NEW DELHI: IT company Tata Honeywell on Tuesday announced that it has bagged orders from major companies, including HZL, Indal, Balco, for the automation of their captive power plants.

The company, through its 'Experion PKS' software, would help Hindustan Zinc, Gujarat Ambuja, Indal, HEG, Balco and Tisco maximise their plant efficiency, run them with cost-effective equipment and track plant health, equipment, assets and cost of power generation at each stage, a company statement said here on Tuesday.

The order from Hindustan Zinc at Chittorgarh is for the automation of its 2x77 mega watt smelter plant, while the Gujarat Ambuja order is for its cement plant at Ropar.

Other orders include Indian Alumnium's 1x100 MW at Hirakud, Hindustan Electro graphite's 30 MW plant at Mandideep in Bhopal , a 30 MW power plant of Tisco and Bharat Alumnium Company's 4x135 MW project with Honeywell , China .

"The new Electricity Act 2003 is a major boon for captive power plants, specially the existing ones, as energy is getting ready to be traded and organisations need to improve their existing capacities," Tata Honeywell managing director, Vinayak Deshpande, said.

The new Electricity Bill 2003 allows commercial and industrial users to set up their own power generation facilities and have open access for transmission and distribution.
