New Delhi, June 20 (UNI) Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has won a Rs 1,840 crore contract for setting up a 500 MW thermal power project at Bokaro in Jharkhand.
The order has been placed on BHEL by Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC), a BHEL spokesman told UNI today.
Slated for synchronisation during the 11th Plan, the project will add 12 million units every day to the grid on commissioning.
Three BHEL-built units of 210 MW each are already in operation at DVC's Bokaro Thermal Power Station.
BHEL's scope of work in the contract includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of steam turbines, generators, boilers, associated auxiliaries, balance of plant and electricals, besides state-of-the-art controls and instrumentation.
BHEL is favourably placed for another EPC job involving installation of a 750 MW combined cycle power plant in Tripura by ONGC Tripura Power Co. Ltd.
The price bid for the ICB was opened last week where BHEL has outbid Alstom with a large price margin, the spokesman said.
