Indian power equipment manufacturer Bharat Heavy Electricals (Bhel) has commissioned a 500MW Kosti Thermal Power Station (TPS) in Sudan, which is claimed to be the largest in the African country.

Bhel was responsible for designing, manufacturing, supply and installation of four power units at the facility under an engineering, procurement and contruction (EPC) contract awarded by the Ministry of Electricity in Sudan.

The deal is worth $457.5m. It also included provision for associated civil works at the plant.

Each of the thermal energy units installed at the facility has a power producing capacity of 125MW.

"The deal is worth $457.5m."

Bhel has designed special boilers for the thermal facility, which will use crude-oil from South Sudan as fuel.

The firm has manufactured major equipment for the project, including the boilers, steam-turbines, generators, controls and instrumentation (C&I), transformers in-house. Bhel has also built a water supply canal for the project connecting it with the White Nile River.
