GE Power India has been awarded Rs 142 crore ($20 million) order by NTPC for supply and installation of low nitrogen oxide (NOx) combustion system for 10 GW of thermal power plant capacity across the country. This is the first project awarded on such a large scale by NTPC to install low NOx combustion technology at its thermal power plant fleet.
The project involves in-combustion system modification of the boiler by staging the combustion air in the furnace to reduce the generation of fuel and thermal NOX during the combustion process. The combustion modification technology can help reduce 30-40% of NOx emissions from these coal-fired boilers up to a level of less than 400 mg/Nm3 at 6% oxygen (O2) content in flue gas on dry gas basis at Induced Draft (ID) Fan outlet.
GE Power India is engaged in the engineering, procurement, manufacturing, construction and servicing of power plants and power equipment.
