Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 250 MW coal-based thermal power plant in Gujarat. The unit has been commissioned at Gujarat State Electricity Corporation’s (GSECL) Sikka Thermal Power Station (TPS) by BHEL, on EPC basis. Sikka TPS is located near Jamnagar, one of the major industrial towns of Gujarat. Two units of 120 MW each, supplied and executed earlier by BHEL are already in operation at Sikka. Another 250 MW unit, presently under execution at Sikka TPS, is also in an advanced stage of commissioning. The sets of this rating class, supplied by BHEL, are considered significant in the Indian power sector.
BHEL has so far contracted 251 sets of this rating class. GSECL has also recently entrusted BHEL with an order for setting up an 800 MW supercritical coal-based project at Wanakbori, on EPC basis. The company’s installed base of over 150,000 MW of power plant equipment coupled with its rich experience makes it a choice of utilities in the country.
