BHEL commissions 101 MW power plant in Tripura
State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has commissioned a 101 MW (Mega Watt) gas-based Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) at Monarchak (near Agartala) in Tripura.
The plant was commissioned on basis of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) based on the order placed by North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Limited (NEEPCO).
- In this project, BHEL’s scope of work included supply of Gas Turbine, Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) and Steam Turbine.
- It also supplied Generators and state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) including plant civil work.
- State-run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) will be supplying the gas for the project.
- With this, BHEL’s share in supplied sets in the installed power generating capacity of Tripura has gone up to 88 per cent.
So far, BHEL has supplied 1,000 MW of generating equipment in the north-eastern state of Tripura. Being a gas-rich state, the major share of the power requirement of Tripura is met through Gas based projects.
