BHEL commissions 250 mw plant in Assam
25 March 2017 Current Affairs: Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has commissioned a 250 MW coal-based thermal power unit at its Bongaigaon Thermal Power Station (TPS) in Assam .

BHEL is executing the main plant package contract for setting up three coal-fired units of 250 MW each at NTPC’s Bongaigaon Thermal Power Station. This is the largest coal based power plant in North East. 

The first unit of the power plant was commissioned earlier by BHEL and is presently operational while the third and final unit is in an advanced stage of commissioning. 

The sets of this rating class, supplied by BHEL, are considered as the workhorse and backbone of the Indian power sector. These sets have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks. 

At present, in Assam, BHEL is also executing a gas-based combined cycle power project of 98.4 MW at Namrup. The plant is already commissioned in the open cycle mode and the commissioning in combined cycle mode is in the final stages. 

BHEL is the market leader in the Indian Power Sector with a formidable installed base of over 1,70,000 MW of power plant equipment globally.
