Outbidding competitors in an open global tender, Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has won a major order for the supply of two 800 MW steam generators (boilers) with supercritical parameters.
Valued at nearly Rs. 35 000 million, the contract has been placed on BHEL by NTPC Ltd, for setting up the 2 x 800 MW steam generator (SG) island package at Telangana super thermal power project (TnSTPP).
The project is located within NTPC’s existing Ramagundam power plant in Karimnagar district of Telangana. The power generated from this plant will help meet the state’s demand for power.
BHEL's scope of work involves designing, engineering, manufacturing, supplying, constructing, erection, testing and commissioning and civil works for the steam generator island package. The key equipment for the contract will be manufactured at BHEL’s Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Jhansi and Bengaluru plants and the company's power Sector division shall be responsible for civil works and erection/ commissioning of the equipment.
BHEL has a long-standing partnership with NTPC and has supplied over 30 000 MW of the coal-based power plants of NTPC and its JVs – approximately 80% of NTPC’s coal-based installed capacity.
