The Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL) will be setting up a 660 MW coal-based thermal power project with supercritical parameters in Maharashtra.
The Rs 2,800 crore-project will be built as an expansion project (unit 6) of Maharashtra state power generation company (MAHAGENCO)’s Bhusawal thermal power station (TPS) in Maharashtra’s Jalgaon.
The 1,420 MW Bhusawal TPS is presently equipped with two sets each of 210 MW and 500 MW ratings. All these sets have been supplied and commissioned by BHEL. Reposing its confidence in BHEL’s technological and project execution prowess, MAHAGENCO has entrusted BHEL with the contract for setting up the first supercritical set at Bhusawal TPS.
The key equipment for the contract will be manufactured at BHEL’s Trichy, Haridwar, Bhopal, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Jhansi, Thirumayam and Bengaluru plants while the company's power sector– western region shall be responsible for civil works and erection and commissioning of the equipment.
BHEL has a long standing partnership with MAHAGENCO and has a significant share of 81 percent in the coal-based power stations installed in the state by the utility. It is the market leader in both the subcritical as well as the supercritical segments in the country.
The company has secured orders for 50 supercritical Steam Generators (SG) and 43 supercritical Steam Turbine Generators (STG) - the highest in the country by any power equipment manufacturer. Of these, 15 SGs and 13 STGs have already achieved capacity addition.
