Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned the second unit of the 2×30 MW Tuirial Hydro Electric Project (HEP) in Mizoram. Significantly, the unit has been commissioned by BHEL in less than a hundred days of the commissioning of the first unit, senior BHEL officials based in its Haridwar plant said on Wednesday. Located in Kolasib district of Mizoram, the greenfield project of North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Limited (NEEPCO) has been set up on the river Tuirial.
