The new emission norms for coal-based thermal power plants in India, introduced limits on oxides of nitrogen emissions.
This move, has made Indian emission norms one of the most stringent in the world. The new norms have called for mandatory installation of SCR systems in upcoming power plants, including those currently under construction and many existing power plants.
“This strengthens L&T’s capability to cater to power plant requirements meeting new emission norms and contribute to the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative,” Shailendra Roy, CEO and Managing Director-L&T Power, and Whole-Time Director (Power, Heavy Engineering & Defence), L&T said.
LMB is currently executing 12 units of supercritical / ultra-supercritical steam generator packages of 660 mw capacity in India totaling 7,920 mw.
In addition, six supercritical units (660/700 MW) have already achieved commercial operation.
