Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has commissioned a 600 MW coal-fired thermal power plant in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India.
The unit has been commissioned at the 1 x 600 MW Jhabua thermal power project (TPP) located in Seoni district in Madhya Pradesh. The project is being developed by Jhabua Power Limited (JPL), a subsidiary of Avantha Power & Infrastructure Ltd (APIL).
This is the second project of APIL commissioned by BHEL, which previous earlier commissioned the 1 x 600 MW Avantha Bhandar TPP at Raigarh in Chhattisgarh.
BHEL’s scope of work in the contract envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of steam turbine, generator and boiler, along with associated auxiliaries and electricals, besides state-of-the-art controls & instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs).
BHEL-built 600 MW rating sets comprise a 4 cylinder turbine, which is designed in-house. So far, the company has contracted 21 sets of 600 MW each, of which 16 have already been commissioned.
The equipment for the project was supplied by manufacturing units of BHEL located at Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Bengaluru & Haridwar, while the construction work was carried out by BHEL’s Power Sector – Western Region.
In Madhya Pradesh, BHEL is presently executing two supercritical units of 800 MW for NTPC at Gadarwara. BHEL has contributed towards creating nearly two-thirds of the total power generated in the country, which according to the company indicates its testimony to the superlative performance of its equipment.
