(BSE:534674, NSE: DUCON) - Ducon Technologies (I) Pvt. Ltd. (“DTIPL”) announced that the Company is experiencing increased proposal activity in its Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) systems market in India.
Aron Govil, Chairman of the Company cited several reasons for this increased activity:
(i) India’s economy has been growing steadily at an average annual rate of 7% in recent years supported by market reforms, huge inflows of foreign direct investment, growing foreign currency reserves.
(ii) In order to sustain this growth rate, India will need to triple or quadruple its total electricity generation capacity from 148 GW to nearly 800 GW by 2026.
(iii) This growing electricity demand coupled with increasing dependency on coal & Oil for power generation is expected to boost the India’s market demand for FGD system over the next five years because the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MOEF) in December 2015, revised its standards for coal-based Thermal Power Plants, by requiring reduction of sulfur dioxide to 7.3 kg/Mwh and Nitrogen Oxide to 4.8 kg/Mwh in order to help improve the ambient air quality in the country.
“DTIPL is presently involved in bidding on over 10,000 MW of FGD projects in the coming next 4 months in India,” continued Mr. Govil.
