Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved one more milestone by successfully commissioning another 250 MW coal-based thermal power plant at the upcoming 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 Bongaigaon TPS of NTPC Limited. Significantly, this is the highest rating coal-based power plant in the North East region.
Bongaigaon TPS is located at Salakati near Bongaigaon in Kokrajhar district of Assam. Also, Bongaigoan is one of the industrial towns of the state, which has a major petrochemical industry.
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. 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.
