Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has commissioned a 520 MW coal-based thermal generating unit in Andhra Pradesh. The unit has been commissioned at the 2 x 520 MW Vizag thermal power project of Hinduja National Power Co. Ltd (HNPCL), Visakhapatnam, which BHEL is executing on EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) basis.
Additionally, in Uttar Pradesh, BHEL commissioned a 660 MW supercritical unit of Lalitpur super thermal power project (STPP). This is the second 660 MW unit commissioned by BHEL in Uttar Pradesh within a fortnight.
Last month, BHEL commissioned the first unit of 3 x 660 MW Prayagraj super-thermal power project (STPP) at Bara in Allahabad district of Uttar Pradesh. The unit has been synchronised by BHEL four months ahead of the schedule agreed with the developer. It is reported that the commencement of generation from the unit will result in significant improvement of power availability in the state.
