A.V.Krishnan, Executive Director, BHEL, Tiruchi, and other senior executives held a detailed review meeting with the visiting customers and discussed the supply status of components.
Mr.Krishnan briefed the officials about company’s capability in executing power plants with supercritical parameters up to 1,000 MW. He also said BHEL is concurrently executing 18 supercritical boiler units in various parts of the country.
While addressing the review meeting, Mr.Shishir Bajaj said that Bajaj Group is very keen to see that 3x660 MW Lalitpur Supercritical Thermal Power Project commissioned on time as this was the largest investment that Bajaj Group had ever made . He also exuded confidence that BHEL has the capability and capacity to commission the project on time.
Earlier, outbidding Alstom under stiff International Competitive Bidding ICB), BHEL has bagged the main plant package contract for three coal-fired thermal units of 660 MW each with supercritical parameters.
This is the first power project being set up by the Bajaj Group based on supercritical technology and by placing this order with BHEL, the customer has reposed confidence in the company’s technological excellence and capability. With this contract, BHEL has maintained its track record of bagging most of the orders for power generating equipment in Uttar Pradesh. The company has commissioned about 9,900 MW of power generating sets of various ratings in the State, so far. The order once again reflects the confidence reposed by Independent Power Producers (IPPs) in BHEL’s capabilities. In the last two fiscals, BHEL has received 71 per cent of their power plant equipment orders from IPPs.
