Black & Veatch worked with Reliance Power Limited (Reliance) on a sole-source basis to design the Samalkot power plant, a 2,500 megawatt (MW) combined cycle facility. Black & Veatch is also supporting the design of a gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) and high voltage cable system associated with the project. Samalkot is among the largest gas-fired plants of its kind in India. Producing the energy equivalent to power more than 2 million homes, the plant will support economic development across India’s southeastern region.
“The team of Reliance and Black & Veatch worked together to solve some very complex and integrated problems. As one of the top consultant companies, we hold them with the highest esteem and respect. On the whole, we have found that it is beneficial for both Black & Veatch and Reliance to work together and learn new things.”
Kul Bhatia, Senior Vice President, Reliance
