Paguthan CCPP (Formerly known as GPEC) the 655 MW gas-based combined cycle power plant, marked the entry of CLP Group of Hong Kong into the Indian power sector business. It is one of the first Indian independent power projects. The plant sprawls across 130 hectares of land & is located 10 Kms from Bharuch in the state of Gujarat.
Apart from its consistent year-on-year plant performance, the Paguthan CCPP has set a benchmark in the industry for complying with highest level of safety and environmental standards, nationally and internationally. Paguthan CCPPis a 1SO 14001 certified company complying with the highest standards of environment conservation.
Paguthan CCPP is equipped with 3 x 138 MW Gas Turbines and 1 x 241 MW Steam Turbine generating units. It has been maintaining its equipment for optimizing the plant availability by using most efficient O&M practices. The plant has made a significant contribution to the availability of reliable power on the local grid supporting it in times of varying grid demands.
Paguthan CCPP installed Si3D blades and vanes in two of its three gas turbines, to enhance their efficiency at base load by approximately 1.2%, thereby reducing the fuel use and associated CO2 emissions. Paguthan CCPP is the first in Asia and third globally to use this technology-upgrade of Si3D blades and vanes, to retrofit its gas turbines of the 1990’s design.
