Toshiba JSW Power Systems Private Ltd. (Toshiba JSW), a Toshiba Group company based in Chennai, India has been awarded a full EPC Contract by Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd. (UPRVUNL), wholly owned state thermal power utility with present generating capacity of 4933MW. The value of the contract is about USD540 million. Toshiba JSW will carry out Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) of the entire thermal power plant, including civil and boiler island package to be completed within 48 month from the Contract award.
UPRVUNL’s evaluation reflects the high performance and the reliability of Toshiba’s ultra-supercritical steam turbines and generators, and the company’s capabilities in integrating engineering and manufacturing functions. Toshiba can provide customers with competitive EPC solutions, and the company believes it is an acknowledgement of Toshiba’s excellent track record for successful completion of challenging projects around the world within contractual plant completion schedules.
Mr. Yoshiaki Inayama, Managing Director of Toshiba JSW said, “We have a long standing relationship with UPRVUNL. Toshiba initially entered the thermal power market by supplying two 500MW subcritical steam turbines and generators at Anpara B thermal power plant, and later cemented our association by securing another order for supplying two units of 660MW supercritical steam turbines and generators package to Meja power plant in Uttar Pradesh. We are very honoured to once again work with UPRVUNL for Harduaganj Ultra Supercritical Thermal Power Project to provide ultra supercritical thermal power plant. This takes us a step further in our endeavour to contribute to Indian’s suitable power supply by its endeavour of continued innovations.”

Ltd. into Toshiba JSW Turbine and Generator Pvt. Ltd., a manufacturer of turbines and generators based in Chennai, Tamil Nadu state. The company, renamed Toshiba JSW Power Systems Pvt. Ltd., is positioned to provide full EPC solutions for thermal power plants, and is working to expand its business in India and the surrounding region.
