BHELPower equipment maker Bhel today commenced commercial operations of its first 800 MW unit, supercritical thermal plant. It also marks Bhel's foray as a developer into the field of power generation. Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd (KPCL) and Bhel are the main equity partners of RPCL, the owner and operator of this power plant.

"The milestone was achieved for the first unit of the 2x800 MW Yeramarus thermal power station of Raichur Power Corporation Limited (RPCL), in Raichur district of Karnataka," Bhel said in a statement.

Bhel said it completed this state-of-the-art supercritical project on turnkey basis.

It supplied and executed 4,010 MW of coal based sets for KPCL and its joint ventures, which account for 95 per cent of the utility's coal-based installed capacity.

Bhel is also presently executing KPCL's first gas-based combined cycle power project of 370 MW capacity involving a fuel-efficient advanced-class gas turbine at Yelahanka, Bengaluru.
