Mumbai, Jan 23 (GCBusiness) Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) on Wednesday said that it has secured an additional order from Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (Mahagenco) for its ongoing 660 MW coal-based supercritical thermal power project at Bhusawal thermal power station (Unit 6).
The project is being executed by BHEL on Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) basis at Jalgaon district in Maharashtra, BHEL said in a filing with BSE.
Mahagenco has reposed faith in BHEL by awarding the additional order for installation of emission control equipment, changes in various equipment/subsystems due to change in coal, modification in CHP/AHP,
etc. With this order, the revised order value for the Bhusawal TPS Unit 6 EPC project is now around Rs 3,750 Crore. The initial order was won by BHEL against stiff International Competitive Bidding (ICB).
BHEL has been a leader in the emission control equipment business for several decades and was one of the earliest entrants in the country.
With this order, BHEL is poised to achieve its objective to indigenously design and manufacture key equipment for the entire range of emission control, thereby providing twin boost to the government’s plan of ‘Making in India’ and its Intended National Determined Contributions (INDC) for limiting the carbon footprint of
