Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has won a $294.35m contract to build three boilers for a thermal power plant in Bihar, India.

The project – awarded by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) – comprises three 660 MW boilers in its Barh Super Thermal Power Station.

The Indian power generation market is expected to grow in the coming decade and in a bid to expand its presence in the Indian power generation market, Doosan Heavy Industries adopted a localisation strategy through the acquisition of AE&E Chennai Works Private, a local manufacturer of industrial goods, in 2011, to set up Doosan Power Systems India.

The Bihar project is expected to be completed in October 2018.
