Alstom Thermal Services business in India has secured a contract worth close to EUR53m (3445m rupees) for the renovation of gas turbines at NTPC’s 657 MW Jhanor Gandhar gas fired power station, located in the Indian state of Gujarat.

Alstom’s scope of supply and services cover the delivery and installation of gas turbine components, followed by testing, commissioning and conducting guarantee tests on the renovated gas turbines.

The components will be manufactured in Alstom’s global manufacturing facilities, but services will be provided by Alstom’s Thermal Services business in India.

The project is scheduled to be commissioned over a period of three years from the date of award.

Jhanor Gandhar was originally supplied with Alstom’s GT13E1 gas turbines, which have been in operation for over 15 years. They have also achieved a significant number of operating hours qualifying for life extension.

Following the renovation, the gas turbines are expected to operate for another 15 years with the same output.
