Public sector power equipment manufacturer Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) has bagged an order from the Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL) for setting up 700 MW supercritical Unit-3 at the Bellary Thermal Power Station (TPS) in Karnataka on a turnkey basis. The company won the bid for the Rs.3,700-crore contract in an international competitive bidding process, according to a BHEL release.

While BHEL had supplied the equipment for Unit-1 at the Bellary TPS, it is now executing Unit-2 at the power generating facility. “The company has commissioned about 5,000 MW of power generating sets in the state, which include thermal as well as hydro units of various ratings,” said the release.

BHEL is also executing the 2x800 MW Yeramarus supercritical TPS of the Raichur Power Corporation Limited (RPCL), a joint venture between the company and the KPCL.
