2x700 MW Rajpura Thermal Power Plant

L&T MHI Boilers Pvt Ltd

Rajpura, India
2011 Be Inspired Award Finalist - Innovation in Structural Engineering

To help meet India’s growing demand for power, the Government of Punjab and Larsen & Toubro (L&T) partnered to develop a 2x700 megawatt thermal power station in Rajpura. L&T is engineering, manufacturing, erecting, and commissioning the supercritical boilers, and by adopting 3D modeling techniques to perform integrated design and clash detection, L&T eliminated interferences during the engineering stage to ensure smooth execution.

Designing the asymmetric boiler structure was complicated by the need to ensure safety in the event of a severe earthquake. L&T analyzed and designed the structure for various critical load combinations and seismic forces using STAAD.Pro. Integration with 3D detailing software supported extraction of fabrication drawings. This process reduced man-hours and produced error-free output.
