BHEL commissions 250 MW Thermal Unit in Gujarat


New Delhi, September 26: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved one more milestone by successfully commissioning a 250 MW coal-based thermal power plant in Gujarat. The unit has been commissioned at Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited’s (GSECL) Sikka Thermal Power Station (TPS) by BHEL, on Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis.

Sikka TPS is located near Jamnagar, one of the major industrial towns of Gujarat. This is the second unit of 250 MW rating to be commissioned by BHEL at Sikka TPS. The company had earlier commissioned the first 250 MW unit at Sikka in March, 2015. In addition, two units of 120 MW each, supplied and executed earlier by BHEL, are already in operation at Sikka.

The sets of this rating class, supplied by BHEL, are considered as the workhorses and form the backbone of the Indian power sector. These sets have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks. BHEL has so far contracted 251 sets of this rating class.
