Fired Up To Meet The Demand
Two new plants belonging to two joint ventures between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) and Larsen & Toubro Ltd. (L&T) of India are now operational.
The plants were built to manufacture supercritical-pressure coal-fired boilers and steam turbines and generators respectively, according to the MHI. The joint ventures were formed to help met India's strong electricity demand, MHI said.
The two new plants are built on a site adjacent to L&T's existing plant in an industrial park at Hazira, Gujarat, in northwestern India. The 54 000 m² boiler production plant, which has started welding and assembling boiler parts, is managed by L&T MHI Boilers Private Ltd. (LMB), a joint venture headquartered in Mumbai, India.
The plant for manufacturing steam turbines and generators is operated by L&T MHI Turbine Generators Private Ltd. (LMTG), a joint venture based in Mumbai, India. The 53 000 m² factory consists of a turbine production building and a generator manufacturing building. The plant is currently producing supercritical-pressure steam turbines for a coal-fired plant under construction in Andhra Pradesh, India.
