Indian power plants supplied with Siemens turbine-generator sets

The North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project in India is to receive high-efficiency steam turbine-generator sets from Siemens Energy.

Together with associated instrumentation and control components, the machines are destined for the Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL)-owned, coal-fired units of the plant located in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, and for IB Thermal Power Station Banharpalli in the neighboring state of Odisha.

These turbine generators deliver a combined installed electrical generating capacity of over 3300 MW.

The project consists of three power plant units generating a total output of 1980 MW. It will be the first coal-fired power plant in India to operate with state-of-the-art supercritical steam parameters of 593°C/593°C at 260 bar, providing highly efficient, environmentally friendly power generation. To save on water, a scarce resource in the region, the plant is equipped for air-cooling - likewise a first in India in this performance class.

Siemens' (NYSE: SI) scope of supply comprises for Unit 1, a Model SST5-6000 steam turbine and a SGen5-3000H-series generator, as well as instrumentation & control components for the turbine-generator set. For Units 2 and 3 the company delivers the instrumentation & control components for the turbine-generator sets. BHEL is erecting the plant on a turnkey basis for India's National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). Delivery of the machinery is scheduled for 2016, while commercial operation is set to launch in 2018.

For Units 3 of coal-fired 1320-MW IB Thermal Power Station Banharpalli, Siemens is supplying a Model SST5-6000 steam turbine and one SGen5-3000H- generator with accompanying turbine-generator I&C components. For Unit 4 the company delivers the instrumentation & control components for the turbine-generator set. BHEL is constructing the new units for Odisha Power Generation Corporation Limited (OPGCL).
