Bhel starts another 600-mw thermal unit in Telangana
State-run power equipment maker Bhel on Thursday said that it has successfully commissioned another 600 MW coal-based thermal power plant in 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,” BHEL said in a statement.
According to the statement, this is the second 600 MW unit commissioned by BHEL at Singareni TPP. The first unit of the project was commissioned in March, 2016.
BHEL-built 600 MW rating sets comprise a 4 cylinder turbine designed in-house. So far, the company has contracted 21 sets of 600 MW each, of which 17 have already been commissioned.
