Siemens Limited completed the supply, installation and commissioning of an 8.5 MW steam turbine, gear box and related control panels for Kolkata-based Shakambhari Ispat & Power Limited, one of the leading manufacturers of steel and supply of power. This installation is in addition to an 8 MW steam turbine that was delivered in a record time of three months.
"Being part of a steel producing plant, continuous operation has always been a concern for us. The association with Siemens has given us access to a wide variety of technically superior solutions which address our primary concern. The use of efficient turbines has already reduced consumption of coal. Moreover, solutions such as Remote Diagnostic System, Combustion Optimizer and new-age control systems will definitely reduce the downtime of the plant and turn it into a more profitable unit,” said Deepak Kumar Agarwal, Chairman and Managing Director, Shakambhari Ispat & Power Limited.
