Sravanthi Energy, a private power developer in India, is buying four GE 6FA gas turbines for a 450 MW power plant in the Northern Indian city of Kashipur.

The presence of gas and the need for greater power generation capacity have resulted in an attractive investment opportunity for many mid-sized independent power producers (IPPs). IPPs are building power projects in close proximity to major load centers.

GE will supply four Frame 6FA gas turbines and associated generators for the Sravanthi project, which is expected to be developed in two 225 MW phases. Sravanthi Energy expects the commercial operation of phase one to begin in the third quarter of 2011, with phase two in the first quarter of 2012.
