Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has recently commissioned all the 3 supercritical units of 660 MW each at the 1980 MW coal-based Lalitpur Super Thermal Power Project (STPP) in Uttar Pradesh within a span of just 85 days.
This has been achieved as a result of enhanced focus on project execution by way of innovative erection techniques and meticulous project management. Located in Lalitpur in Bundelkhand district of Uttar Pradesh, the 3×660 MW Lalitpur STPP has been developed by Lalitpur Power Generation Company Limited, promoted by the Bajaj Hindusthan group.
The main plant package contract of this 1980 MW power plant is being executed by BHEL. Significantly, all the three units have been synchronized by BHEL 3 to 4 months ahead of the schedule agreed between LPGCL and BHEL. This was made possible by compressing the erection and commissioning cycle, by the joint efforts of BHEL and LPGCL.
In the last one year, BHEL has commissioned 4 supercritical sets of 660 MW each in Uttar Pradesh, thereby significantly improving power availability in the state. Supercritical units are more efficient, consume lesser coal and are eco-friendly.
