Power EPC scores a century
The Power EPC division recently commissioned a four-megawatt cogeneration power plant for Godrej Agrovet’s palm oil production facility at Chintampalli, Andhra Pradesh. The plant is designed to run on a fuel mix of shredded empty fruit bunch, palm fibre and palm kernel shell to generate power and steam simultaneously; making this the first EPC project by Thermax that is fueled by 100% palm waste. Apart from a 50 TPH pusher grate boiler, Thermax has also supplied air pollution control system, water treatment plant and other auxiliary equipment for this plant. The successful completion of this turnkey project has helped the Power division achieve a significant milestone of commissioning its 100th power plant.
