Power equipment maker BHEL on Friday said that it has bagged a Rs 1,300 crore order from NTECL, a joint venture of power producer NTPC and Tamil Nadu Energy Company, for supply of turbines to the upcoming Vallur Thermal Power Project in Tamil Nadu.

BHEL has won the order for the supply and installation of the boiler, turbine and generator package as an extension of the upcoming thermal power project at Ennore in Tamil Nadu, involving one unit of 500 MW, BHEL said in a statement.

The PSU is already executing a contract for the 2x500 MW Greenfield Vallur power project of NTECL.

As per the order, BHEL’s scope of work would involve designing, engineering manufacturing, supply, erection and commissioning of steam and turbine generators.

Being set up under the government’s mega power project policy, the Vallur project is targeted for synchronisation during the 11th Plan and would add nearly 24 million units every day to the grid on commissioning.

Aimed at equipping itself to meet the country’s power capacity addition targets in the 11th Plan and beyond, BHEL is enhancing its manufacturing capacity from the current level of 10,000 MW to 15,000 MW per annum, the release said.
