Alstom T&D India has bagged a contract with Bajaj Infrastructure Development Company to provide an electrical balance of plant (e-BoP) package for the 3 x 660 MW Super Thermal Power Project (STPP).

Bajaj Infrastructure will set up the new STPP facility in Lalitpur, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, to provide electricity to almost 200 million inhabitants in the state.

Under the almost INR2bn ($33.2m) contract, Alstom will design, engineer, supply, and install the eBoP at the super thermal plant.

The contract also includes supply of station transformers, unit transformers and other electricals for the project.

Electrical balance of plant systems feed power to the equipment within a power plant to maximize the availability of the facility’s electrical system.

Alstom T&D India managing director Rathin Basu said, "This is Bajaj Infrastructure’s first power project using supercritical technology."

Bajaj’s Lalitpur STPP facility is scheduled to be commissioned in 2015.

Alstom will manufacture the equipment at its transformer facility in Naini, Uttar Pradesh.
