BHEL wins Rs. 560 crore order for emission control equipment from NTPC

The public sector Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) today said it had bagged an order, valued at Rs. 560 crore, for the supply and installation of Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) system from NTPC for the 2x490 MW National Capital Power Station (NCPS) at Dadri, near here, in Uttar Pradesh. 
The order has been secured against stiff competition from Indian and multinational companies, a press release from BHEL said.
The Indian power sector has seen an uptick in the ordering of emission control equipment due to the revised and more stringent emission norms notified by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in December, 2015, the release said.
The notification calls for installation of equipment to control various harmful emissions, both in existing as well as new thermal power projects.  
Earlier, BHEL had successfully executed the FGD system at Tata Power’s Trombay Unit 8 in 2008 and is currently installing FGD systems at NTPC’s 3x250 MW Bongaigaon project. The company has also recently received orders for installation of FGD system at 5x800 MW Yadadri project of TSGENCO and 2x660 MW Maitree project in Bangladesh. With the latest order, BHEL has contracted FGD orders for 13 units till date.
