New Delhi, March 9: Amidst stiff international competitive bidding (ICB), Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has won a Rs.11,700 Crore order for setting up a 3×800 MW supercritical thermal power plant in Jharkhand.

The order for setting up the 3×800 MW Patratu Super Thermal Power Station Expansion, Phase-I (3x 800 MW) has been placed on BHEL by Patratu Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (PVUNL – a subsidiary of NTPC Ltd. in Joint Venture with Jharkhand Bijli Vitran Nigam Limited).

Significantly, this is the single largest order ever placed by NTPC or its subsidiaries and the second largest order ever won by BHEL. Located at Patratu in Ramgarh district of Jharkhand, the project will be executed by BHEL on Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis.

The project will significantly contribute to the nation’s quest for clean and eco-friendly power in multiple ways. It will reduce fuel consumption by employing high efficiency equipment working at higher operating parameters. The commissioning of the project would also lead to phasing out of the old fleet of sub-critical units presently installed at Patratu, enabling a quantum leap in efficiency of the station.
