Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) successfully commissioned a 660-MW super-critical thermal unit in Maharashtra. This is the second super-critical unit commissioned at Mouda Super Thermal Power Station (STPS) in Nagpur district of Maharashtra.
The order for setting up two coal-based thermal units of 660 MW was placed on BHEL by NTPC Ltd. This is the fourth unit to be commissioned by BHEL at Mouda, where one unit of 660 MW and two units of 500 MW supplied and executed by BHEL, are already in operation. The key equipment for the project has been manufactured by BHEL at its Haridwar, Trichy, Hyderabad, Ranipet and Bengaluru works, while the construction of the plant was undertaken by the company's Power Sector - Western Region.
BHEL has supplied and executed more than 17,000 MW of sets in the state so far.
BHEL also 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% of NTPC's coal-based installed capacity.
