BHEL SUCCESSFULLY COMMISSIONS 500 MW THERMAL POWER UNIT AT CHHATTISGARH
New Delhi, August 4: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned the second 500 MW thermal unit at Marwa Thermal Power Station in Chhattisgarh.
Located in Janjgir-Champa district of Chhattisgarh, Marwa TPS has been set up by Chhattisgarh State Power Generation Company Ltd. (CSPGCL). The first unit of Marwa TPS was also commissioned earlier by BHEL.
BHEL has been associated with power projects of CSPGCL (and the erstwhile Chhattisgarh State Electricity Board), from the time when the 120 MW Korba TPS Extension-I was commissioned in March 1976.
Significantly, BHEL has a share of 94% in the installed capacity of CSPGCL and has so far commissioned 11 thermal sets and 3 hydro sets for the state utility. In Chhattisgarh, BHEL has contributed a total of 12,500 MW to the state’s installed power generation capacity, including Central and Private sector utilities.
The successful commissioning of the unit has reinforced BHEL’s leadership status in execution of thermal power projects involving supply of state-of-the-art equipment, suited to Indian coal and Indian condition
