in terms of improving in the overall air quality. Prashant Jain, Managing Director of GE Power India Ltd said, “The commitment being shown by the Government of India to reduce the overall levels of SOx and NOx is very encouraging. GE is an industry leader in clean power generation with a broad and best-in-class portfolio of air quality control systems is proud to partner with customers who are working towards a cleaner tomorrow. The solutions from its AQCS portfolio will help to lower levels of SOx and NOx in emissions and will serve to improve the overall quality of air.”
