Thermax wins new captive power plant order in Africa
Published: 08 December 2014


Thermax Ltd has won a repeat order from a leading African industrial major to build and commission a captive power plant for one of the conglomerate’s cement plants.

The scope of the project includes system design, manufacture, supply and supervision of erection and commissioning of the plant.

“We are excited about the business opportunities emerging in Africa. Our two-year project management experience in the continent should really help in seamlessly executing these projects,” said Thermax MD and CEO, MS Unnikrishnan.

The power plant, to be commissioned within a timeframe of 15-16 moths, will utilise the latest generation AFBC (Atmospheric Fluidised Bed Combustion boilers) and high-pressure steam cycle. Air cooled condensers will ensure low water utilisation by the power plant, which has also be been designed to respond to varying load requirements to the cement plant, according to a statement by Thermax.
 
This is the second order received by Thermax from the undisclosed African company.
