Anil Ambani-led Reliance Infrastructure has emerged as the lowest bidder to bag a Rs 567 crore turnkey contract from NTPC for carrying out of Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) works of its 1,500-mw power plant at Jhajjar in Haryana.
The price bid of Reliance Infrastructure was lower than state-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL), Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power systems, sources said.
Scope of the contract includes design, engineering supply and commissioning of the FGD system at the 3×500 mw project. The system will help NTPC meet the revised emissions norms issued by the environment ministry for coal-based power plants in 2015.
The project will be completed in 20 months from the award of the contract for the first unit with subsequent units each at three months gap.
The environment ministry’s revised standards for emissions for thermal power plants require comprehensive retrofits with flue gas desulphurisation systems in the operating units as well as projects under construction.
A senior NTPC official confirmed the development but said the contracts are yet to be awarded. Read More
