The plant’s two 600 MW units are currently being built by a Russian engineering contractor.
Six boiler feed pump sets are included in the order. The main and associated booster pumps are driven by 15 200-kW high-voltage electric motors. A geared variable speed coupling installed between the main pump and the motor varies the speed to achieve different operating parameters. Each pump set has been designed for a maximum flow rate of 1200 cubic metres per hour and a head of 4400 m.
The scope of supply also includes six vertical condensate pumps and four vertical cooling water pumps. All pump sets are supplied complete with electric motors, couplings, base frames and instruments.
KSB has worked on a number of other projects in India jointly with the Russian engineering contractor.
