India-based company Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 250MW coal-based thermal power plant in the north-eastern state of Assam.

The plant is the second 250MW facility to be commissioned at the Bongaigaon Thermal Power Station (TPS). Located at Salakati, near Bongaigaon in the Kokrajhar district, work was carried out by Indian electric power distribution company National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).

BHEL is executing installation of three coal-fired units of 250MW each. In June 2015, the company commissioned the first unit, which is currently in operation. The third and final units are in an advanced stage of commissioning.

"The Bongaigaon TPS project has been developed following the demolition of an old 4x60MW power station."

The Bongaigaon TPS project has been developed following the demolition of an old 4x60MW power station of Assam State Electricity Board.

BHEL is also executing a 98.4MW gas-based combined cycle power project at Namrup in Assam. Already commissioned in the open cycle mode, the plant is in the final stages of commissioning the combined cycle mode.

Recently, the company has also successfully commissioned a 660MW supercritical thermal unit at Mouda Super Thermal Power Station (STPS) in Mouda in Nagpur district of Maharashtra.
