New Delhi, May 29: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 250 MW unit at Parichha Thermal Power Station (TPS), in Uttar Pradesh. With this, 6 million units of electricity will be added to the grid of the power deficit state, every day.
The project had suffered a setback due to an unfortunate incident of the chimney collapsing, which was not in the scope of BHEL, exactly two years ago. However, to save time, the balance commissioning activities were completed by BHEL with a temporary chimney and the unit was synchronized to grid in February, 2012 itself. Coal firing could be done only after the availability of the permanent chimney in the first week of May, 2012. Finally, full load has been achieved despite constraints of Ash Handling System which was not fully operational.
Reposing confidence in BHEL’s capability and technological excellence, Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (UPRVUNL) had placed orders for setting up 2 units of 250 MW each (Units 5&6) at Parichha TPS Extn.
BHEL’s scope of work in the contract envisaged manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the main plant package along with associated auxiliaries and civil works for the main plant package for this power project.
The equipment for the project has been supplied by BHEL’s Haridwar, Trichy, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Bhopal and Jhansi plants, while BHEL’s Power Sector – Northern Region is undertaking erection and commissioning of the equipment.
