Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has secured an order for the renovation and modernization (R&M) of Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP) at Kahalgaon Super Thermal Power Station (STPS) in Bihar.

Valued at over Rs 2.15 billion, the turnkey order envisages carrying out R&M of ESPs at Kahalgaon STPS, Stage-I (4x210 MW) of NTPC Limited. The ESPs, originally supplied alongwith the units by BHEL, (Q,N,C,F)* have been in successful operation for more than 25 years since the commissioning of the units.

Renovation of these ESPs will enable these units to meet the new norms for suspended particulate matter (SPM) emission, recently announced by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MOEF & CC). Modernisation of the units will facilitate the operation of these units for many more years.

BHEL's scope of work in the contract includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, dismantling, erection, testing and commissioning of the ESPs to bring down the SPM emission to the stipulated level for all the four units of Kahalgaon STPS, Stage-1.

Major equipment for the project will be supplied by BHEL’s units located at Ranipet and Bhopal, while the execution on site will be undertaken by Power Sector Eastern Region.

Significantly, with this order, BHEL has once again established itself as the market leader, not only as a supplier of ESPs but also in the field of R&M of ESPs.

BHEL is already executing similar R&M projects on turnkey basis for NTPC and state utilities like GSECL, CSPGCL, etc. With the R&M of ESPs by BHEL, many old units will be able to comply with the new emission norms.

Shares of the company gained Rs 1.8, or 2%, to trade at Rs 91.85. The total volume of shares traded was 192,183 at the BSE (10.18 a.m., Wednesday).
