Alstom wins $41MM components contract for new coal power plant


Alstom awarded contract by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) to supply components for the 1,320 MW Banharpalli coal power plant

Alstom has been awarded a contract by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) worth close to €30 million (US$41 million)[1] to supply components and services for the 2x660 MW Banharpalli Super Thermal Power Project (STPP) located in Jharsaguda, Orissa.

Under the scope of the contract, Alstom will co-operate with BHEL in designing the boilers and supply identified pressure parts of the 660 MW supercritical boilers, along with windboxes. It will also assist BHEL with technical advisors during the erection and commissioning of the units. Key components will be manufactured in Alstom’s manufacturing facilities in Concordia (USA), as well as in Durgapur (India). The units I & II are expected to be commissioned by 2018.

Commenting on this contract, Patrick Ledermann, Vice President of Alstom Thermal Power & Renewable Power in India, said, “We are pleased to win this contract for which we will provide our leading supercritical power plant solutions. Alstom’s supercritical boilers satisfy the most stringent environmental requirements and stand out for their robustness and high reliability. It also helps in achieving about 3-4% higher plant efficiency compared to conventional subcritical design.”

The new Banharpalli contract is a confirmation of the strong cooperation established since 2005 with BHEL. It comes in addition to contracts signed with BHEL between 2008 to 2014 for supercritical boilers in Barh II, Krishnapatnam, Bara, Yermaras, Bellary, Mouda, Nabinagar, Gadarwara, Suratgarh and most recently the Darlipalli and North Karanpura projects in India.
