Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has successfully commissioned another 195 MW thermal unit in Bihar, India.

This is the second 195 MW unit to be commissioned by the company at the 2 x1 95 MW Muzaffarpur thermal power plant Stage-II, which belongs to Kanti Bijlee Utpadan Nigam Ltd (KBUNL), a joint venture of NTPC Ltd and BSPGCL, in Bihar.

The first 195 MW unit at Muzaffarpur thermal power plant Stage-II was commissioned previously by BHEL in March 2015.

BHEL is the leading supplier of coal-fired main plant equipment to NTPC and its joint ventures, with an over 80% share in their installed capacity.

The company’s scope of work in the Muzaffarpur project envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of steam turbines, generators and boilers, along with associated auxiliaries and electricals, besides state-of-the-art controls & instrumentation and electrostatic precipitators.

Previously in the 1980s, BHEL had executed two units of 110 MW each at this project, which are still operational.
