11-Oct-2010 - India

The AE&E Group has secured an order to supply four sets circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boilers with a total capacity of 600 MW to the Indian Essar Group’s Salaya III power station in the state of Gujarat, part of its growth plan to increase power generating capacity from 1220 MW to 11470 MW. The contract was awarded to local Indian subsidiary AE&E Chennai Works Pvt Ltd. Phased delivery of the four boilers is to take place within 25 months.

AE&E is experiencing a big jump in demand going into the fourth quarter. A number of major contracts in the energy and environmental sector are about to be awarded, and the AE&E Group is excellently placed to win them. AE&E currently expects to win major orders in the next months for its coal and biomass fired steam generators, energy from waste plants and flue gas cleaning systems. These orders should lead to a total order intake of almost one billion euro at year end.

The order for the Essar Group’s Salaya III power station in Gujarat, India comprises project management, and the design, engineering and delivery of the four CFB boilers, each capable of producing 495 t/h of steam, as well as erection and commissioning support. The boilers will run on a blend of petroleum coke and bituminous coal. The boiler pressure parts will be manufactured at AE&E’s manufacturing facility in Chennai, India. The boilers are also being designed with the capability to fire 100% of coal.
