BHEL commissions 600MW thermal power unit in Chhattisgarh, India

Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has commissioned a 600MW unit at a 1200MW thermal power project in Chhattisgarh, India.

Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has commissioned a 600MW unit at a 1200MW thermal power project in Chhattisgarh, India.

The project is located in Dhabra in Janjgir Champa district of the state. It will house two units that will have a capacity of 600MW each.

This is the second unit commissioned by the BHEL for the facility owned by Dainik Bhaskar Power (DBPL), the first being installed last year.

The scope of work for the power manufacturer included design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection and commissioning of steam turbines, generators and boilers, along with associated auxiliaries and electricals, as well as state-of-the-art controls and instrumentation (C&I) and electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) at the facility.

The in-house engineered four-cylinder 600MW rating TG set installed at the facility by BHEL is in compliance with the performance standards set by the Central Electricity Authority of India.

The Indian firm has been supporting the power development programme in Chhattisgarh.

BHEL maintains a cumulative installed capacity of 11,400MW in the state, which accounts for nearly 68% of its total installed capacity.

Earlier this month, BHEL also commissioned a 800MW supercritical boiler at the Sri Damodaram Sanjeevaiah thermal power plant (SDSTPP) in Andhra Pradesh, another state in India. The firm has also won an engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) contract for developing a 1,080MW thermal energy project in Telangana, India.
