GE QUICKLY EXPANDING INTO SERVICING OTHER MANUFACTURERS’ POWER GENERATION EQUIPMENT
Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Source: GE

BADEN, Switzerland - GE’s Power Services business has announced the start of a new steam turbine overhaul project at the Mondi Swiecie S.A. paper mill in Poland as well as the successful completion of advanced boiler upgrades at two coal-fired power plants operated by CEZ, a. s. and Energotrans a. s. in the Czech Republic. The projects are the latest in a series of orders showcasing GE’s enhanced global capabilities to service other manufacturers’ power generation equipment after the company acquired Alstom Power in November 2015.

"These projects underscore our expanded capabilities as a total solutions provider for operators around the world-no matter if their turbines and other components were originally supplied by GE, Alstom or another original equipment manufacturer (OEM)," said Paul McElhinney, president and CEO of GE’s Power Services business. "GE is committed to offering greater value to operators seeking to improve the life cycle performance of their power generation equipment. With technologies and expertise that now cross all major plant assets and numerous OEM brands, Power Services can develop solutions that deliver better performance and value at the plant and fleet levels."

Overhaul of Siemens-Supplied Industrial Steam Turbine at Mondi Swiecie S.A. Paper Mill

In Poland, GE’s Power Services business has been selected to overhaul a Siemens-supplied, 48-megawatt (MW) PBS industrial steam turbine at Mondi Swiecie S.A.’s paper mill in Swiecie. The main purpose of overhauling the turbine is to extend the unit’s operating life.

For the project, GE is overhauling a Siemens-supplied PBS Brno steam turbine in Unit 2 of the mill’s four-unit station. GE will provide a factory overhaul of the steam turbine’s rotors and new blades as well as a factory overhaul of the generator rotor. GE’s field services team also will overhaul the turbine generator’s control system and auxiliary equipment at the mill.

Mondi Swiecie S.A. is owned by the Mondi Group, which is an international packaging and paper group that employs about 25,000 people in more than 30 countries.

Boiler Modernizations at Pocerady and Melník Coal-Fired Power Plants, Czech Republic

GE recently completed advanced boiler modernization projects at the coal-fired plant Elektrárna Pocerady, a. s. from CEZ Group and the coal-fired Melník I power plant, operated by Energotrans a. s., which is a power and engineering company fully controlled by CEZ. These upgrades reduced the power plants’ nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 60 percent, enabling the stations to supply power and heat to households and industries in compliance with European Union emissions standards.

GE modernized four, 200-MW pulverized coal boilers-originally supplied by Czech engineering group Vitkovice-at the Pocerady power plant in the northwestern part of the country as well as six, Vitkovice-supplied pulverized coal boilers at the 1,089-MW Melník I power plant.

VESTAS RECEIVES 178 MW ORDER IN KANSAS
Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Source: Vestas

PORTLAND, Ore. - Capital Power Corporation has placed an order for 54 V117-3.3 MW turbines, to be deployed at the 178 MW Bloom Wind Project in Kansas. The order includes a five-year active output management 5000 service agreement, which is a full-scope service package to maximize uptime, performance and energy production.

Manufacturing and shipment is mainly expected to occur in 2016, with commissioning scheduled for the first and second quarter of 2017.

Since its launch in 2010, Vestas has sold over 14 GW of the 3.0 MW turbine platform globally.

"Our 3 MW turbine platform is proving its versatility across a variety of North American wind regimes, and we are starting to see much broader deployment across the mid-western wind belt," says Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. "This project will be the first V117-3.3 MW turbines Kansas, where the combination of a robust design, outstanding grid support, and a large rotor make this turbine an outstanding choice to minimize the cost of energy throughout the life of the project."

The Bloom wind project will generate enough electricity to power approximately 67,000 Kansas households.

BHEL COMMISSIONS 600 MW THERMAL POWER PLANT IN MADHYA PRADESH
Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Source: BHEL

NEW DELHI - Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 600 MW coal-based thermal power plant in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The unit has been commissioned at the 1x600 MW Jhabua Thermal Power Project (TPP) located in Seoni district in Madhya Pradesh. The project is being developed by Jhabua Power Limited (JPL), a subsidiary of Avantha Power & Infrastructure Limited (APIL).

This is the second project of APIL commissioned by BHEL, having earlier commissioned the 1x600 MW Avantha Bhandar TPP at Raigarh in Chhattisgarh. BHEL’s scope of work in the contract envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Steam Turbine, Generator and Boiler, along with associated Auxiliaries and Electricals, besides state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs). BHEL-built 600 MW rating sets comprise a 4 cylinder turbine, which is designed in-house, amply demonstrating the engineering prowess of BHEL.

To date, the company has contracted 21 sets of 600 MW each, of which 16 have already been commissioned. A large number of similar sets ensure easy availability of spares and operator's familiarity.

The equipment for the project was supplied by manufacturing units of BHEL located at Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Bengaluru & Haridwar, while the construction work was carried out by BHEL’s Power Sector - Western Region. In Madhya Pradesh, BHEL is presently executing two supercritical units of 800 MW for NTPC at Gadarwara.
