Alstom T&D India has been awarded a contract by Bajaj Infrastructure Development Company, to supply e-BoP (Electrical Balance of Plant) Package for their upcoming 3 x 660 MW Super Thermal Power Project (STPP) in Lalitpur, Uttar Pradesh. The contract is worth approximately 2000 MINR (€28.5 million).
India has an ever-increasing need for secure, reliable energy and Super Thermal Power Plants are critical to ensuring this constant power supply across the country. The Lalitpur plant will be a major power supplier to the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India, which has around 200 million inhabitants.
Electrical Balance of Plant systems (eBoP) feed power to the equipment within a power plant to maximize availability of the power plant’s electrical system. They are essential for efficient and stable operations. Under this contract, Alstom T&D India is responsible for the design, engineering, supply and installation of the eBoP at the Lalitpur plant, which includes supply of Station Transformers, Unit Transformers and other Electricals for the project. The equipment will be manufactured at Alstom T&D’s state-of-the-art transformer facility in Naini, Uttar Pradesh.
Commenting on this success, Rathin Basu, Managing Director, Alstom T&D India said, “This is Bajaj Infrastructure’s first power project using supercritical technology. Alstom T&D India has won several e-BoP projects in India, particularly in the high end segment above 300 MW and for 600/660 MW power plants. As of now, around 9000 MW of projects are under execution by Alstom T&D, which highlights our expertise and leadership within the e-BoP segment.”
The Lalitpur Super Thermal Power Project is scheduled to be commissioned in 2015.
