Rolls-Royce Wins Contract in India
Rolls-Royce has recieved an order from India's Gas Authority India Ltd. (GAIL) for four RB211 packages for the 500 km Vijaipur-Dadri Bawana gas pipeline project. The new contract is valued at US$90 million. This follows a 2008 order for six RB211 gas compressor sets for the 600 km Dahej-Vijaipur pipline.
The four new RB211-GT61 Dry Low Emissions (DLE) units will be sited at two compressor stations, Kailaras and Chainsa, joining the other six to be located at Vijaipur and Jhabua. All ten sets will drive RFBB36 gas compressors designed and manufactured by Rolls-Royce. When all the units are installed they will increase the flow of gas along the lines to help to power industries such as fertilizer, steel and petrochemical in addition to thousands of homes in the Indian states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi and Punjab.
The RB211 gas generators will be manufactured at the company’s Montreal, Quebec, Canada, facility while packaging of the units and the manufacture of the compressors will take place in Mount Vernon, Ohio, U.S.A. All the equipment for this latest contract is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2011.
