Mumbai, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) said that it has bagged a significant order for the Turbine Generator (TG) and associated packages for the greenfield 2×660 MW Khurja Super Thermal Power Project in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh.
Valued at around Rs 1,600 crore, the order has been placed on BHEL by THDC India Ltd, a Joint Venture of the Union government and the Uttar Pradesh government. BHEL’s scope of work in the contract includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the TG and associated packages for the 2×660 MW Khurja supercritical power project.
Significantly, BHEL envisages indigenous manufacturing and sourcing of both the Turbine-Generator sets for this project, thereby providing impetus to the union government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.
BHEL has been a major partner in the power development programme of Uttar Pradesh. Significantly, BHEL has contributed around 74 per cent of the state’s coal-based power generation capacity, aggregating to approximately 17,000 MW.
The key equipment for the project will be manufactured at BHEL’s Haridwar, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Jhansi, Trichy, Thirumayam and Bengaluru plants. The complete system engineering of the package will be carried out by the company’s Project Engineering Management (PEM) division and the construction and installation activities on-site will be carried out by the company’s Power Sector – Northern Region division, Noida, UP.
