GE Power boasts milestone results at Telangana NTPC plant

GE Power India Ltd (GEPIL) and its affiliates, in consortium with NGSL, have announced milestone results achieved from its steam turbine renovation and modernisation project at NTPC’s Ramagundam Super Thermal Power Station in Telengana. Units 1 and 3 of the 3X200 MW plant were completed in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

This is first energy efficient steam turbine project of the National Thermal Power Corp (NTPC) carried out, and the team was able to deliver better than the agreed contractual commitments on output and performance, setting a new best-in-class performance benchmark for the heat rate for these units. Following the success of these units, the team is now gearing up for installation and commissioning of unit 2.

The combined additional 20 MW output generated from both units will provide electricity to approximately 44,100 houses. The reduction in CO2 emissions is equivalent to around 141,200 cars taken off the roads.

Some parts of the project requirements were fulfilled locally from India, including LP turbine manufacturing, supply by the GE facility in Sanand, Gujarat, and sourcing of critical auxiliary components from various vendors in India.

Prashant Jain, regional general manager of GE Steam Power and managing director, GE Power India, said, “I am very proud of the team who delivered over and above the agreed results. This project supports the decarbonisation story of India with solutions aided by more efficient and flexible power generation.”
