|Kirloskar Brothers Ltd (KBL), a leading company in  global water management solutions, has announced successful commissioning of India's largest concrete volute pumps for condenser cooling water application for the first unit of 4,000 MW (5 units of 800 MW each) thermal power project of Coastal Gujarat Power Ltd (a Tata group company) at Mundra, Gujarat. This, incidentally, is India's first ultra mega (above 800 mw) thermal power plant.

KBL is executing an order for 10 cooling water concrete volute pumps for this project. Each unit consists of two sets of concrete volute pumps with a capacity of 17500 litres per second per pump driven by 5.2 MW HT motors. All 10 pumps will be installed at a single location, making it the World's largest condenser cooling water pumping system for a thermal power plant handling 175,000 litres per sec.

This 4000 MW power plant project is expected to benefit close to 16 million domestic consumers apart from supplying cost competitive power to industry and agriculture.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Ravindra Pande, vice president & sector head (power), KBL said, "This project at Mundra was a major technological challenge because such massive concrete volute pumps were never before deployed in a power plant to handle sea water."

On Monday, KBL ended 1.85% up at Rs151 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex declined 0.97 to 19,262.54.

India Inc’s business optimism rises for April-June quarter: Survey

"Although the business optimism has continued to rise during Q2 2011, some signs of cautiousness are visible in the relatively lower resultant optimism for volume of sales, net profits and new orders as compared to Q1 2011," D&B India president & CEO Kaushal Sampat said

New Delhi: The business optimism of India Inc has increased for the second quarter of 2011, though some signs of cautiousness are visible, following increased concerns of high inflation and rising interest rates, reports PTI quoting consultancy firm Dun and Bradstreet (D&B).

"Composite Business Optimism Index stands at 183.3 during Q2 (April-June) 2011, an increase of 28.4% as compared to Q2 2010. On a quarter-on-quarter basis, the index recorded an increase of 7.1%," D&B said in a survey.

The survey was conducted in March this year, following announcement of the Union Budget.

Based on the responses received, it was observed that three out of the six optimism indices-namely, selling prices, inventory levels and employee levels-have registered an increase as compared to first quarter of 2011.

However, cautiousness in business sentiment on account of high inflation and expected hardening of interest rates is visible from relatively lower optimism with regards to volume of sales, new orders, and net profits during the second quarter of 2011 as compared to first quarter of 2011.

"Although the business optimism has continued to rise during Q2 2011, some signs of cautiousness are visible in the relatively lower resultant optimism for volume of sales, net profits and new orders as compared to Q1 2011, following increased concerns of high inflation and rising interest rates," D&B India president & CEO Kaushal Sampat said.

Going forward, Mr Sampat said, the performance of the monsoon, which is a critical determinant of food inflation as well as rural demand, will be crucial in influencing the business sentiment.

Food inflation fell to a four-month low of 9.18% for the week ended 26th March, even as wholesale price inflation stood at 8.31% in February.

"Major policy announcements-both on the monetary and fiscal front-would also play an important role in shaping business sentiment in the ensuing quarter. The emerging geo-political situation in the Middle-East and North Africa would be an important determinant of business sentiment in the coming future," he added.
