BHELBharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has secured an order for the main plant package at the upcoming Bela Thermal Power Project (TPP) in Maharashtra, involving one new-rating unit of 270 MW. Valued at Rs 703 Crore, the order for the greenfield power project, located at Bela in Nagpur district, has been placed on BHEL by Ideal Energy Projects Ltd (IEPL) reflecting the customer’s confidence in the company’s technological excellence and project execution capabilities.

Coming close on the heels of an order for a 600-MW thermal power plant of Korba West Power Company Limited in Chhattisgarh, this order is testimony to the confidence reposed by Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in BHEL’s capabilities. It also reinforces BHEL’s leadership status in the execution of thermal power projects involving supply of state-of-the-art equipment, suited to Indian coal and Indian conditions.

Significantly, major private sector customers have been reposing confidence in BHEL and in fiscal 2008-09 itself, orders worth over Rs 13,000 crore were placed on the company by Jindal Power, Jaiprakash Power Ventures, GVK Power, Hindalco, HPCL Mittal Energy Ltd., Adani Power, Tatas and ACC, among others.

BHEL’s scope of work in the present contract envisages design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Boiler, Steam Turbine and Turbo-Generator, along with associated Auxiliaries and state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) including Generator and Unit Transformers.

BHEL has fully established state-of-the-art technology for the manufacture of thermal sets up to 1,000 MW rating. The company has also introduced new rating thermal sets of 270 MW, 525 MW and 600 MW to meet customer demand. In fiscal 2008-09, the installed capacity of BHEL-supplied Utility sets went up to 87,646 MW and the company maintained its share of 64% in the country's total installed capacity of 1,38,175 MW.

BHEL has been committed to the nation’s power development programme and has reaffirmed its commitment to the Indian Power Sector by equipping itself for the future, by way of technology, facilities and trained manpower to meet the country’s power forecast for the 11th Plan and beyond. For this, it has already enhanced its manufacturing capacity to 10,000 MW per annum and is further augmenting it to 15,000MW per annum which is  proceeding apace and plans are afoot to hike this further to 20,000 MW by 2011-12.
