BHEL has secured a major order for developing a 660 MW supercritical thermal power plant in West Bengal.
The Rs 3,500 crore-order for setting up the 1x660 MW Sagardighi thermal power project extension Unit-5 at Manigram village in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district, has been placed on BHEL by West Bengal Power Development Corporation (WBPDCL).
BHEL’s scope of work in the project includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the main plant turnkey package, comprising supercritical boiler and turbine generator along with its auxiliaries, electricals, controls and instrumentation, switchyard, flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems, coal handling plant and ash handling plant.
The project would contribute to India’s quest for clean and eco-friendly power and would cut fuel consumption by employing high efficiency equipment working at higher operating parameters. The project will further limit emissions by utilizing modern emission control equipment - FGD and SCR systems.
Significantly, BHEL has so far contributed over 80 per cent of the total coal-based generating capacity of WBPDCL.
