PILSEN, Czech Republic, April 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
India is home to over a billion people and an installed electrical capacity of 280GW. It is also a traditional trading partner for the Czech Republic, with economic and commercial ties dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. For Czech turbine specialist Doosan Škoda Power, this special relationship is manifested in the 120 steam turbines the company has delivered so far to Indian customers.
In India, Doosan Skoda Power operates through 100% subsidiary, Skoda Power Pvt. Ltd. As well as being local business partner, the team in India also supports the implementation of projects in the territory through the delivery of local supplies and services, as well as providing maintenance and services for equipment already in operation.
Recent high-profile projects in India include the commissioning of a 130MW turbine for the Pioneer combined cycle power plant (CCPP) in Maharashtra state, and the supply of a 210MW steam turbine as part of the upgrade of the existing Bandel coal-fired power plant in West Bengal. An installation of a 180MW turbine at the OPG coal-fired unit in Tamil state are another recent success story, as the first single-body reheat turbine in the Indian market and one of the largest turbines of its kind in the world. Doosan Skoda Power's ability to secure such prominent contracts when importing key equipment from the EU is also considered an extraordinary success.
Doosan Skoda Power is proud to have more than 110 years' experience in the supply of steam turbines ranging from 10 to 1,200 MW for all applications, including retrofit and modernization. "Not only does the quality of our products rank among the world's best, we also have a great team of technicians who understand our customers and ensure that we consistently meet and exceed their requirements by building technical flexibility into our solutions," said Jaroslav Ira, Skoda Power Pvt. Ltd. Patronage over larger delivery units, including the fitting out of complete turbine rooms, also belongs among other abilities.
Doosan Skoda Power has been part of the Doosan Group since 2009. Thanks to many years of experience and technical know-how, which is currently used by parent company Doosan Heavy Industries in Korea, the enterprise has become the global centre of research and development for steam turbines for the entire Doosan group.
