Alstom and NASL have been awarded a contract worth approximately €26.6 million (Rs 2,067 million) by Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL) to renovate and modernise two steam turbines at the Ukai and Wanakbori thermal power stations.

Alstom will perform full shaftline retrofits of the 200 MW BHEL-supplied LMZ design steam turbines at unit 4 of the 1350 MW Ukai power station and unit 3 of the 1470 MW Wanakbori power station.

The retrofits will increase turbine efficiency by around 14 per cent from existing operating conditions thereby reducing coal consumption and CO2 emissions.

The scope of each project includes engineering, supply, erection, commissioning and testing. Equipment will be manufactured at Alstom’s facilities in India and Poland. The projects are scheduled to be commissioned in 2017.
