KARACHI: General Electric (GE) announced a major achievement in its contract with China Machinery Engineering Corp (CMEC) with the delivery of critical equipment for boilers, for Thar Block II Power Plant.
The delivery included cyclones, water walls, tubes sections, soot blowers and air preheaters.
GE signed a contract with CMEC to supply two 330 megawatt (MW) Circulating Fluidised Bed (CFB) boilers for the project in May 2016. CFB boiler technology is particularly suited for newly-mined low-calorific value coals (ie coals that release relatively low amounts of heat) like Pakistani Thar lignite.
“The Thar Block II Power Plant is progressing ahead of planned timelines to deliver additional power
to the national grid, utilising the rich coal reserves in Thar,” said CMEC Vice President Fang Yanshui.
