BHEL has bagged Rs 11,700 crore order to establish a 3x800 MW supercritical thermal power plant in Jharkhand. The order has been placed on BHEL by Patratu Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (a subsidiary of NTPC in JV with Jharkhand Bijli Vitran Nigam Ltd).
This is the single largest order ever placed by NTPC or its subsidiaries and the second largest order ever won by BHEL. Located at Patratu in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district, the project will be executed by BHEL on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.
It will significantly contribute to the nation’s quest for clean and eco-friendly power in multiple ways. It will reduce fuel consumption by employing high efficiency equipment working at higher operating parameters. Once the project is commissioned, the old fleet of sub-critical units will be phased out.
The project will further limit emissions by utilising modern flue gas desulphurization and selective catalytic reduction systems to capture pollutants like SOx and NOx. The project is the largest of its kind in the country to be based on Air Cooled Condenser technology, which will result in conserving a large amount of water.
