Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has successfully commissioned another 600 MW coal-fired thermal power plant in the state of Telangana, India.

The unit has been commissioned at the 2 x 600 MW Singareni Thermal Power Project (TPP) located in Adilabad district in Telangana. The project has been developed by Singareni Collieries Co. Ltd (SCCL), India's second largest coal mining company.

This is the second 600 MW unit commissioned by BHEL at Singareni TPP. The first unit of the project was commissioned in March 2016. BHEL-built 600 MW rating sets comprise a four cylinder turbine, which is designed in-house, amply demonstrating the engineering prowess of BHEL. So far, the company has contracted 21 sets of 600 MW each, of which 17 have already been commissioned. A large number of similar sets ensure easy availability of spares and operator's familiarity.

BHEL has made a major contribution in Telangana's power sector with over 85% of the coal-fired power plants, amounting to 5740 MW, commissioned by BHEL.
