L&T-MHPS Boilers (LMB) has received a $576.9m contract from India’s Neyveli Uttar Pradesh Power (NUPPL) to provide equipment for a proposed 1980 MW coal-fired power plant in the country’s northern state.
Coal-fired power plant
LMB is a joint venture between Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and Japan’s Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS). The partners will be responsible for design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of the three units, each having a capacity of 660MW, of the Ghatampur thermal power project which is planned to be built in Ghatampur Tehsil, Uttar Pradesh.

The power plant is owned by the NUPPL, a joint venture between Neyveli Lignite and Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam.

The deal follows recent approval from the Indian Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs for the development of the project.

Estimated to cost $2.5bn, the plant will source coal from the Pachwara South coal block in Jharkhand. The project’s unit I, II and III are scheduled to be commissioned in 52 months, 58 months and 64 months respectively from the start of construction work.
