With these three Wet FGD projects together, GE will help NTPC to treat 35 million cubic meters per hour of flue gas and will remove up to 108,400 tons per year of SO2 which will be converted into gypsum byproduct for use in the construction industry.
These new contracts are in addition to the Wet FGD projects which were awarded earlier to GE: TelanganaSTPP 2x800 MW, Solapur, Meja, Tanda - each of 2x660 MW and Unchahar - 1x500 MW. In addition to this, GE has already executed WFGD for 1x500 MW Vindhyachal TPP.
