Hindalco order may flare up ISGEC Heavy Engineering

ISGEC Heavy Engineering has won its first breakthrough order for a Semi-Dry FGD (Circulating Fluidised Bed Scrubbers) System from Hindalco Industries Ltd for one of their 150 MW units at Mahan Aluminium at Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh.

The order value is Rs 126.5 crore and the schedule for completion of the project is 22 months.

Though the Letter of Intent from the customer was received in February 2020, the contract signing could take place only after the lockdown was lifted, it said in a notice to the stock exchanges. The project was won through competitive bidding against other technology providers.

ISGEC has a technology licensing agreement with Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) for Semi-Dry FGD (Circulating Fluidized Bed Scrubbers) and it is this advanced technology that will be used for the Hindalco project as a first for the Indian market.

The broad scope of the project includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, civil works, construction, commissioning and performance guarantee testing for the complete Semi-Dry Flue Gas Desulphurisation System Package (SDFGD) for the 150 MW Unit.

This order is an addition to ISGEC's FGD order book as the company is already executing orders for NTPC for wet FGD Packages for two of its plants at Kudgi (3x800 MW) and Gadarwara (2x800 MW).
