Power Watch India - - DISPATCHES NATIONAL -

Bharat Heavy Elec­tri­cals Limited (BHEL) has achieved a ma­jor break­through by bag­ging a pres­ti­gious con­tract for set­ting up a su­per­crit­i­cal ther­mal power project on en­gi­neer­ing, pro­cure­ment and con­struc­tion (EPC) ba­sis from Gu­jarat State Elec­tric­ity Cor­po­ra­tion (GSECL).

Val­ued at around Rs 35,360 mil­lion the or­der to set up a 1x800 MW coal-fired su­per­crit­i­cal ther­mal unit at Wanak­bori in Gu­jarat’s Kheda dis­trict has been won by BHEL against in­ter­na­tional com­pet­i­tive bid­ding (ICB). Sig­nif­i­cantly, this is the first ever project of 800 MW unit rat­ing or­dered in the coun­try on EPC ba­sis and is also the high­est val­ued or­der placed by GSECL.

In a re­lated de­vel­op­ment, BHEL will de­velop a 20 MW so­lar plant at Mana­munda in­dus­trial es­tate in Boudh dis­trict. The so­lar plant at Mana­munda will be set up over 100 acres of land en­tail­ing an in­vest­ment of about Rs 150 crore. GEDCOL, had re­cently floated an EPC ten­der.
