GE Energy will supply gas turbines to Sravanthi Energy for its 450MW power project at Kashipur in Uttarakhand. GE will provide four gas turbines along with associated generators for the Sravanthi project, which is expected to be constructed in two 225MW phases. Sravanthi Energy intends to begin commercial operation of phase one in the third quarter of 2011 and phase two in the first quarter of 2012. The primary fuel for the new plant will be supplied by a pipeline that the Gas Authority of India is constructing to bring natural gas into the region. In addition to the power plant, the natural gas will be used to sustain petrochemical, automotive and other industrial activities in the Kashipur and Rudrapur areas.
