Bhubaneswar, August 16 (Odisha.in) The engineers of Neelachal Ispat Nigam and Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) have successfully commissioned Gas-Fired turbine to generate 24 Mega Watt of power in Orissa’s Jajpur district.
The waste gas from the Coke Oven is used to run the turbine. This technology was adopted for the first time in India.
The Indian Steel Industries which have Coke Ovens can now adopt this technology to generate power by gainfully using the waste gases of the Coke Oven.
The BHEL have installed the gas-fired turbine which effectively generated power today. Engineers of BHEL and NINL were happy at this unique success in India.
Though steel plants in China have adopted this technology, so far no steel plants in India had installed gas-fired turbine for generation of power. NINL have one Coke Oven only at present.
