The 18 pumps include six boiler feedwater pumps, six boiler feedwater booster pumps and six condensate pumps. Three of each type will be installed at the plant’s Units 1 and 2 (660 MW each).
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has been licensing design and production technologies to BHEL since 2007 for boiler feedwater pumps, boiler feedwater booster pumps, circulating water pumps and condensate pumps for subcritical- and supercritical-pressure thermal power plants with generation capacities of 500–1000 MW. This is the first order that BHEL and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries have received jointly.
The delivery is scheduled for 2011.
