New Delhi: State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals said on 20 June it has won a Rs1,840-crore turnkey order from Damodar Valley Corporation to set up a 500MW unit at Bokaro Thermal Power Station in Jharkhand.
The unit would add 12 million units a day to the DVC Grid.
The company’s work includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of steam turbines, generators, boilers, associated auxiliaries, Balance of Plant (BoP) and electricals besides civil works.
Three BHEL-built units of 210 MW each are already in operation at DVC’s Bokaro Thermal Power Station.
The Bokaro project is slated to be synchronised during the 11th Plan.
BHEL has also bagged an Engineering Procurement Construction contract from ONGC Tripura Power Company Ltd for the installation of a 750 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant.
The price bid for the International Competitive Bidding (ICB) was opened last week where BHEL has outbid Alstom with a large price margin.
