Solyvent Fläkt AB of Sweden has been awarded major contracts by BGR Boilers Ltd. (BGR) to design and deliver in total 36 large axial PF fans for NTPC’s Solapur, Meja and Raghunatphur coal-fired power plants in India. 

Each plant will have two 660 MW supercritical boilers, increasing the power generating capacity of NTPC by 3,960 MW. BGR, the main EPC contractor for all the three projects will take delivery of all equipment in 2014 and 2015.

Fläkt Woods’ existing PF fan references in NTPC power plants, the coming investment in full scale testing facilities at Solyvent Fläkt
(India) Pvt Ltd., located in Chennai India, and their capability to offer
pre-approval from NTPC convinced BGR to select Solyvent Fläkt as their main fan supplier.

Solyvent Fläkt AB is Fläkt Woods’ Center of Excellence for large axial fans and will lead the projects technically, supported by Solyvent Fläkt (India) Pvt Ltd. locally. Both companies are part of the world’s largest air and gas handling organization, Fläkt Woods Group.
