US India gas plant

Reliance Power has selected Black & Veatch to design its 2,500 MW, US$2 billion Samalkot natural gas-fired power plant in India. The plant is part of a US$10 billion export agreement between the U.S. and India.

Initial construction work has already begun and the new plant is planned to start generating power early in 2012. The plant will be made up of three power blocks, each consisting of two 9FA GE natural gas combustion turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine. Each block will have a capacity of 833 MW.

Recent reports estimate that electric supply shortages in southern India resulted in a 30-35 percent production loss for the manufacturing industry in 2010.
