The Power business of Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has operationalised two thermal power units of 660 MW each at NTPC’s Khargone Super Thermal Power project in Madhya Pradesh and Tanda Thermal Power Station in Uttar Pradesh.
The 660 MW Khargone unit is the country’s first ultra-supercritical unit set up on complete engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis. Ultra-supercritical units feature steam parameters of 600-degree Celsius and 270 kg/cm2 pressure resulting in higher efficiencies, enabling plants to consume less coal, resulting in lesser emissions in comparison to sub-critical and supercritical power plants.
SN Subrahmanyan, CEO & Managing Director – L&T, said: “Successful completion of full load trial run of India’s first ultra-supercritical power plant unit showcases our robust capabilities in engineering, manufacturing, project management and construction in executing complex mega power projects.” Read more
