Resource Digest - - CONTENT -

State-run power equip­ment maker BHEL has won a ma­jor or­der for the sup­ply of two 800 MW steam gen­er­a­tors with su­per­crit­i­cal pa­ram­e­ters from NTPC af­ter out­bid­ding com­peti­tors in an open global ten­der. “Val­ued at nearly Rs 3,500 crore, the con­tract has been placed on BHEL by NTPC Ltd, for set­ting up the 2x800 MW Steam Gen­er­a­tor (SG) is­land pack­age at Te­lan­gana Su­per Ther­mal Power Pro­ject (TNSTPP),” BHEL said in a press re­lease. The pro­ject is lo­cated within NTPC’S ex­ist­ing Ra­m­a­gun­dam Power Sta­tion in Karim­na­gar district of Te­lan­gana. BHEL’S scope of work in­volves de­sign, en­gi­neer­ing, man­u­fac­ture, sup­ply, con­struc­tion, erec­tion, test­ing & com­mis­sion­ing and civil works for the Steam Gen­er­a­tor is­land pack­age. The key equip­ment for the con­tract will be man­u­fac­tured at BHEL’S Trichy, Ra­nipet, Hyderabad, Jhansi and Ben­galuru plants and the com­pany’s Power Sec­tor divi­sion shall be re­spon­si­ble for civil works and erec­tion/com­mis­sion­ing of the equip­ment.

BHEL has a long-stand­ing part­ner­ship with NTPC and has sup­plied over 30,000 MW of the coal-based power plants of NTPC and its JVS, that ac­count for around 80 per cent of NTPC s coal-based in­stalled ca­pac­ity. Dur­ing the cur­rent fis­cal, BHEL has been en­trusted with or­ders for 10 su­per­crit­i­cal steam gen­er­a­tors and eight su­per­crit­i­cal steam tur­bine gen­er­a­tors by var­i­ous util­i­ties. Out of the su­per­crit­i­cal sets con­tracted, 6 Steam Gen­er­a­tors and 4 Steam Tur­bine Gen­er­a­tors have achieved ca­pac­ity ad­di­tion. BHEL has es­tab­lished the ca­pa­bil­ity to de­liver power plant equip­ment of 20,000 MW per an­num to fully meet In­dia’s de­mand for power gen­er­at­ing equip­ment.

Mean­while, the BHEL built Kosti (Um Dabaker) Ther­mal Power Plant (4x125 mw), the largest ther­mal power plant in Su­dan, was in­au­gu­rated by Pres­i­dent of Su­dan, Omer Has­san Ahmed El-basheer re­cently. This is Bhel’s largest oil-fired ther­mal power plant in the over­seas mar­ket and its first crudeoil fired ther­mal power plant in Africa. It fol­lows the com­ple­tion of Bhel’s 28 mw Nyab­o­rango Hy­dro pro­ject in Rwanda. Bhel has also re­cently com­mis­sioned a 2x20 mw Steam Tur­bine and Gen­er­a­tors for co-gen­er­a­tion ap­pli­ca­tion at Ten­daho Sugar Fac­tory in Ethiopia. Bhel has a pres­ence in 78 coun­tries across all the six con­ti­nents, hav­ing in­stalled over 157 gw glob­ally.
