Bhel to supply equipment to APGENCO project

New Delhi: State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (Bhel) on Monday said it has bagged an order from Andhra Pradesh Generation Company (APGENCO) to supply equipment to its Kothagudem thermal power plant.

“Bhel today baged a Rs27 crore order from APGENCO for supplying Phase Shifting Transformer for the Kothagudem Thermal Power Station," a company statement said.

Phase Shifting Transformer or PST is a combination of a shunt (a device which allows electric current to pass around another point in the circuit) and a series transformer, which helps relieve the transmission lines from overloading.

Bhel’s scope of work in the contract includes design, manufacture, supply, civil works, testing and commissioning of the transformer, it said.

Bhel supplies power equipment to all major utilities in the country, including NTPC, PowerGrid and State Electricity Boards.
