New Delhi: State-owned engineering major Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has bagged a 1.65 billion ($36 million) order from Indian Oil Corp (IndianOil) to set up an energy efficient co-generation power plant at its Haldia Refinery Complex. "IndianOil has placed an order worth over 1.65 billion for a Frame-5 gas turbine-based co-generation power plant on lump-sum turnkey (LSTK) basis," BHEL said in a statement on Thursday. In addition to ensuring uninterrupted power supply, the co-generation plant will meet the steam needs of the refinery in West Bengal. It is scheduled for commissioning in 22 months. BHEL's scope of work in the project envisages design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of a Frame-5 gas turbine generator and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) of 130 tonnes per hour capacity with associated auxiliaries and balance of plant -- in addition to complete civil works and select spares. While the gas turbine generator will be manufactured at BHEL's Hyderabad plant, the HRSG and state-of-the-art control system will be manufactured at the company's Trichy plant and Electronics Division, Bangalore, respectively. BHEL is already executing a similar turnkey contract for setting up a Frame-5 gas turbine-based co-generation power plant at the Haldia Refinery Complex. It has earlier installed several co-generation power plants of various capacities on turnkey basis at IndianOil's other refineries.
