CCGT Plants in India - other states
Dabhol
Location: Maharashtra
Operator: Ratnagiri Gas and Power Pvt Ltd
Configuration: 1 X 670-MW, 2+1 CCGT, 2 X 740-MW 2+1 CCGT with 9001 FA gas turbines
Fuel: naphtha, natural gas, distillate oil
Operation: 1999-2007
HRSG supplier: Vogt, Kawasaki
T/G supplier: General Electric
EPC: Bechtel
Quick facts: Dabhol is on a 1,700ac coastal site about 160km south of Mumbai. It was originally developed by Enron and budgeted at $2.8bn with 3 X 695-MW CCGT blocks and an LNG terminal. After 7yrs of development, Unit-1 was dedicated in May 1999, about 2yrs behind the original schedule. The $1.8bn Phase-II financing closed in Apr 1999 and in Jun, a $300mn order was placed with GE for two CC 209FA blocks to extend the project. From Jan to May 2001, the four Phase-II GTs were progressively synchronized and steam blows completed on the HRSGs. The Dabhol-2 steam turbine was rolled in April and the Dabhol-3 steam set was nearly ready for testing when work was halted on 17 Jun 2001. In May 2001, MSEB unilaterally rescinded the DPC PPA and Dabhol Phase I was shutdown. Finally, the state government and other parties took over the project, which gradually returned to service during 2006/07, first on naphtha and finally on natural gas as originally designed. The plant closed again in Mar 2013 after prolonged PPA pricing issues and fuel shortages. After years of delay, the plant restarted partially fueled by LNG in Nov 2015.
