Bhel commissions 250-mw thermal power plant near Jamnagar

State-owned power equipment maker Bhel has commissioned a 250-mw coal-based thermal power plant in Gujarat.

The unit has been commissioned at the Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Ltd's (GSECL) Sikka thermal power station (TPS) by Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (Bhel), on EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) basis, the company said in a regulatory filing on Monday. Sikka TPS is located near Jamnagar, an industrial town in 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, it added. GSECL has recently entrusted Bhel with an order for setting up an 800-mw supercritical coal-based project at Wanakbori in Gujarat on EPC basis.
