Adani Group has placed an order for five FGD projects worth rs 6,163. Power Mech Projects Limited has a total of 20 crore. The Hyderabad based construction and services said in a filing that the orders are for a quantum of 15 FGD retrofits to coal-based units with sizes ranging from 330 MW and 660 MW. These five projects would be implemented at Adani Group's coal-based power plants in Mundra, Tiroda, Kawai and Udupi. These engineering, procurement and construction projects are expected to be implemented over the next 30 months.
The company has been associated with Adani Group for over 15 years and has rendered services in multiple portfolios, including power, infra, pipelines, material handling, etc.
These FGD units will curb sulphur-dioxide emissions with 92 per cent recoveries and will be an integral part of the reduction of emission-intensity.
Chairman and Managing Director of PMPL, Sajja Kishore Babu, said PMPL's strategic brilliance in foraying into FGD business comes from its core strength and competence in the power sector for over two decades, touching every segment and forward integration of providing O&M services to power plants. After a decade of high-growth in the Power Sector activities and subsequent slowed-down growth decade, the installation of FGDs will trigger another spell of high-growth in the next couple of years. He said that emission control in coal-based power plants is one of the major thrusts to cope with emission norms as part of India's global commitments.
The orders will allow PMPL to diversify its scope and strengthen the order book, said the company.
PMPL is currently running FGD units for various projects aggregating up to 2,300 MW including Bhusawal, North Chennai and Kahalgaon.
