India's power equipment manufacturer Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has commissioned a 600MW unit in a coal-based thermal power project in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

The Shree Singaji Thermal Power Project is located near Dongaliya village in the Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh.

The plant consists of two units, each of 600MW. The first unit was commissioned by BHEL in November 2013.

BHEL was responsible for the design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection and commissioning and civil, structural and architectural work of main power block equipment for the unit.

The equipment included steam turbines, generators, electrostatic precipitators and boilers along with associated auxiliaries and electricals, controls and instrumentation.

This in-house manufactured 600MW thermal unit comprises four cylinders.

Nine out of the 21 600MW units contracted by BHEL have already been commissioned.

The public sector enterprise has a share of more than 90% in the state utility's thermal generating capacity.

BHEL is also currently executing a single 500MW unit in Vindhyachal and two 800MW units at NTPC's Gadarwara coal projects in Madhya Pradesh.
