RJM International, British Flame Research Council member and the UK–based provider of emissions reduction technology and equipment to the global power generation and large combustion plant sectors, announced this week that they have signed a Representative Agreement with Indian company, Buka Power, based in the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu.
Under the terms of the agreement, Buka Power will act as the representative for RJM International in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Karnataka, Chattisgarh and West Bengal, be responsible for developing sales of RJM’s range of products and services in these territories and be the point of contact for sales across the rest of India.
With a population of 1.3 billion people and a confirmed government ambition to deliver reliable and affordable 24/7 power across India, the opportunities for emissions and efficiency experts such as RJM International to work in partnership with Indian boilermakers and utility supply companies are now considerable.
Commenting on the representative agreement, John Goldring, Managing Director of RJM said, “India is committed to a major expansion of its power generation capacity and whilst renewables are increasingly important, a significant proportion of the additional gigawatts required will be delivered by thermal plant.
“Within that growing thermal-fired segment of the market, Indian coal will be the primary fuel source and this is where RJM’s ground-breaking technologies can play an important role, helping to keep emissions as low as possible without compromising on operating efficiencies or cost.
“In addition, our expertise in co-firing with biomass is also something that has attracted the attention of the Indian market.”
