Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 250 MW coal-fired thermal power plant (TPP) in Bihar, India.
The 250 MW unit has been commissioned at the upcoming, greenfield 1000 MW Nabinagar thermal power project (4 x 250 MW), being set up by Bhartiya Rail Bijlee Co. Ltd (BRBCL), a joint venture of NTPC Ltd and the Indian Railways.
This is the first 250 MW unit to be commissioned at Nabinagar TPP, located at Nabinagar in Aurangabad district of Bihar.
Execution of the other three units is also in progress.
BHEL has a long-standing partnership with NTPC and has supplied over 30 000 MW of the coal-fired power plants of NTPC and its JVs that account for around 80% of NTPC’s coal-fired installed capacity.
The 200 – 270 MW rating class sets supplied by BHEL form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above national as well as international benchmarks.
