 A 600 MW coal-based thermal power plant was recently commissioned by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), a maharatna undertaking, in Telangana.

The thermal plant unit has been commissioned at the 2x600 MW Singareni Thermal Power Project (TPP) located in Adilabad district in Telangana. The project has been developed by Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL), India's second largest coal mining company.
This is the second 600 MW unit commissioned by BHEL at Singareni TPP. The first such unit was earlier launched in March, 2016, a press release said.
 
BHEL-built 600 MW rating sets comprise a 4 cylinder turbine, which is designed in-house, amply demonstrating the engineering prowess of the enterprise. Till date, the company has contracted 21 sets of 600 MW each, of which 17 have already been commissioned. A large number of similar sets ensure easy availability of spares and operator's familiarity.
 
BHEL has been a major contributor to Telangana’s power sector, with over 85 percent of the coal-based power stations, amounting to 5,740 MW, having been commissioned.
 
Reposing confidence in BHEL’s capability of setting up power plants, proven technological excellence and superior performance of its equipment, the Telangana state utility has placed orders with BHEL for executing around 6,000 MW of thermal power projects in the state, on Engineering Procurement Construction basis.
