Reliance Infrastructure (R-Infra) has emerged as lowest bidder in a state-run power generator NTPC tender for the flue gas de-sulphurisation (FGD) works of its 3x500 MW coal-fired thermal plant in Haryana's Jhajjar, informed sources said on Thursday.

According to industry sources here, the order value of the project, designed to control noxious sulphur dioxide emissions, is expected to be around Rs 567 crore.

R-Infra was the lowest bidder in a field that included leading engineering and construction companies like state-run including BHEL, L&T and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power system, the sources added.

The scope of the work includes design, engineering supply, transportation to site, erection and civil work, testing and commissioning of complete FGD system.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 20 months from receipt of the Letter of Award for the first unit with those for the subsequent units due each at three months gap, according to the sources.

R-Infra has already installed FGD system in its Dahanu Thermal Power Plant in compliance with the statutory guidelines on pollution.

With a view to checking rising levels of air pollution, the Union Environment Ministry had, in 2015, notified the revised standards for emissions to be met by thermal power plants.

The Central Pollution Control Board has issued directions to thermal power plants to ensure compliance with its revised implementation plan for installation of flue gas de-sulphurisation and other emission control equipment, Parliament was informed last month.

Earlier, Power Minister R.K. Singh told the Lok Sabha in a written reply that the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) had submitted a revised phased implementation plan to be implemented by 2022 for installing FGD in plants for 414 units with a total capacity of 1,61,402 MW, and upgradation of electrostatic precipitators in 222 plants for a capacity of 64,525 MW.

The Minister also said that the CPCB has informed that the plants which do not have space for setting up FGD systems are to explore alternate technologies such as dry sorbent injection or use of low sulphur coal to comply with the new norms.
