BHEL Commissions One More 600 MW Thermal Unit In Telangana

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned another 600 MW coal-based thermal power plant in the state of Telangana

The unit has been commissioned at the 2x600 MW Singareni Thermal Power Project (TPP) located in Adilabad district in Telangana. The project has been developed by Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL), India's second largest coal mining company.

This is the second 600 MW unit commissioned by BHEL at Singareni TPP. The first unit of the project was earlier commissioned in March, 2016.

BHEL-built 600 MW rating sets comprise a 4 cylinder turbine, which is designed in-house, amply demonstrating the engineering prowess of BHEL. So far, the company has contracted 21 sets of 600 MW each, of which 17 have already been commissioned. A large number of similar sets ensure easy availability of spares and operator's familiarity.

BHEL has a major contribution in Telangana's Power Sector, with over 85% of the coal-based power stations, amounting to 5,740 MW, having been commissioned by BHEL.

Reposing confidence in BHEL’s capability of setting up power plants, proven technological excellence and superior performance of its equipment, the Telangana state utility has placed orders on BHEL for executing around 6,000 MW of thermal power projects in the state, on Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) basis.

BHEL has established its engineering prowess by successfully delivering higher-rated units such as 600 MW, 660 MW, 700 MW and 800 MW thermal sets, having a high degree of indigenization.
