a wholly owned subsidiary of Larsen and Toubro, was also recognized as an honorable mention in the Heat Rate
Leadership and Performance category.
1949-1955: The weighted annual average heat rate
for fossil-fueled steam-electric power plants in the United States, as published by EIA in Thermal-Electric Plant Construction Cost and Annual Production Expenses--1981 and Steam-Electric Plant Construction Cost and Annual Production Expenses--1978.
The plant maintains low heat rate
at partial loads both by taking advantage of the individual genset's ability to maintain low heat rates
at partial load and also by taking individual gensets out of service to maintain individual genset load at full load.
