Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) claimed to have clinched a major order for setting up a 660- MW supercritical thermal power plant in West Bengal amidst stiff international competitive bidding (ICB). In a press release issued on Monday, BHEL said that valued at approximately Rs 3,500 crore, the order for setting up the 1×660 MW Sagardighi Thermal Power Project Extension Unit-5 at Manigram village in Murshidabad district of West Bengal has been placed on BHEL by West Bengal Power Development Corporation (WBPDCL). The supercritical technology-based project would significantly contribute to the nation’s quest for clean and eco-friendly power and would cut fuel consumption by employing high-efficiency equipment working at higher operating parameters, the BHEL officers said and added that the project would further limit emissions by utilizing state-of-the-art emission control equipment – FGD and SCR systems- to capture pollutants to meet the revised emission norms, notified by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. The key equipment for the project would be manufactured at BHEL’s Trichy, Haridwar, Bhopal, Ranipet, Hyderabad, Jhansi, Thirumayam and Bengaluru plants, while the company’s Power Sector – Eastern Region division would be responsible for construction and installation activities on site, the release said.
