Siemens delivers steam turbine-generator sets and I&C components to India


Siemens Energy is supplying high-efficiency steam turbine-generator sets with associated instrumentation & control components to power plant projects in India.

The machines are destined for the coal-fired units of the North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project (STPP) 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 3,300 megawatts. The customer is the Indian company Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL), Siemens' licensed partner in India.

The coal-fired North Karanpura Super Thermal Power Project consists of three power plant units generating a total output of 1,980 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' 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).

"These orders are further testimony to the success story we have enjoyed with our long-term licensing partner BHEL. India is an attractive and highly competitive market with enormous potential," notes Wilfried Ulm, CEO of the Business Unit Steam Turbines at Siemens Energy.
