Supercritical equipment award from India’s second largest electricity generator

11 May 2010 - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Limited (MHI) has received an order for three supercritical coal fired boiler and steam turbine/generator packages from Maharashtra State Power Generation Company Limited (Mahagenco), India’s second largest electricity generator.
 
The equipment will be delivered to Mahagenco's Koradi thermal power station for its Units 8, 9 and 10 - each 660 MW. The order is part of a project to ease electricity shortages in the state of Maharashtra caused by its robust economic growth.
 
Trial operations of Unit 8 are scheduled to begin in late 2013, followed by Unit 9 around mid-2014 and Unit 10 in late 2014.
 
The order was coordinated by Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T), one of the largest private companies in India.
 
L&T outsourced the boiler packages and steam turbine/generator packages to L&T MHI Boilers Private Limited, a boiler manufacturing joint venture between L&T and MHI, and L&T MHI Turbine Generators Private Limited, a turbine/generator manufacturing joint venture between L&T and MHI.
 
MHI will manufacture the core components of the boilers and turbines and supply them to the two joint ventures. Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has responsibility for the generators.
