The company gave the contract worth Rs.161 crore to EMCO for the supply, installation and commissioning of 35 nos. transformers of various ratings including 14 nos. 260 MVA, 420 kV, one phase generator transformer (i.e., three phase bank of 78- MVA capacity) and three nos. 200 MVA, 400 kV, three phase auto transformers for Solapur super thermal power project (2 x 660 MW) and for Mouda super thermal power project-II (2 x 660 MW) in Maharashtra. Also, L&T has been awarded with the electrical work for Mouda super thermal project of NTPC in Nagpur. BHEL secured a contract worth Rs.1,143 for setting up a 1x500 MW thermal power generating unit includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply and erection & commissioning of steam generator and steam turbine generator along with associated auxiliaries and state-of-the-art controls & instrumentation at NTPC's Vindhyachal super thermal power station (STPS), in Madhya Pradesh.


The month in all, witnessed 63 contracts worth Rs.11,218 crore being awarded to various entities in domestic and overseas shores. In the sector wise distribution, the Power sector was at the top with 17 contracts worth Rs.7,484 crore. Of which, the Coal/Lignite based power sector has bagged maximum 15 contracts worth Rs.5,512 contributing 49.14 per cent in the total order value share. Major contract worth Rs.1,855 crore was secured by BGR Energy Systems from Meja Urja Nigam for the supply of 2x660 MW supercritical boilers at Meja in Uttar Pradesh. Also, Meja Urja Nigam provided another contract worth Rs.1,606 crore to Toshiba JSW Turbine Generation for supplying, engineering, procurement, manufacturing, installation and testing of two units of 660 MW steam turbine generator islands for Meja thermal power project in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. Another prominent contract secured during the month was worth Rs.1,148 by Welspun Energy Madhya Pradesh from the Madhya Pradesh Government for a 125 MW solar photovoltaic project on barren tract of land in Mandsaur and Neemuch of Madhya Pradesh. The project will be funded in 75:25 debt-equity ratio.


In the Wind based power sector, only one contract worth Rs.305 crore was awarded to Suzlon Energy by the Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation for setting up a 50 MW wind power project in Jamnagar district of Gujarat. The project will comprise 24 units of Suzlon's S95 wind turbines, featuring doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) technology, with an individual capacity of 2.1 MW. The DFIG technology allows extracting maximum energy from the wind for low wind speeds by optimising the turbine speed, while minimising mechanical stresses on the turbine during gusts of wind. Wind turbines using a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) consist of a wound rotor induction generator and an AC/DC/AC IGBT-based PWM converter. The stator winding is connected directly to the 60 Hz grid while the rotor is fed at variable frequency through the AC/DC/AC converter.
