State-run BHEL on Monday said it has commissioned two gas-based power projects in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman.

“BHEL commissioned the 2x42-MW gas turbine-based power project of Al Ghail Power Company in Ras Al Khaima, near Dubai, and a 26 MW gas turbine generator at Oman refinery and petrochemical plant in Muscat,” a company statement said.

BHEL’s scope of work under the 2x42-MW project included supply of gas turbine generating units with auxiliary equipment and supervision of erection and commissioning.

In the Middle East, BHEL has already set up 14 power projects, besides substations, and supplied a host of equipment for the power and oil and gas sectors.

BHEL currently manufactures equipment that can generate 15,000 MW of electricity.
