BHELPower major Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) on 15-07-2016 commissioned another 250 MW unit based on eco-friendly Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion (CFBC) technology, using low quality coal (lignite) as the primary fuel.

The 250 MW lignite based thermal unit has been commissioned at Bhavnagar Energy Company Limited (BECL)'s 2×250 MW each thermal power project, located at Padva village in Bhavnagar District of Gujarat,said the company. The project is equipped with CFBC technology that enables use of low quality lignite as fuel. The second unit of this project is also in an advanced stage of completion.

Significantly, this is the third 250 MW unit based on CFBC technology, commissioned by BHEL, with two other units having been commissioned earlier by the company in Tamil Nadu, the statement said. In addition, BHEL has earlier executed the 4×125 MW Surat Lignite Power project at Nani Naroli in district Surat, Gujarat, also involving CFBC technology. CFBC boilers are highly fuel flexible and can burn a wide variety of fuels, including lignite, efficiently.

These are also highly environment friendly with very low pollutant emissions. Commissioning of this CFBC technology based unit has reinforced BHEL's leadership status in execution of a variety of thermal power projects involving supply of state-of-the-art equipment, suited to Indian coal and Indian conditions,it added.

BHEL's scope of work in the contract envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Boilers, Steam Turbines and Generators along with associated Auxiliaries and Electricals, state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs).
