State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) on Monday won a Rs 2,475 crore contract for setting up a 600 mega watt thermal power generating unit in Tamil Nadu, on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.
The Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) had invited global bids for the EPC contract for setting up a 600-mega watt thermal power-generating unit at North Chennai Power Station.
This, according to BHEL is the first-ever order secured by BHEL for the new rating unit of 600 MW designed to sub-critical parameters.
According to the release, boiler and its auxiliaries will be manufactured by BHEL at its Tiruchirapalli and Ranipet works in Tamil Nadu, while the steam turbine and generator will be manufactured at the company’s Haridwar plant. BHEL’s Electronics Division, Bangalore, will supply the state-of-the-art controls and instrumentation system.
BHEL and TNEB recently signed a MoU to form a joint venture to set up a 2x800 MW supercritical thermal power project at Udangudi.
