BHEL successfully commissions 363.3 MW Gas Turbine-based CCPP in Tripura


New Delhi, November 17: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned the second module of the 2×363.3 MW gas-based Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) of ONGC Thermal Power Corporation (OTPC) in Tripura.

Located at Palatana in Udaipur district of Tripura, around 50 kms from Agartala, the CCPP comprises two modules of 363.3 MW each equipped with fuel efficient advanced class Frame 9FA Gas Turbines. BHEL had won the contract for setting up the CCPP on EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) basis, against International Competitive Bidding (ICB)

Notably, with the commissioning of this module, BHEL has commissioned nine modules of Frame 9FA Gas Turbines in the combined cycle mode, in the country.

BHEL has so far commissioned 911 MW of gas-based and hydro sets in Tripura which accounts for 100% of the state’s generating capacity. BHEL had earlier commissioned 14 Gas Turbines of smaller rating upto 21 MW in Tripura as the sizes were limited by logistic constraint. The Palatana project is the first and the largest of its kind in the entire North-Eastern part of India. BHEL is also presently executing another gas-based project of 100 MW of NEEPCO at Monarchak in Tripura.
