Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has been awarded a contract to deliver and install the electrostatic precipitator (ESP) package for the 2x800MW Darlipali super thermal power project (STPP) in Darlipali, Orissa, a state in India.

Under the INR2.2bn ($35.8m) contract, awarded by NTPC, BHEL will provide EPC package for the upcoming Darlipali STPP-II in Sundargarh district of Orissa.

BHEL will design, engineering, manufacture, supply and erect and commission electrostatic precipitators of the 2x800MW Darlipali power project, as part of the contract.

The company has now secured 13 of the 18 ESPs ordered for 660/800MW supercritical units of NTPC, under the Cabinet-approved ‘bulk tender’ power projects.

Currently, BHEL is implementing the order for the steam generator (SG) package with supercritical parameters for the Darlipali power project.

BHEL will manufacture the ESP at its Ranipet plant while the high voltage rectifier transformers will be developed by the company’s Jhansi plant.

BHEL’s Power Sector-Southern Region will be responsible for the ESPs erection and commissioning.

Designed for emission levels of as low as 18 mg/Nm3 as against standard norms of 50 mg/Nm3, the BHEL ESPs fully meet stringent pollution control standard, the company claimed.
