Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won its second contract in two years from Gas Authority India Limited (GAIL) to supply power systems for a major gas pipeline project. The new contract is valued at $90 million.

This new order is for four Rolls-Royce RB211 packages which will be used on the 500km Vijaipur-Dadri Bawana Pipeline (VDPL) running from Vijaipur to Dadri, part of the larger VDPL project. This follows a $130 million contract award in 2008 for six RB211 gas compressor sets for the 600km Dahej-Vijaipur (DVPL) pipeline that runs between Dahej in Gujrat to Vijaipur in Madhya Pradesh.

All ten Rolls-Royce gas turbine packages will be used to increase the flow of gas on these key projects in India, which will support GAIL in contributing to the country’s infrastructure requirement.

Tony Ruegger, Rolls-Royce, Executive Vice-President – Oil & Gas, said, “GAIL is investing aggressively to expand their natural gas pipeline network, and we are especially pleased that once again they have selected Rolls-Royce compression equipment for this major infrastructure project.”

The four new RB211-GT61 Dry Low Emissions (DLE) units will be sited at two compressor stations, Kailaras and Chainsa, joining the other six to be located at Vijaipur and Jhabua.

All ten sets will drive RFBB36 gas compressors designed and manufactured by Rolls-Royce. When all the units are installed they will increase the flow of gas along the lines to help to power industries such as fertiliser, steel and petrochemical in addition to many thousands of homes in the states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi and Punjab.

The RB211 gas generators will be manufactured at the company’s Montreal, Quebec, Canada facility while packaging of the units and the manufacture of the compressors will take place in Mount Vernon, Ohio. All the equipment for this latest contract is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2011.
