Tiruchirappalli : Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured an order from Jindal India Thermal Power Limited (JITPL) for the main plant package for an upcoming Thermal Power Project (TPP) in Orissa, involving two new-rating units of 600 MW each, valued at Rs.2,600 Crore.

BHEL's scope of work in this contract envisages design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of Steam Turbines, Generators and Boilers, along with associated Auxiliaries and Electricals, besides state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) and Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs).

This order for the greenfield power project, located at Derang in Angul district of Orissa comes close on the heels of an order for a 600 MW thermal power plant of Korba West Power Company Limited in Chhattisgarh. In the current fiscal, nearly 95% of the orders booked so far in the power sector are from private sector customers.

BHEL currently has capabilities and technology for the manufacture of thermal sets up to 1,000 MW rating. The company has also introduced new rating thermal sets of 270 MW, 525 MW and 600 MW to meet customer demand. In fiscal 2008-09, the installed capacity of BHEL-supplied Utility sets went up to 87,646 MW and the company maintained its share of 64% in the country's total installed capacity of 1,38,175 MW.

By 2011-12, BHEL's manufacturing capacity will be enhanced to 20,000 MW.
