Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned a 660 MW supercritical thermal unit in Maharashtra. This is the second supercritical unit to be commissioned at Mouda Super Thermal Power Station (STPS), located in Mouda in Nagpur district of Maharashtra.
The order for setting up two coal-based thermal units of 660 MW was placed on BHEL by NTPC Ltd.
The key equipment for the project has been manufactured at BHEL’s Haridwar, Trichy, Hyderabad, Ranipet and Bengaluru plants.
In the supercritical segment, BHEL has successfully demonstrated its leadership status and technological capability in the manufacturing and execution of 660 MW, 700 MW and 800 MW sets. Supercritical units are more efficient, eco-friendly and consume lesser coal.
