KEPL designed and developed API 611compliant steam turbine up to a power rating of 3000 Kw for the global API industry. This first “K-TUR” was supplied through ISGEC Heavy Engineering Limited, India with a rating of 380 Kw. This turbine is capable of variable speed and power operation from 30 per cent to 110 per cent of the boiler load and has been designed in a way that it has the best operational efficiencies over its designed life of 20 years.
In addition to No Load Mechanical Run Testing (NLMRT) as per API 611. KEPL also tested the turbine on part load for the first time using a calibrated pump to evaluate its operational performance vis-a vis the designed performance. “KEPL is the first company from India to have developed steam turbine as per the international specification. After successful commissioning, the officials form ISGEC heavy Engineering Limited complimented KEPL for excellent design and smooth operations. KEPL is now ready to commission its indigenously developed API steam turbine at Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), Vadodara, India” said Ashish Deshmukh, Associate Vice President-Turbine division, KEPL.
