BHEL has commissioned a 250 MW thermal power unit in Bihar. The unit has been commissioned at Barauni extension thermal power project of Bihar State Power Generation Company Limited. 

 
Located at Barauni in Bihar’s Begusarai district, Barauni extension power project has two units of 250 MW each. The other unit is also in advanced stages of execution. 
 
Notably, this project is being set up by BHEL on the ash dyke of old thermal units. It calls for special civil engineering for ground improvements and by successful launch of the unit, BHEL has demonstrated its exceptional engineering capabilities. This utilisation of the unproductive ash dyke for this purpose also addresses the issue of land scarcity. 
 
At Barauni, in addition to setting up of new units of 250 MW, BHEL is also carrying out renovation and modernisation (R&M) of two existing units which were earlier set up by BHEL 30 years ago. While the R&M of unit 7 has been completed, work on unit 6 is in advanced stages of completion. 
 
BHEL has so far commissioned around 4,400 MW capacity of power plant in Bihar for various power developers, accounting for about 84 percent of the total installed capacity in the state.
