The Hindu newspaper has reported on an order recently received by Bharat Heavy Electricals for equipment for a US$1.81 billion (€1.45 billion) coal-fired plant to be built in the state of Jharkhand, eastern India. The new supercritical plant will consist of three 800 MW units and be equipped with flue gas desulphurisation and selective catalytic reduction technology, allowing the closure of older, dirtier plants already in operation in the state. Bharat Heavy Electricals installed the same supercritical technology last year for the first time at a plant in the southern state of Karnataka.
