BHEL has got Rs 560 crore order for the supply and installation of flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) system from NTPC for 2x490 MW National Capital Power Station (NCPS).

The Indian power sector has seen an uptick in the ordering of emission control equipment due to the revised and more stringent emission norms notified by the ministry of environment, forest and climate change in Dec 2015. The notification calls for installation of equipment to control various harmful emissions, both in existing as well as new thermal power projects.

BHEL is fully geared up to tap the huge market potential and ready to manufacture and supply emission control equipment for Indian thermal power plants to meet these revised emission norms.

Earlier, BHEL had successfully executed the FGD system at Tata Power’s Trombay Unit 8 in 2008 and is currently installing FGD systems at NTPC’s Bongaigaon project. It has also recently received orders for installation of FGD system at Yadadri project of TSGENCO and Maitree project in Bangladesh. With the ordering of Dadri, BHEL has contracted FGD orders for 13 units.
