 BHEL has secured an order for the renovation and modernisation of electrostatic precipitators (ESP) at Kahalgaon super thermal power station in Bihar.

The Rs 215 crore turnkey order envisages carrying out renovation and modernisation of ESPs at the power station, stage-I of NTPC. The electrostatic precipitators supplied along with the units by BHEL have been in successful operation for more than 25 years since the unit’s commissioning.
 
Renovation of these ESPs will enable these units to meet the new norms for suspended particulate matter (SPM) emission, recently announced by the ministry of environment, forest and climate change. Modernisation of the units will facilitate the operation of these units for many more years.
 
BHEL’s scope of work in the contract includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, dismantling, erection, testing and commissioning of the ESPs.
 
BHEL is already executing similar modernisation projects on turnkey basis for NTPC.
