Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has commissioned the 500 MW Unit-6 of National Thermal Power Corporation Limited's (NTPC) Feroze Gandhi Unchahar Thermal Power Plant (FGUTPP) in Uttar Pradesh.
 
For the project located at Unchahar in Rae Bareli, BHEL was awarded the contract for the manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of boiler, turbine, generator and associated auxiliaries, electrical, switchyard and station controls and instrumentation.
 
The key equipment for the project has been manufactured by BHEL at its Haridwar, Trichy, Hyderabad, Bhopal, Ranipet and Bengaluru works, while the construction of the plant was undertaken by the company’s power sector - northern region. Notably, all the existing five units of 210 MW at FGUTPP, have also been commissioned earlier by BHEL.
 
BHEL-make 500 MW sets today form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks. The PSU has already established its engineering prowess in the past through successfully delivering higher rated units such as 600 MW, 660 MW, 700 MW and 800 MW thermal sets having a high degree of indigenisation.
 
BHEL has a long-standing partnership with NTPC and the former has supplied and executed over 33,000 MW coal-based power plants of the latter and its JVs, that account for around 80 per cent of NTPC’s coal based installed capacity.
