Thermax has won a Rs 503-crore order from a Union Government enterprise to set up a captive power plant for its new three million tonne a year integrated steel plant in Central India.

Sources said the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contract was from NMDC and the plant would be at Chhattisgarh. Thermax will design, engineer, construct and commission the project on a turnkey basis.

Zero discharge plant

The supply of equipment includes three 160 tonne per hour capacity boilers that use multiple fuels – blast furnace and coke oven gas from the steel process and light diesel oil – and two 40 MW each steam turbines.

Steam from the boilers will be used to blow air into the blast furnace and to generate 80 MW.

The order also includes a water de-mineraliser plant, cooling water system and ventilation systems.

This project is designed as a zero discharge plant. An effluent treatment plant based on reverse osmosis will recycle water.

M.S. Unnikrishnan, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Award of this contract is testimony to Thermax’s ability to configure a complex energy solution at an economical cost.

“We won it against competition from both domestic and international players.”

Thermax has contracted over 75 power projects on turnkey basis based on various fuels including domestic and imported coal, washery rejects, petcoke, waste heat from processes, renewable energy including biomass and solar, waste gases, naphtha and natural gas.
