NEW DELHI - Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned another 270 MW thermal unit at RattanIndia Nasik Power Limited’s 5x270 MW thermal power project, located at Sinnar in Nasik District of Maharashtra.

This is the fourth unit to be commissioned at this project. Significantly, the milestone has been achieved within 35 days of commissioning of the third unit.

So far, BHEL has successfully commissioned 14 sets of 270 MW rating in the country, including 9 sets for the RattanIndia group. In addition to four units at Nasik, BHEL has earlier commissioned 5 sets of 270 MW each at Amravati, for RattanIndia. The fifth unit at the Nasik project is also in advanced stages of completion.

BHEL’s scope of work in the project envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Steam Turbines, Generators, Boilers, associated Auxiliaries and Electricals, besides state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs).

The equipment for the project was supplied by various manufacturing units of BHEL located at Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal and Haridwar while the construction work was carried out by BHEL’s Power Sector - Western Region.

Thermal sets of 270 MW rating are an in-house improvisation of 210/ 250 MW sets supplied earlier by BHEL, which today form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks. BHEL’s customers also enjoy the advantage of assured and prompt After Sales Service.

BHEL is the market leader in the Indian Power Sector with a vast installed base of around 1,80,000 MW of power plant equipment globally.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - GE Renewable Energy jas announced a commitment to provide Invenergy, North America’s largest independent, privately held clean energy provider, with 120 GE2.5-116 90-meter turbines for the Santa Rita wind farm in Reagan County, Texas. The 300 MW wind farm, which is expected to be commissioned by the end of the year, will power the equivalent of 102,500 US homes.

This is Invenergy’s first wind farm using GE’s 2.5-116 turbines, which offer greater energy capture and improved project economics for wind developers. A portion of the turbines installed at the Santa Rita wind farm will include blades manufactured by LM Wind Power, which was recently acquired by GE Renewable Energy.

GE will also implement our Digital Wind Farm solutions, including software to support wind operations including Asset Performance Management analytic capabilities and cyber security through its SCADA secure edition.

BUSAN, Korea - GE’s Marine Solutions reports that the world’s first Liquid Propane Gas (LPG)-fueled ferry design to use GE’s COmbined Gas turbine Electric and Steam (COGES) system has successfully completed Hazard Identification (HAZID) meetings. The consortium of Youngsung Global, DINTEC, Korea LPG Industry Association, GE’s Marine Solutions and Far East Ship Design & Engineering Co. (FESDEC) signed a multilateral memorandum of understanding in November 2016 to cooperate on this unique ferry design.

"Bureau Veritas, a world-leading classification society with a large and recognized expertise and experience in gas fueled ships, chaired the HAZID meetings. All consortium members were represented as well as SK Gas and E1 who are members of the Korea LPG Industry Association. These meetings took place over a three-day period in Busan and are a crucial tool used to identify hazards and safeguards at the early ship design stage," said Brien Bolsinger, GE’s Vice President, Marine Operations, Cincinnati, Ohio. "Now with HAZID meetings successfully completed, the consortium will proceed with securing a shipbuilding contract and will seek Approval in Principle to further validate the safety of the ship design including the COGES propulsion system and the LPG fuel supply," Bolsinger added.

Traditionally, a new ship design undergoes a series of processes from research and development to ship architecture and design, HAZID and AIP certification, and finally onto contracts with the shipyard and suppliers. Therefore, meeting HAZID requirements is considered a key milestone in ensuring the final success of the LPG COGES ferry design process.

Showcase Korean Technologies

This LPG-fueled ferry project provides an opportunity to showcase how Korean technologies advance the global marine industry. In addition, the project allows local Korean companies to participate in the full scope from designing the ferry to building major operational equipment, such as LPG tanks and fuel supply systems.

Increased use of LPG worldwide has made this exciting ferry project feasible. The ship is designed to ensure both economic benefits and environmental performances, adopting LPG as the main fuel for lower fuel costs and no emission of sulfur oxides (SOx). GE’s compact and lightweight COGES system will provide for all ship power, including propulsion.

An added benefit: the COGES system consumes almost no lube oil and meets current and future regulations for SOx, nitrogen oxides (NO­x), carbon dioxide (CO2) and particulate matter. Specifically, GE marine gas turbines meet International Maritime Organization Tier III and United States Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4 standards now without exhaust after treatment and no methane slip.
