Alstom-Bharat Forge Supplies Supercritical Units to NTPC
Alstom Bharat Forge Power, a joint venture between Alstom and Bharat Forge, has secured a US$470 million contract to supply three 660-megawatt supercritical coal turbine islands to Nabinagar Power Generating Co. Nabinagar is a partnership between India’s NTPC and Bihar State Electricity Board.
ABFPL will provide the equipment along with engineering, installation and commissioning. The order is part of the NTPC bulk tender for the supply of eleven turbine generator islands. In April, ABFPL supplied the first two units to NTPC’s Solapur site in Maharashtra, India, Alstom said in a statement.
Alstom’s supercritical technology uses steam with very high temperatures and pressure, resulting in a much higher efficiency (above 40 per cent) than conventional sub-critical coal fired plants. This means that a supercritical unit burns much less coal and emits lower levels of CO2.
