Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved one more milestone by successful commissioning a 250 MW coal-based thermal power plant (TPP) in Bihar.
The 250 MW unit has been commissioned at the upcoming, greenfield 1,000 MW Nabinagar Thermal Power Project (4×250 MW), being set up by Bhartiya Rail Bijlee Company Limited (BRBCL), a joint venture of NTPC Limited and the Indian Railways.
This is the first 250 MW unit to be commissioned at Nabinagar TPP, located at Nabinagar in Aurangabad district of Bihar. Execution of the other three units is also in progress. BHEL has a long-standing partnership with NTPC and has supplied over 30,000 MW of the coal-based power plants of NTPC and its JVs that account for around 80% of NTPC’s coal-based installed capacity.
Notably, the 200-270 MW rating class sets supplied by BHEL, today form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above national as well as international benchmarks.
