Bhopal, Feb 9 (IANS) State-run engineering and manufacturing major Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has won four contracts worth Rs.70 billion (Rs.7,000 crore) for the supply and installation of electrical equipment for thermal power projects, the company announced Monday.
The projects with a total capacity of 3,250 MW are located in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.
Announcing this, BHEL spokesman P.C. Rai said the company has the state-of-the-art technology to set up thermal plants suited to Indian conditions.
BHEL won the contracts from National Thermal Power Corp (NTPC), NLC Tamil Nadu Power Ltd (NTPL) and Maharashtra Power Generation Co. (Mahagenco) through international competitive bidding (ICB), he said.
NTPC has placed two orders for steam generator and electrostatic precipitator (ESP) packages for its 2×500 MW Vindhyachal Super Thermal Power Project (STPP) stage-IV in Madhya Pradesh and the 2×500 MW Rihand STPP stage-III in Uttar Pradesh.
Under NTPL’s contract, BHEL will set up 2×500 MW Tuticorin Thermal Power Project (TPP) in Tamil Nadu. These units will add 24 million units every day to the grid on commissioning.
The order from Mahagenco envisages setting up of the Parli TPP Stage-III (1×250 MW) in Maharashtra, wherein BHEL’s scope of work involves design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of the main plant package, Rai said.
The key equipment for the contracts, according to Rai, will be manufactured at BHEL’s Haridwar, Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Bhopal and Jhansi plants. The company’s power sector regions will undertake erection and commissioning of the equipment.
BHEL has now enhanced its manufacturing capacity to 10,000 MW per annum to meet the rising demand for power in the country. The company will further increase its annual capacity to 15,000 MW by December 2009 and to 20,000 MW by December 2011, the official said.
