BHEL commissions 600 MW Thermal Unit in Odisha


New Delhi, January 29: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved one more landmark by successfully commissioning another 600 MW thermal unit in Odisha. The unit was commissioned at Jindal India Thermal Power Limited (JITPL)’s upcoming 2×600 MW thermal power project located at Derang in Angul District of Odisha. This is the second unit of the pit-head project commissioned by BHEL. The first 600 MW unit was successfully commissioned by the company in May, 2014.

BHEL’s scope of work in the contract envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Steam Turbines, Generators and Boilers, along with associated Auxiliaries and Electricals, besides state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs).

Notably, this in-house engineered 4-cylinder 600 MW rating TG set establishes the engineering prowess of BHEL. The company has so far contracted 21 sets of 600 MW sets, out of which eleven have already been commissioned. These sets have a very high level of indigenisation. A large number of similar sets ensures easy availability of spares and operator’s familiarity. The 500 MW sets of this rating class, supplied earlier by BHEL, today form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks.

In Odisha, BHEL is presently executing 3,970 MW of thermal power projects which include 2×800 MW NTPC Darlipalli, 2×660 MW OPGCL IB valley and 2×525 MW Monnet Power Company Ltd., in addition to this JITPL project.
