India-based Reliance Infrastructure (RInfra) has secured an EPC contract worth INR36.75bn ($539M) from NLC India for setting up two lignite-based CFB C thermal power projects with a capacity of 250MW each.
The plants will be constructed in Barsingsar and Bithnok, in the Bikaner District of Rajasthan, India.
The scope of the contract will include setting up two 250MW power plants based on circulating fluidised bed combustion (CFBC) technology.
RInfra EPC CEO Arun Gupta said: “This is a prestigious project for us and will add up to our existing credentials of executing big-scale, complex projects in record time and at competitive cost.
“With our experience of having executed different types of power projects, from supercritical coal-fired to advanced-class gas turbine to renewable energy, this contract will augment our capability and add Neyveli Lignite Corporation a Navratna PSU in our existing illustrious client list.
“This project has been won by us at the right time to further leverage our unparalleled comprehension of critical technology, expertise in engineering and time bound execution in the EPC space.”
Both the projects are scheduled to be commissioned in 2020.
