About Us


DESEIN PRIVATE LTD. was founded in 1965 by late Mr. O.P. Gupta, an eminent power engineer & entrepreneur. The company was started with a group of 3 engineers with a mission to provide engineering consultancy services of international standards. Today, it has core competency in all infrastructure projects covering all disciplines of engineering, viz., civil, structural, architectural, mechanical, electrical, chemical, environmental, controls & instrumentation.

Earlier, only the State Electricity Boards built power plants and very few industries set-up power plants for generating power for captive use. The State Governments always outsourced the engineering consultancy tasks to foreign multi-nationals. DESEIN wanted India to be self-reliant in this sector and hence started the company with the motto "Self Reliance in Engineering".

With sustained efforts and hard work, DESEIN got a full consultancy job from concept to commissioning from Andhra Pradesh State Electricity Board for their 2x110 MW Thermal Power Station at Kothagudem. Since then, DESEIN has been an engineering partner & active participant in the nation's power sector growth story by designing over 38,000 MW of India's power generating facilities. Today, the company provides consultancy engineering services for units upto 800 MW capacity which is the largest unit size being built in India at present with super critical technology. DESEIN has also kept pace with the latest tools and developed the capability to do detailed engineering using 3D modelling for smooth & timely execution of projects.

DESEIN has also been actively associated with Central Government statutory bodies such as Central Board of Irrigation & Power (CBIP), Central Electricity Authority (CEA), etc. for standardization & modernization of thermal power plant design & engineering.

Protection of environment has always been a major concern and in 1987, DESEIN set up a separate division manned by a group of specialists in this field to provide environmental engineering solutions to mitigate pollution arising out of new projects. Since then, the team has undertaken specialized studies to determine the impact and suggest remedial measures for setting up of a large number of new projects. The contribution made by this group has been of immense value for the preservation of environmental balance for the well being of the present and future generations.

Over the years, DESEIN has also developed the skills for providing operation and maintenance services for power stations. DESEIN has successfully executed a 3-year contract for operation & maintenance of 4x120 MW Power Plant and associated Desalination Plants in Libya way back in 1980. Since then many more assignments for complete power plants as well as individual systems were undertaken and at present DESEIN is executing operation & maintenance contracts at 15 power plants in India & abroad.

The Founder's mission to achieve "Self Reliance in Engineering" has already become a reality and the company has widened its core competency from Power Plant Engineering to providing "Design Services for Infrastructure".
