BHEL wins TG Package order for 2x660 MW thermal power project in UP

The public sector Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) today said it had bagged an order for the Turbine Generator (TG) and associated packages for the greenfield 2x660 MW Khurja Super Thermal Power Project in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh.
Valued at around Rs. 1,600 crore, the order was won amidst stiff international competitive bidding (ICB), a press release from the company  said.
The order has been placed on BHEL by THDC India Ltd., a joint venture of the Government of India and the Government of Uttar Pradesh.
BHEL’s scope of work in the contract includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the TG and associated packages for the 2x660 MW Khurja supercritical power project.
The release said BHEL envisages indigenous manufacturing and sourcing of both the Turbine-Generator sets for this project, thereby providing impetus to the Government's ‘Make in India’ initiative.
"BHEL has been a major partner in the power development programme of Uttar Pradesh. Significantly, BHEL has contributed around 74% of the state’s coal-based power generation capacity, aggregating to approximately 17,000 MW," it said.
The key equipment for the project will be manufactured at BHEL’s Haridwar, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Jhansi, Tiruchirapalli, Thirumayam and Bengaluru plants. The complete system engineering of the package will be carried out by the company’s Project Engineering Management (PEM) division and the construction and installation activities on-site will be carried out by the company's Power Sector - Northern Region division, Noida, UP.
