Alstom has been awarded a contract by Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) to supply components and services for the 2×660 MW Suratgarh supercritical power project located in Suratgarh, Rajasthan, India. The contract is worth approximately €27 million.
Under the scope of the contract, Alstom will co-operate with BHEL in designing the boilers and supply pressure components for the new plant’s two 660 MW supercritical boilers, along with windboxes. It will also assist BHEL with technical advisors during the erection and commissioning of the units. Key components will be manufactured in Alstom’s manufacturing facilities in Concordia, USA, and in Durgapur India. The two units are expected to be commissioned by 2016.
The new contract builds on the strong relationship established since 2005 between the two companies. Eight contracts have been signed with BHEL between 2008 to 2013 for supercritical boilers in Barh II, Krishnapatnam, Bara, Yermaras, Bellary, Mouda and most recently Nabinagar and Gadarwara in India..
