Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has executed 1,980 megawatt (MW) coal-based supercritical thermal power project in Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday (May 23), informed the power plant equipment manufacturer in a Bombay Stock Exchange filing.

Earlier, BHEL commissioned the third unit of the 3x660 MW Prayagraj Super Thermal Power Project.

The first two units of the project, commissioned earlier by BHEL, are already under commercial operation. Located in Bara tehsil in Allahabad district of Uttar Pradesh, the project is owned by Prayagraj Power Generation Company, a subsidiary company of Jaiprakash Power Ventures.

BHEL’s scope of work in the project included design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of the Boiler and TurbineGenerator package.

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 - Northern Region.

In the last 17 months, six supercritical sets have been commissioned in Uttar Pradesh, all of which have been installed by BHEL, the company said.

It further added, over 70 percent of Uttar Pradesh’s power generation capacity, aggregating to more than 17,000 MW, has been supplied by BHEL. In the last two years, BHEL has commissioned 4,960 MW of projects in the state.
