Sravanthi Energy Seeks Power From GE
Sravanthi Energy, a private power developer in India, has turned to GE for its gas turbine technology, which will help run a 450 MW power plant in Kashipur, India.
GE will supply four Frame 6FA gas turbines and associated generators for the Sravanthi project, which will be developed in two, 225 MW phases, according to GE. Commercial operation of phase one will start in the third quarter of this year, with phase two set for the first quarter of 2012.
The primary fuel for the power plant is expected to be supplied by a pipeline that the Gas Authority of India is constructing to bring natural gas into the region. The natural gas supplied to the power plant would also be used to support petrochemical, automotive and other industrial activities in the Kashipur and Rudrapur areas.
