Manufacturing capability exists in the country for the equipment/machinery required for setting up Biomass Projects.  Except for some critical control equipment, most of the equipment can be procured from indigenous sources. 

1. Boilers

A number of large manufacturers  have established capabilities for manufacturing spreader stoker fired, traveling grate/dumping grate boilers; atmospheric pressure fluidized bed boilers and circulating fluidized bed boilers. 

Due to recent upsurge of interest in co-generation for surplus power, leading manufacturers are further upgrading their capabilities for high efficiency boilers. 


2. Steam Turbines

Almost all combinations – condensing, single extraction/double extraction condensing, back pressure, etc. are now being manufactured in the country with full after sales services.  The efficiencies of turbines now being offered are comparable to the best in the world. 

3. Other Equipment

Apart from the main equipment, there is a well-established capability and capacity for manufacture of related equipment for use of biomass for energy including harvesters, balers, briquetting equipment, handling and firing equipment, pollution control systems etc.    Many multinational companies have set up manufacturing facilities in the country for such equipment.
