The equipment will be delivered for Units 8, 9 and 10, with a capacity of 660MW each, at Mahagenco’s Koradi Thermal Power Station as part of a project aimed at easing electricity shortages. Trial operations of Unit 8 are scheduled to begin in late 2013, followed by Unit 9 around mid-2014 and Unit 10 in late 2014.

The order was coordinated by Larsen & Toubro (L&T), which has outsourced the boiler packages and steam turbine/generator packages to L&T MHI Boilers (LMBPL), a boiler manufacturing joint venture between L&T and MHI, and L&T MHI Turbine Generators (LMTGPL), a turbine/generator manufacturing joint venture between L&T and MHI, respectively.

MHI will manufacture the core components of the boilers and turbines and supply them to the two joint ventures. Mitsubishi Electric Corporation is responsible for generators.
