GE Power India has announced winning a Rs 142 crore order from NTPC for supply and installation of low NOx combustion system for 10 GW of thermal power plant .
A company statement said this is the first project awarded on such a large scale by NTPC to install this technology at its thermal power plants.
“The project involves in-combustion system modification of the boiler by staging the combustion air in the furnace to reduce the generation of fuel and thermal NOx during the combustion process,” it said.
“The combustion modification technology can help reduce 30-40 per cent of NOx emissions from these coal-fired boilers up to a level of less than 400 mg/Nm3 at 6 per cent oxygen content in flue gas on dry gas basis at Induced Draft Fan outlet,” added the statement.
