Wins Rs. 503 crore order for three cogeneration plants
Thermax will set up three natural gas based EPC cogeneration plants (each of 20 MW capacity) for National Fertilisers Limited (NFL). The public sector company has placed an order worth Rs. 503 crore with Thermax for the plants to be commissioned at its facilities in Haryana and Punjab.
The project is the outcome of NFL’s initiative to bring down its dependence on fossil fuel and to save energy. The three cogen plants through a combination of GTGs (Gas-Turbine-Generators) and HRSGs (Heat Recovery Steam Generators) will generate power for captive use and steam for process simultaneously. Says Unny, “The thrust on cogeneration for saving energy costs has increasingly gained importance among our customers where we have secured recent orders.” Thermax’s proven expertise in EPC cogen plants positions it well in pitching for new business across sectors.
The scope of supply includes design, engineering, manufacturing, construction and commissioning of the cogeneration plants. The project is to be completed in 22 months.
