BHEL wins country’s first ever EPC contract


New Delhi, September 18: In a highly competitive market facing a slowdown in the finalisation of power projects, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved a major breakthrough by bagging a prestigious contract for setting up a supercritical thermal power project on EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) basis from Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Ltd (GSECL).

Valued at around Rs.3,536 Crore, the order for setting up a 1×800 MW coal-fired supercritical thermal unit at Wanakbori in Kheda District of Gujarat, has been won by BHEL against International Competitive Bidding (ICB). With this, GSECL has reposed confidence in BHEL’s proven technological excellence as also its capability in executing power projects of this magnitude on EPC basis.

Significantly, this is the first ever project of 800 MW unit rating ordered in the country on EPC basis and is also the highest valued order placed by GSECL.
