New Delhi, July 11 (UNI) Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has bagged a Rs 2,175 crore contract for setting up a 600 MW thermal power generating unit at North Chennai Thermal Power Station in Tamil Nadu.
The order has been placed on BHEL by Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB), a BHEL spokesman told UNI today.
It is the second order secured by BHEL for the new rating unit of 600 MW designed to sub-critical parameters.
TNEB had earlier placed a similar EPC contract on BHEL for setting up a 600 MW thermal power generating unit at the same power station.
For the contract, the boiler and its auxiliaries will be manufactured by BHEL at its Tiruchirapalli and Ranipet works in Tamil Nadu, while the steam turbine and generator will be manufactured at the company's Haridwar plant.
The pumps and heat exchangers will be manufactured at its Hyderabad plant and electricals at the Bhopal plant. The state-of-the-art controls and instrumentation system will be supplied by BHEL's electronics division, Bangalore.
BHEL and TNEB had recently signed a MoU for the formation of a joint venture company for setting up a 2x800 MW supercritical thermal power project Udangudi in Tuticorin District in Tamil Nadu.
