New Delhi: Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (Bhel) said on 25 July it has bagged a Rs431 crore contract from Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) for setting up a co-generation power plant at its Gujarat Refinery Complex.
Under the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract the power equipment major would set up a 2xframe-6 gas turbine-based co-generation power plant for IOC, Bhel said in a statement.
The power equipment maker’s scope of work in the project involves design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of two frame-6 gas turbine generators and two heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) of 100 tonnes per hour capacity, it said.
The company would commission the first unit in 23 months and the second in one month thereafter.
While the gas turbine generators will be manufactured at Bhel’s Hyderabad plant, the HRSGs and control systems will be manufactured at the company’s Trichy plant and electronics division, Bangalore, respectively.
Bhel is already executing a similar turnkey contract for IOC for setting up a frame-5 gas turbine-based co-generation power plant at its Haldia Refinery Complex.
