BHEL commissions 250 MW eco-friendly CFBC technology


New Delhi, July 15: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned another 250 MW unit based on eco-friendly Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion (CFBC) technology, using low quality coal (lignite) as the primary fuel.

The 250 MW lignite based thermal unit has been commissioned at Bhavnagar Energy Company Limited (BECL)’s 2×250 MW thermal power project, located at Padva village in Bhavnagar District of Gujarat. The project is equipped with CFBC technology that enables use of low quality lignite as fuel. The second unit of this project is also in an advanced stage of completion.

Significantly, this is the third 250 MW unit based on CFBC technology, commissioned by BHEL, with two other units having been commissioned earlier by BHEL in Tamil Nadu. In addition, BHEL has earlier executed the 4×125 MW Surat Lignite Power project at Nani Naroli in district Surat, Gujarat, also involving CFBC technology.
