Balance of Plants
 
 
Balance of plant refers to all technicalities in handling mechanical and electrical systems excluding BTG in power plants. Right from conceptualising the layout to designing and engineering, quality check to vendor management, TEECL is one among the few who is competent in 100% delivery of all projects right on time on the back of robust in-house consultancies and competencies.
 
BOP has been one of the most specialised areas of TEECL which includes installation of fuel oil handling systems both for thermal power stations and the industry sector right since the 70s. TEECL is a pioneer in this area, having successfully installed more than 50 installations for thermal power stations including major super thermal power projects of NTPC.
 
In the early 80s, packaging systems in thermal power stations witnessed a shift and more and more customers started opting for awarding turnkey contracts on single source responsibility concept. TEECL also started focusing on contracts with higher value addition through engineering and technological innovation and started developing its resources and capacity accordingly.
 
It was at that time that NTPC was founded with highly ambitious plans for installing power stations. TEECL associated with NTPC with its first project undertaking fuel oil handling systems at Singrauli Thermal Power Project, Stage-I on turnkey basis. This was followed by fuel oil handling system for Korba Super Thermal Power Project, Ramagundam Super Thermal Power Project and so on. Based on its performance in terms of delivery with quality, TEECL started getting one after another Order from NTPC both in mechanical and electrical groups and NTPC became one of TEECL’s major customers.
 
The auxiliary packages that TEECL Utility Group executes in the power sector include fuel oil handling system and water system including intake and make-up water system. TEECL is now able to take on projects with commercial risks to the tune of Rs. 300 crore. The Company has a sharp focus of building national assets through a track record progress through performance.
 
TEECL’s core strength comprises committed project management and execution team, in-house engineering strength, adequate construction equipment and machines, testing equipment and timely delivery without compromising on quality aspects.
