New Delhi: State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals today said it has bagged a Rs1,474 crore order from NTPC to set up 1,320 MW supercritical steam turbine generator package at Barh thermal power project in Patna.
“BHEL has bagged a Rs1,474 crore contract from NTPC for setting up 2x660 MW supercritical Steam Turbine Generator (STG) package at Barh thermal power project in Patna,” a company statement said.
This is BHEL’s first commercial order with supercritical parameters through the International Competitive Bidding (ICB) route. Power equipment made with supercritical technology are environment friendly and result in economies of scale for the company.
BHEL’s scope of work includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of two STG sets of 660 MW with associated auxiliaries.
The turbines and generators would be manufactured at the company’s Haridwar works, pumps and heaters at Hyderabad plant.
The company has recently won its first order for 800 MW supercritical boilers from Andhra Pradesh Generation Company (APGenco).
BHEL has also formed a joint venture with Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) for setting up 2x800 MW supercritical thermal power project at Ugangudi in the state.
